Today I was waiting for someone in my car(89 M3)...and it was just idling and I was listening to music. All the sudden the engine stopped but the tach was goin crazy...move all over the place. There was also alot of clicking and other electirical noises coming from the engine when I had the key in the on position. the noises stopped when I turned the key to the off position. I tried to start the car again but it would just turn over and almost sound like it was going to start but then would not. I also smelled gas. As I have never heard of this type of problem occuring in any car, does anyone have a clue as to what is wrong with the car?? Anyhelp would be graciously appriciated!!!!!!thanks

p.s. I do have a TMS chip if that makes any differnece...I;m gonna try it with the stock one in.
