Please help with '92 325i that won't start
Hello, my name is Luke and this is my first post. I bought a 92 325i in non-running condition. I am getting it ready to be my 16 y/o daughter's first car. I need some help diagnosing the problem and there seems to be some real knowledgeable people here.
The car did not come with a battery so I put one on and the motor now cranks over good but does not start.
I removed a fuel line and saw I was getting no fuel. I ran 12v to the fuel pump fuse and I got fuel at the engine but it still will not start. So I replaced the crank shaft position sensor and it still will not start.
I sprayed some starting fluid into the intake and the car sounded like it wanted to fire a little more, but still wouldn't start on the starting fluid spray.
I know I'm not getting fuel without jumping power to the circuit, but now I am not sure if I am getting spark or not. I am also not sure if I have enough fuel pressure.
I ordered a fuel pump relay and it will be here tomorrow. The car is a 4 door and has 200,000 miles. I don't know much about the history other than it ran one day, and the next day it would not. That was about 8 months ago that it died.
I have done a lot of work on GMs and Fords and so far I am impressed with the build quality of this BMW. I am hoping someone will take a few to help me work through this and get it running again. Thanks in advance for any help.
