Why isnt my 328i not starting


Asked by Oct 13, 2016 at 11:09 PM about the 2007 BMW 3 Series 328i

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car all of a sudden won't start. I tried jumping it, and nothing. All lights
work, car makes a pumping sound as attempting to start, yet again, nothing. I
tried resetting the battery, and sad to say, nothing once again. Please help.

I would start seeing if your car is getting any fuel. My 330i had the same problem. I sprayed starter fluid into the intake and the car started for a few seconds so I knew it was the fuel. If that's the case you need to check if the fuel pump is getting power or if the fuel pump went out. You can find articles online on how to check and change these.


As with any car that won't start, check for fuel, air, and spark. Do you hear the fuel pump engaging when you turn the key to the "on" position?
