M10 won't start, please help.
Alright, so I picked up this 1984 318i for 60 bucks.
Checked compression, cyl#1,3,4 all right around 150psi and cyl#2 is at 120psi.
I have spark, and new plugs.
Couldn't find anywhere too hook up a fuel pressure gauge so I just shot a spray of intake cleaner into one of the vacuum lines and it fined up for about 20 seconds. So obviously, it's fuel.
I'm not sure if I'm getting fuel pressure or not, but I'm going to rig up a T fitting to check the fuel pressure hopefully monday or wednesday.
I'm pretty sure it's my fuel pump thats the issue because I don't hear it turn on when I put the key to the on position, but I'm really not sure.
Where is the fuel pump/fuel filter on this car? is it in the tank? external?
Are the any common faults with fuel system's on this car?
I have no idea why, but my engine has electronic fuel injection. Not mechanical like the manual's and specs say. Any idea's?
