| | update of "mind busting for you all"
OK guys this is my problem: (starting) the car (1994 318i) always started fine since I bought it ( 2 weeks ago) but yesterday it rained and this is what I came to find.... I went in the car to start it up and nothing > battery was dead (but 7 hours earlier it started very well, it was not raining then) So I said to myslef "oh what the hell .... lets get a boost", I called the booster guy, he came and plugged his booster but the car REFUSED to start.
Ok ok ok, I removed the ecu (dme) and dried it nicely, placed it back, tried to start it .... same thing...no start. (with booster pack)
So, I took it to a garage, they pulled out the oil stick and it smells STRONGLY like gasoline. I left the place and said " fix it ". The car apparently was not giving any spark at all.
What the hell is wrong with that car?
I placed a brand new DME in the car today $1000+ and it got sparks but was VERY hard to start, it started only after we open the air filter box. I drove it home and it stalled a lot. Then it never started up again. ( it starts and gives up right away). What could be wrong now. Please help. I appreciate it a lot.
