Occasionally, my 528i will turn over for a few seconds but not crank. If I depress the gas pedal about half way it will start up. Sometimes I need to hold the gas pedal just enough for the idle to set in and everything is fine. This happens about once or twice a month but I always get her running and no problems for several days.
Any ideas on what I need to look at to make sure I don't get stranded?
I did a thorough search and didn't see any post similar to this.
