It won't start
JA: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: 2006 BMW 325i
, cranks but does not start. Sounds almost like a car with the timing retarded too far. 75psi fuel pressure, visually confirmed coming out of injectors. Plugs will be dripping wet when cranked for 20 seconds or more. Have a second car present of same year/model, have swapped throttle body. Crank/cam sensors seems to be reading on our scanner. Spark is present on plugs. Have had valve cover off and engine
is dirty, but nothing is amiss inside. No change with air mass meter or MAP connected or disconnected. fresh gas, car has been sitting for awhile. Compression is in the 140-160lbs range.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: See previous message.
JA: Is there anything else the BMW Mechanic should be aware of about your BMW?
Customer: This is a used car dealer car. We are told that this problem just 'happened.' It is pretty obvious the car has sat for awhile and has had some pretty poor work performed in the past. Innitially the wires for the crank sensor has been ripped off and all the breather hoses were broken. Both have been rectified.
JA: Our top BMW Mechanic is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the BMW Mechanic in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the BMW Mechanic until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.
