Hey folks,

I need some help identifying the cause of starting problem I had before I put my early production 88 e32 735i into storage last year.

After driving about 5 miles and shutting the car off, it would not restart. It would crank over but backfire after a little while. During a few attempts it seemed as if it was firing and going to start, but just stop/backfire.

Someone told me that it may be the "main" relay. What would this relay be and where would it be located.

TIA for the help and I am looking forward to getting my bimmer back on the road.
