In Reply to: Help.. '92 525i will not start.. posted by Rick on January 29, 2000 at 00:52:36:

I would check out the fuel system first.Looks like a dying or dead fuel pump.Try removing the fuel line from the fuel rail and see if any fuel emerges from there as you crank up the engine.
It could also be a badly clogged up fuel filter.
AS usual,go for the cheaper and easier stuff first before plunging into serious dough.

moots '90 520i

: First, the car would start, well sort of, it would idle extremely rough for about a minute and die. like it was out of gas, which it is not.. I had it towed to the house and now it will crank over fine but will not fire at all... Where do I start, fuel system, elecrical, ignition?? Does this sound familar to anyone?? Please help...

: Thanks in advance
