Hi all nice forum you got here, Well i have a problem with my E36 that is driving me nuts and have had so many different garages tell me different things im lost on what the problem could be.
When i get into the car when its cold it will start up fine. But if i drive until the engine reaches running temp and park up to go into a shop for instance when i return to start the car all i get is the sound of the starter spinning and it dont engage.
I found out that if i put it into gear and release the clutch slightly while i turn the key it will engage eventually.
Can anyone give me a clue what the problem might be. The last person i spoke to said it might be the solenoid getting hot could this be the cause ?
