    I am having an issue with my 08 E85 Z4 3.0si. It cranks over but does not start. I cleaned the mass air flow sensor and it started right up (twice) but 30 mins later it went back to just cranking over and not starting. Could it be that the sensor is bad or maybe the fuel pump (I can hear the...

    Hi there, ive had problems starting my 2009 BMW 530D estate. this morning it seemed a bit sluggish to start, but still worked.

    I'm having an issue starting my 00-M52TU 520i. The engine starts as normal but only very briefly as it stalls immediately. So, my first thought was blocked CCV. However, balloon test suggests otherwise. 2nd thought was Vanos, but my symptoms don't really match that either...

    I have a 2993 318is and it is not starting. The battery is good and I have fuel and all that. My problem is that my fuel pump is getting power to it but it is not turning when I turn the key.

  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Starting a couple of days ago, my car (E60 550i) began refusing to start randomly. Once in a while, I'll get in the car, put the key in, everything comes on as normal, but when I push the start button, the engine will not start. If I remove the key and let the car sit for a couple minutes and...
