Thumbs down

Today i was teaching somebody how to drive manual. The person i was teaching stalled the engine about total of 6 times. On the 6th time, i told him to start the car again, the engine started up but then died 1 second later, the check engine light and battery light was on. Then few minutes later i tryed to start the car again, this time i gave the car some gas before dieing, and amazingly the car started fine again. Now i've driven about 30 mins and started the car a few times already, and this problem is not occuring. I"m wondering what is this problem, and how to fix it? Plus, will this develop into something serious.

Thanks

perhaps to many starts and not enough solid run time causing the battery needing a chance to rest?

flooded it? What do you mean by that, because lately it has been raining nonstop for a couple of weeks. Explain more about flooding it.

Thanks

i think what he means by flooding is if you try to give the car too much gas, while starting, there is too much gasoline inside the engine, and not enough oxygen for it to combust. if the car gets flooded you should just wait a few mins before restarting.

i didnt catch what car you were driving, but most bmws are fuel injected, and you shouldnt have to touch the gas while starting the car

I only had to give gas that one time to start it up, because the engine was turning on for like 1 second then dieng. So, i decided during that 1 second, the engine was on, to give some gas. And it worked
