    Hey guys, first time poster, first time BMW owner, haha.

    So I am from Australia picked up this second hand BMW 318i M40 e36 1993 and on the way driving home was like a 30minute drive I was close to home and the car had a little misfire, continued for a couple seconds fine then just died. I kept it in gear (manual) trying to see if it'd start up with the compression of rolling.
    I've never worked on a BMW or even driven one this was the first for all of it, all I know about them is the stuff I have read online; so with the same symptons I was having being no spark or no fuel pump starting people said to other people crank angle sensor. I went and purchased a new one and have fitted it and it still doesn't start, Just cranks. Also have replaced the coil because I thought it'd fix spark.

    Please can someone help me haha I just bought this thing to get me to and from work and didn't even get home :(
    Thank you so much!!

    Hi friend,

    To give some suggestion where to look i need more information;

    - does the ignition turn on to accessory's?
    - does the ignition key crank engine over?

    These will give me indication in which direction to suggest to look.

    Yeah, key turns to accessory, and the motor cranks over just doesn't fire. No fuel pump noise or spark.
