Asked by Jun 04, 2016 at 06:35 PM about the 1990 BMW 5 Series 535i

Question type: General

I have a 1990 530 BMW and the battery is draining
and it won't start unless I prime through the air box
but once it starts it runs like it's regular and then
when I stop shut it off I have to prime it again to
get it to start

I guess from when I was a mechanic in Berkeley..just about burned up the startermotor, until a smart-ass co-worker pointed me to this...a five cylinder Audi..felt nothing but shame~
