Hello and thanks for a site like this, my first post and it a problem....ha ha.
Can some-one please help? i just brought a 1995 530i v8 and have problems starting it.it starts one in every 10 times but seems not be be starting at all now.The previous owner had problems with the air mass meter and unplugged it , i brougt a new air mass meter removed the battery to reset it and now it does not start at all unless you tow it with another car and start it in 2nd gear,it cranks but just wont start and there is a strong smell of fuel in the engine,thanking you
Thats got to be a fuel pump problem, as the fuel pump even though electric does not pump until the engine is turning even if you sit with the ignition on it does'nt pump until you turn thr engine, so by towing the engine its turning mega time and the petrol is being pumped through.
