Hi guys! I got a problem with starting on my E46 2002 318i. Wonder can anyone help me out?
When I start the ignition the engine does start but 8-10 seconds later she dies. The engine doesn't rev up and down in a crazy pattern or anything like that, however it's like she does try to rev up to idle but fails and then dies. Its sounds like the choke isn't kicking in or something? Then when I start the ignition straight after again the engine starts properly and stays running normally.
This problem tends to happen after the car has been sitting in the driveway/carpark for a couple of hours. But everyday now the same problem persists.
Is it water in my fuel maybe? Please please help!!!
