Over a week my 1994 325i kept getting harder to start. one day I went out to start it and it just wouldn't start. I checked the battery and It turns over but it just won't start. Can anyone please help me with this? I live on Kauai and there is no one to work on it.

welcome to the forums.. id investigate further into the battery problem first, check the FAQ forum, there is good information on batteries in two threads posted. once you have concluded that the problem isnt the battery than id look into a possible starter problem.

What do you hear, smell, see or feel when you try to start it?

Coil Pack? Plugs? Wires? Sounds like ignition problems...?
