    My 2001 330ci (automatic) died when going up a hill. I tried to start the car back up but it cranked about 3 or 4 times but afterwards it wouldn't even crank. I have a bad battery so I tried charging it, but afterwards it still wouldn't crank. I also reset all of the codes, unplugged the...

    Hi Bought an E46 over 1 year ago. This 320D never starts on turn. I have to crank it for at least 40secs for it to start. I live in South Africa and when it gets cold (for us that is 15DegC / 59F) - it never starts. The battery is new - the crank is solid but it just won't start on turn. This...

    Bought a 2002 330CI that started but didn't run. It was previously broken into from the trunk, and it only has one key. It had a known low oil pressure issue when I bought it. 1. Dropped the oil pan and sure enough the oil pump nut was backed off, I tack welded it back on. Checked one...

    Hello guys, I've been tuning into this forum for about a year now since I bought my car, but have never made an account or posted a thread. Recently, I've have decided that the time has come for my failing automatic GM transmission to go away, and subsequently bought everything I would need...

    Hi I'm starting up this thread again because my other one died out. So today I was changing my tire and I had my car start 2 minutes before I did the job. I got back in my car and the car wouldn't crank. There's several things I did to diagnose. I check the battery which was fine, I checked the...

    Lately my 2003 330xi has been having an issue where sometimes it starts, sometimes it doesn't. I have checked and when it does not start, there is no fuel pressure at the fuel rail. It is not the pump/filter because that was replaced the other day at a dealer. It just happened to work...

    3 days after purchasing my 2000 323i BMW the car would not start. Everything would turn on(radio, A/C and lights) but there was just silence when turning the ignition. I researched no crank/no start issues and from the issues I was observing thought it was the Neutral Safety Switch. I looked at...

    My 2000 323i died at a traffic light. When I got it home I did not hear the fuel pump cycle when I turned the key on so I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator. It started the first time I turned the key and the engine revved up and down between 2000 and 3500 rpm for...

    Hey everyone and thanks in advance for any input you might have for me! I'll lay out the series of events to hopefully pinpoint the culprit. About 2 months ago, I installed an aftermarket touchscreen radio. Before I put it in, I tested everything and it was perfect. After I put it in, the...
