Mein Auto: E36 M3 Evolution
Hot weather starting problems

My E36 M3 Evolution seems to have suffered from a bit of sun stroke in the recent hot weather...

After sitting in the sun for a while, it has real problems starting, and threatens not to start at all. The enging turns over fine, but immediatley after that the revs drop off and it dies.

Anyone got any experience of this? Not sure if its a fuel related problem or something completely different

Big lack of power when it finally starts too - perhaps normal for these temperatures...or not?

I had a similar problem with my e46 touring. Ended up being bad injectors. So id check your fuel rail and injectors first.
