    Hello everyone, First time bimmer owner here. 2007 530xi with the N52. For the sake of time I will try to give a relatively quick overview. I bought this car as a crank, no start vehicle. Previous owner had limited mechanical experience and I bought it thinking it could be an easy fix. Car...
  2. General BMW Questions
    I guess I missed the deadline for ODBII by one year. So is there ODBI on my 1995 740il or any other diagnostic tool for this car? Bought this car as a project. Couldn't open driver side doors and it cranks but won't start. Not even the first pop. Managed to get the doors open, it was just a...

    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...

    First of all, hi everyone, im new around here. So heres my problem: my 528i '97 has been running perfectly fine up until a week ago.

    So the problem is, I can turn the key and have everything light up just like normal, except for the spark plugs and fuel pump. I hooked up a plug outside the engine to check for spark and came up with nothing. I also put a gauge on the fuel rail and came up with no pressure. Thats the problem...
