  2. Hi Guys I have a 1989 635CSI that will not hold charge.. I have replaced the battery and altenator but when i drive lights start to go dim then when i stop it wont start as no charge. Any ideas/common faults? Thanks Tim
  3. Hi Last post i stated that car would not start. This was due to poor compression, so we filled the pots with oil over and over and 18 spark plugs later if started. The car now is a ##### to restart and back fires trying. Ticks over well enough but when you switch it off it is hard to start and again back fires. Any ideas? Thanks Tim E92 M3 E24 635 CSI
  4. Cheers It's just turns over with no attempt to start. I did think the sensors might be an issue. Bit strange .. Thanks again :)
  5. Hi Bought a bmw 635 csi that had been stood for 2 months it is MOT'd for 10 months. Put a new battery on her, drained old fuel and put fresh in but it will not start. Has great spark on all 6 plugs l, pump working as should, fuel on all 6, dried plugs and put oil in pots to create compression but it will not start. Any ideas will be greatly received Cheers Tim
