JA: My old Jeep sounds like a steam radiator sometimes. It must be old age. The BMW Mechanic will know what your noise means and what to do about it. Is there anything else the BMW Mechanic should be aware of about your BMW?
Customer: yes, we are trying to fix it ourselves. I have a 91 325i
that runs fine. also we switched the crank sensor wires from my 84 745 since those are good to rule that out. but I am just guessing the sensors have the same output as the 325e is supposed to have. . We also checked the flywheel for the magnet. it is there. Also the car had been sometimes randomly not starting but after waiting and trying it would start. maybe unrelated when my son slammed the door the door locks would lock. we switched ecu's and no joy. same behavior.
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the BMW Mechanic about your situation and connect you two.
