Hi All,

THis is my first post on here and its on behalf of my dad, he owns a 320i F Reg Automatic and has problems on startup. I searched the previous posts but couldnt find anything similar.

My dad has found out that if that after driving the car just before switching off the engine he accelerates and pumps the accelerator, the next time he starts it, it fires up with no problem. Otherwise it turns over but struggles to start. Does anyone know what this points too?

We have checked the battery, spark plugs, a drain/leak in the electrics, starter motor. We haven't checked the distributor rotor and cap yet.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Runs fine once started, no problems on idling and car has ample power.

Its actually an E Reg which is a '87, apologies.
