Hello Everyone

Hi everyone,
i recently purchased a 87 325is from a friend for 150 dollars he owed me some money so we called it even. ive owned a 91 318i and loved it so much i decided to buy a fixer upper e30. problem is i cant seem to get it to run. cranks over and sputters a little but not much but nothing. is getting plenty of spark and fuel. so far ive replaced ecu, CPS, coil, & fuel pump. i dont think it is a fuel problem because using starter fluid didnt make any difference. spark on all cylinders seems to be fine. whats the chance of it being a timing issue? or any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated

As your engine is the M20 that has a timing BELT, it is possible that it has slipped... Have a look at the timing marks before we go any further..
Set the Crank to TDC and check that the cam timing mark lines up...

Welcome to the Werkz.

It probably depends on how far it has slipped. Are there any nasty noises when you crank it?
