First I would like to say hi to everybody here, this is my fist post.
To start off with, before today, I never even had the slightet hint that my fuel pump or something was wrong.
All of a sudden I stoped for 5 minutes today to get a bite to eat. After that I started the car, it started up, chocking big time, with the rpms not able to get past 500, then it died. After that I try to start the car and it will not start up.
One thing i did notice is when I am trying to start the car it is making a lot more vibration than it would normally make when trying to start the car.
I have a 1990 325IS with about 175,000. I know for a fact that it is the original fuel pump.
Any help or tips on what might be the problem will be much appreciated since I am hurting a lot financially.
Like I said in my first post, it ran for about 45 seconds, and I could not get it past 500 rpms no matter how much pressure I put on the accelerator then it just died. Now it will not start period after that happened.
hi im also a first timer here, i have a 1995 318 and i have exactly the same problem,i'v been told it's a "flooded engine". The cure press fuel pedal fully down then try to start car,dont take foot off, it should after alot off noise fire up.I did this but all it did was drain battery, may work for you.
