"My Toy" a '95 318ic let me down at a gas station. I got back in & nothing (just lights on dash but no noise). 2 guys gave me a push start & I got home (why I love a stick). I went to Auto Zone & they replaced my battery (w/o checking it) & it started. Less than a week later it happen again. Did some web searching and went to a salvage yard and replaced the alternator (a bear for a lil old lady to take off & replace) & still nothing. I ordered a starter relay and replaced it yesterday & still nothing. So I just ordered a new starter from Ebay today. Give me a break, this had better be it. What is going to be interesting is I do not have ramps and I found a video showing a kind of easy way to replace the starter underneath without having to remove lots of stuff above. Any suggestions? Oh before I forget, I had changed the cabin air filter awhile ago and had "not" put it all back (That is where the starter relay was) but this connection came out & I have no idea where it goes/sure hope it is nothing to do with starting. ANY SUGGESTIONS would be greatly appreciated new starter should be in Mon. or Tues.
