Hi Rick,

Are you by any chance up north somewhere and experiencing cold temps?? 1/2 tank of gas or less in there?? If so, may be some condensation in the fuel system. Top up the tank and that shouls solve the problem. Otherwise, continue with the cheap stuff (fuel filter, fuel pump...) Good Luck.

'90 525i

: 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
: Rick Jenkins
