Can anyone offer me some advise on my starting problem with my 96 523i
e39 petrol? The car has 63000 miles on the clockI have just had a full
service ie. Plugs filters and oil. I now seem to have a problem with
starting the car - when I start the car (whether it be morning , noon
or night) the engine turns over for about three or so seconds and
seems to only fire on four cylinders. This is only when the starter
motor is running. It seems to be rough until it starts. Once it has
started it runs as smooth as you would expect. If i excellerate from a
stand still it seems to have a small flatspot on pull away, once past
this little spot it pulls fantastically. My main concern is the
starting. Could this be from a dieing battery (if so how would I
check?) I have just given the car a dose of "REDEX injector cleaner"
but so far - no differance. PLEASE if anyone could offer me some
advise I would b very greatfull.
Thank you for your time and effort. Best Regards Brendan
