hello, i recently took my 93 318is to the car wash and when it came out the it wouldnt start would only click when i tried, and to top it off there was a fuel leak, i looked at the dme and it was drenched so i replaced it, thinking that it was the problem, and the same problem, so i decided to test the starter by turning it with the plugs out so there would be no compresion, when i did that a crap load of fuel shot out of the spark plug holes,so the starter would now turn, there was so much fuel in the combustion chamber that the starter couldnt turn, so that works. so i disabled the fuel pump, and cranked the engine till the fuel was out, looked in the manifold and found a couple light traces of fuel in there, what the hell is going on? maybee the fuel pressure regulator let loose? please if this has happened to you help me!!!
