95 525i e34 not cooperating with starter
Alright, heres my situation. Had to replace my fuel pump last week. So, Went ahead and ran the gas tank dry. Was gonna move the car to do the job, when suddenly, it refuses to start.... alright, I guess the fuel pump gave out.
SO... Went and spent the afternoon replacing the fuel pump, and adding some fresh gas to the car. Right.
Fired her up... Starter cranks, engine gives signs of catching, but never does.
Alrighty, so, here comes the checklist, the car is obviously flooded from the repeated starting attempts, I can smell the gas, so...we've got gas, sweet. one thing less to worry about. Air filter is brand new, so... We've got air. Last thing needed in this magical equation is a spark.
So, went and checked my plugs, sure enough, one of the boots (cyl 6) is cracked. Ugh, alright. Call up bavauto and get one sent out to me. It arrived today, sweet....pop it in and fire her up.
Wrong. Replaced the cracked boot. Attempt to start vehicle. Same problem, except...without any sign of the engine trying to catch. Just a starter cranking and not much else. Added more gas, checked the battery, even went so far as to check the power to each ignition coil, each coil is infact getting power. Added even more gas, 95 octane premium rediculously expensive crap, even seasoned it with some fuel injector cleaner/octane boost.
I don't know what else to do. I think i've covered all the bases, my codereader shows absolutley nothing wrong with any of the electronic widgets and whatnot. What the hell could this be?
