Hi. My E61 has been great., I started having issues with it starting after a day or overnight. Following advise from a local parts supplier I changed the glow plugs and then the glow plug module. I have also changed the seals on the head. It did run better afterwards. I also had a garage check out the battery which they say is fine.

BUT still same problem. Once I have got it started it will start first time during the day.

Following advise on the forum I have changed the DDE Relay. Still same problem.

It turns over fine. But doesn't start. I was wondering whether it was a fuel problem but then it would not make sense that after two hours it will start again as sweet as a nut...

Ideas and suggestions welcome. At this rate I will be putting in a new engine in parts at least.

Could be the fuel running back to the tank.
When did it last have the fuel filter changed that would be my start point.
