Hi everyone, this is my first post at this site
I have a 1995 318i, It has 179K miles on it but the engine is in very good shape. Well it was in good shape. I was drving to work the other day and suddenly i lost my radio, and the car felt very heavy. I pulled over and turned the car off and it never started again. The battery died out of no where. Making me beleive i have a short somewhere.
I am a pretty mechanical person so i got to working. I jump the car, it is cranking but nothing else.......it turns over but doesn't fire. I thought it was the fuel pump first but, i had my wife crank it while my head was under the seat and the pump works, i even jump the relay and heard the gas spray to the heads.
I also checked if i was getting spark to the plugs. NO SPARK??? ........
thats where i am right now????
I think some how the short burned something out and i am not getting any spark to the wires.
Question 1......do i need a new distributor or a new ECU (all the relays are fine)
Please help.....I am dying here
