I have an issue with my E46 XI that myself or the dealer can solve.

When starting the car it continually cranks for a while and in some events it will need to be started again. What makes my situation unique is that my car starts just fine from a cold start, but when I go to start it after its been sitting for an hour or more while warm it does this. I have taken it to the dealership and they told me they did a software upgrade to it, but it still has the same issue. Has anyone else has the issue of their car having difficulties starting at all?

Any help or assistance I would appreciate.

Thanks in advance.

Start at the beginning, fuel pump, and vacumm. This means check hoses that may have cracked or become disconnected. Turn the key to position one and make sure you here the fuel pump going. Check all electrical connections and make sure they have no build up. Thats all I got for you.
