    Background: I recently purchased an 02 325xi (120k) that was overheating after being driven ~5 min at highway speeds. OBD2 had 2 codes: overheat and misfire/ no fire in cylinder 3. Online research indicated to replace the cooling system. I drove to the part store with no issues, but the car...

    If the immobilizer is active (armed), does the engine turn over (cranking but not starting) when you insert the key and try to start it? Or nothing would happen (as in no crank, just the dash lights)? Thanks

    Hey pals hate to make a no start thread but I'm looking for some advice. Put a new battery in 2 days ago (it was dead flat, I hadn't driven in a couple of months) and car started fine after. Yesterday no start. It cranks and sounds like it's almost going to start. My coil packs are getting...

    Hi, I have a 2013 535i xdrive - and I've been having an issue recently where if the car is parked, I try to turn it on and it doesn't start. It cranks, turns over, shudders and dies. I wait an hour and car is perfectly fine until the next 2-3 days until it happens again. There are no error...

    Hey guys my buddy has a 2007 525xi and about a week ago it's been having problems starting up where it just cranks but never starts. The car had a similar problem about a month ago where it turns out the IBS was the issue. After that was fixed the car was running completely fine up until now...

    Hey bros, As the topic says I have failure with CPS-Crank sensor. Problem started few months ago, when my car started running like crap. I did diagnosis for it and it showed crank and cam sensor failure. I changed both and car fixed, it started running smoothly. But same evening I fixed...

    Does anyone know the torque spec of the crank nut on the N54? I saw 305 ft/lb and my buddy said he saw 1000 ft/lb but I don't think he is right.

    Hi I have a 1993 BMW 325is E36 manual. THIS PROBLEM IS NOW FIXED! I have looked at almost every thread involving crank, no spark no start. I'm down to my last nerve and I have no explanation for what is happening. So first of all here is the explanation. The car was running just fine until...

    Had a 2008 328i. Just bought a 2011 335D with 62,xxx on it. Like an idiot, let my fuel get critically low, topped it off (with vehicle running, dont hate me), drove for about 20mi. Shut down the car, came out about two hours later, hit the start button, and she cranked for about 15 seconds...

    Hi, I'm in a bit of a predicament. I just changed the oil for the 3rd time in my 08 535xi and note the car won't start, it won't even try. I get I drive errors for 4x4 and start off assist. Also a battery consumption warning. I've tried jumping the car, charging the battery overnight, and now...

    Instead of typing it all out, i decided to just take a video of the situation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny-YcDP14gs&feature=youtu.be https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0TAGCgJeQ8&feature=youtu.be In a nutshell, the car cranks but will not start. Any ideas?

    Ok, so now I'm about to give up on this car! Bought my first BMW ever after selling my '12 Audi A5, thinking I would save some money on buying an old car.. And the new cars are just boring anyway.. well, so far It's been nothing but trouble! So to the point: The car is a '98 e39 520iA with...

    Ok, so my car will not start anymore, as of yesterday, but lets start from the beginning. 1 year ago: my security alarm system stopped working(probably irrelevant for this post) a couple months ago, when temps started cooling(live in chicago): rough idling. the car would idle at lower and...

    Hello, I have a 2000 740I with 197,xxx miles that will crank for a while and start- no stalling after it has started. After I shut it off, it will crank but not start. So sometimes it will start after a few seconds and other times it will not start at all. :bawling: These are the things I have...

    Hey guys, have an issue that I REALLY need some input on from someone who is knowledgeable. First off this is on an 01 e53 (X5), but I'm posting here b/c of a lack of responses on prior attempts in the X5 forums, and this is where I think more enthusiasts will be to respond (mods please don't...
