Are any BMW's running

I would be, but I'm getting ready to head out to continue trying to diagnose my no-start on my E36.

Meant the Daytona 500 Steve, as in Nascar, lol.
Sorry to hear of you're no start. Hope it's nothing major.

Oh I definitely I knew what you meant Just showing my loyalty to BMW

The E36 no-start is major. I have checked virtually every fuel and spark system. I don't have spark and I think I have determined that the DME is bad, but I'll keep looking. It is my spare so I don't have to be pressed for time.

Wish I could help you on this but I think you've covered most of the possibilities. What about the crank sensor? Would cause a no spark situation?

If your DME is blown or is beyond repair, would you consider selling?

"and he passes on the inside corner to the left, still on his tail into the left turn, neck and neck through the straight into the left..."

Nope. Crank sensor ohmed out fine.

No. I'll keep looking for a used DME. The local Pull-A-Part charges about $25 for one. Just waiting on the right car to come in. And of course, I scour CL every night for one in my area.

From jalopnik.com:
"Car of Tomorrow? Blow me. We'll take the Car of Yesterday, back when stock car racing was really a race of stock cars, thank you very much."

This sums it up.
