Hi all, I have a major problem that is driving me crazy!
I was out driving the other day and I pulled up to let someone pass me. My car decided to just die! No reason at all! It had been running fine previous to this. It is a 318i on a k plate with 120,000 on clock, looked after no major problems. We couldnt start the car for a couple of hours. I managed to get a tow and whilst the car was being towed decided to turn the car over and it started first time! when we got back the car didnt want to start again it was trying ta start just wouldnt fully turn over. I had it checked out and was told that the fuel wasnt getting to the car properly, had a brand new fule pump fitted, car now starts first time just backfires really bad and wont pull away!! its become very sluggish obviously to dangerous to drive! I have had a new exhaust inclding cat and exhaust, new plugs and leads, new rotar arm and distributor cap,new fuel filter new oil filter its had the head rebuilt, I really am stuck at what is wrong with the car! I have had it put on 2 seperate fault code readers and no fault codes are found. (at least theres nothing wrong with the electrics!) but what is it? I would really grateful for any help!!
