1971 Other BMW Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
I have a finicky car, a 1971 BMW Bavaria 2.8, that only starts when you pour gas down the carbs. The carbs have been rebuilt; it has two. Numerous parts have been replaced including the fuel filter and fuel pump which has been replaced twice. That means it has had three fuel pumps on it including the original. The mechanic that I have working on it is stumped. It currently has a new Bosch fuel pump. The auto store said that the fuel pump should solve all of the fuel delivery problems. Hmm. Does it have something to do with the placement of the fuel pump? It was mounted right where the old one was. Could there be something wrong with the intake? Would a bad intake gasket cause it not to start? Bad intake manifold hose? Intake valve? I'm not a mechanic but it seems like it should be easier to fix. Just a matter of knowing what to fix. Any ideas? Thanks.
have the same problem?
