    1980 528i sometimes runs sometimes not

    Thanks for your reply I tried to get the pulse gejara tor out but I could get it to budge. Also is there a way other then continuity to see if it is working or not.

    1980 528i sometimes runs sometimes not

    Thanks for your reply. So it doesn't have points pretty sure it's transiterized ignition also pumpING fuel plenty. I just noticed that the TDC sensor has been cut and where the plug was is no longer there I do not know how to wire this back in and can't find any diagrams that show. Thanks again for your help.

    TDC question's

    Hoping to get some help. I have been trouble shooting my E12 1980 528i for start and stall and sometimes no start at all but then it will run perfect for hours. Just noticed it's TDC wire has been snipped off and where the plug was originally is no longer there. If anybody knows how to go about putting a new TDC in and how it's wired in some info on that would be much appreciated.
  4. I am going crazy trying to figure out what is wrong with my bmw. It will run great for hours and then nothing or it will start and stop immediately.
