Customer Question


I have a BMW 330d M Sport Automatic E46, 2006 is the year I beleive

I pulled the car pulled up outside a shop, came back and it would not start, the fuel was low but not low enough to have any in it, the RAC cameout and towed me homw said it was more than likely the starter motor.

I tk it to my local mechanic {not a BMW one} aguy I have used for years, afterinvestigation, and replaced starter motor, fuel injectors, relays, crank shaft thingy it wouldnt fire up.

It would fire up with 'Ethanol'fuel but not Diesel, its now getting Diesel to the front but wont fire up

Can you help or giveme any ideas please, its been stuck at the same garage for 5 weeks

Thanks any help or advice appreciated

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

My name is MIKE -

You have done a lot to this already - and spent a lot on replacement parts etc -

Do you have any fault codes to give me?

Plus - what is the mechanic saying / concluding thus far ?

Too - what is the mileage on the car - and what is its service history like?

Rgds- MIKE......................................
