Hey guys wondering if anyone ever has this problem when i go to start my car it will turn over and over and over but it will never start unless i vary the gas alot. Does anyone have any clue what could be causing this. Its embarrassing as hell when your BMW wont start. "Oh you have a BMW, rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,oh whats wrong with your car." "Damn it. " help me please .
i have the same problem i am suspecting thats its the injectors cleaners wont work that well trust me lol i have tried pretty much alll of them u have to go to a mechanic or someone who has a injector cleaner machine
oh ya once u start it and it runs when u shut it off and try to start it right away will it turn on mine does
I am having the same problems with my 325ic. Sometimes it start running like s#it when I am driving and then run totally fine after that. Sometimes (like now) it won't even start. If I wait a day or two, it will start. I don't know if it is the injectors or the fuel pump. Any insight will be GREATLY appreciated.
I bit the bullet and took it to a shop qualified to work on Bimmers and low and behold it was the fuel pump. Cost about 433 to replace along with fuel filter. Mechanic said he used a BMW pump that cost about 250. I will be cracking the access cover open to verify that.
FYI pumps take 30 min to an hour to replace-do it yourself and save.
