After driving for short distance it won't start I have tried every thing on the book on my BMw 318i m40 1992 model

have you tried having the fault codes reading section of the book
It is the first line of the trouble shooting
it appears that there is an electronic part break down for over heating
it could be in the ignition control module, ECM, coil/s, immobilizer
try exchanging the ECM with a known good one and fix any faults shown on the code scanner

There are 2 possibilities: the spark plugs are not firing or the fuel system is clogged.

There are 2 ignition switch recalls for your vehicle:

Check your vehicle for the recall service stickers or call BMW and have your VIN number ready when you call and have them run your vehicle service history.

They should be able to tell you if the recall had been performed on your car.

Putting ignition switch back in a 1982 528e bmw

Hi There,
I would recommend you get the exact specs for that ignition switch. The problem is that if your car is already too old, you will have another issue coming up elsewhere. BMWs are usually made with a "road life". Once it has exceeded myriads of problems start to come up. When you fix one, another comes up. If you can, get a newer model.

Kind Regards,

BMW 530, 2004, how to reset the car to recognize the new filter

Hi aajabbar , this can be tricky if you haven't reset the cbs indicator before
first turn the ignition on so that you have all the ignition lights on and the engine not running, once the service indicator has cleared fom the display, press and hold the tripometer in until the display shows a triangle then the microfilter symbol, release the button then press and hold again untill reset shows, then release and press and hold again untill you have a sequence of lines on display, once this has happened release the button and turn off the ignition, once the ignition is switched on again the sevice indicator should have reset. you may wish to print these instructions and familiarise yourself with them before carrying out a reset. regards Mark.
