NOOB here
Howdy folks, my name is kenny. i just aquired a e30 325is. the car belonged to my best friend that perished in a motorcycle accident last week.
i am a complete noob to these cars. i am trying to finish the car the way he was trying. it currently does not run though. it is getting no spark. i did the basic tune up with all bosch parts, but there is no fire. the crank position sensor seems a little cut up from the waterpump pulley, but i was wondering if anything else might need to be checked as well.
i have a haynes manual, but it's pretty much usless. are there any other repair manuals that are affordable out there, or any suggestions on what it might be?

replaced so far:
bosch plugs, cap, rotor, tested coil, checked all fuses, and cleaned a few filthy electrical plugs.

Hi Kenny,

I'm very sorry for your loss. I hope you enjoy your new bimmer. Common causes for not getting spark:
  • 12 volt not getting to + lead of ignition coil
  • 6 volt not getting to - lead of ignition coil
  • Faulty ignition switch
  • Timing belt
Just a few things to check.
