Now I am wondering... does this particular BMW have some sort of engine block sensor that would prevent the car from starting if the head gasket or block got blown/warped?
Could the timing chain have broke upon overheating, causing it to not run? I'm really baffled by this. An engine is BIG money. Lol. I'm trying to figure out what else could be preventing it from running.
I currently do not have the car in my possession. I have someone keeping it in storage down state.
When I moved it I got it to drive because I constantly fed it gas until I could get the engine to roar, then i popped the clutch and drove it off.
Is it possible the issue could be simply the head gasket or head itself? I was also told that overheating a bmw like that could tear the timing belt/chain, causing it to not run.
Are their any electronics, like sensors, that could have gotten fried with the heat making it not run?
I appreciate your insight
