E46General discussion and technical help for 1999-2004 3 series cars.
ok so we ggot a steep driveway, and the 330 wont start if its faced down hill. it makes a sound slike the started went out or something. it clicks, the lights flash as if its starting and then nothing. no turn over or anthing. weird thing is if i put the car on the same driveway faceing upwards(fron of car is at top of grade) then it doesnt do it. The symptoms go away as sonn as u put the car on flat land and giv it five minutes. any ideas?

we also have an extrmely steep driveway, it did something similar, first of all, our battery was practically dead, but it only happened once, but on the driveway, u come to start it, it just whines, roll down the hill and on the road, u can start it fine, it sounded like the starter was slipping b/c every once in a while it would catch and the car would ALMOST turn on but not really
