well

this has been my summer ever since i bought my e30

yay i fixed it!!!
WIGGITY WHACK something else goes wrong.
repeat this about 4-5 times

well
it has happened again

after labout 4 days of replacing my old clutch cylinder with a new one( master not slave) and putting in bosch plat 2 pronged spark pplugs my car doesnt want to start. today i did an oil change, and after the car started fine perfect i drove downt he road and back.

and maybe an hour or 2 after i had to move the cars and when i turned my ignition, the motor did not want to turn over!

i swear my balls broke *even more* when this happened today! i pulled out the plugs and found that it was wet of gas, so i burned it off with a lighter and put them back in and it still wouldnt turn over.

so i took the spark plug connecter, put a screw driver in it and placed the driver on a piece of metal on the car, and turned the ignition to see if there is any spark. and of course there was no spark. i did the same this with the spark plug in the connecter this time not housed in the motor...still no spark.

so with what little experience i have with cars *im really a newb at cars for that matter, really especially electrical shit* im guessing the obvious...no current flow is getting to the plugs.

now what could possibly be the problem folks/? thanks

Could be your computer, or simply a bad ground.
If you turned it over and flooded it, beware.... you will flood the cylinders with gas, it will mix with your oil, and you will start to wear your rings, get blow by and your engine will be toast.
Change your oil before you start driving it !!!!!!!!

By the way, platinum plugs will cause issues - stick with OE Bosch.

Its very good that you are making an effort, but when it takes 4 days to change a slave and plugs, i think its time to bring the car to a shop. Electrical problems can be SO many, you will spend weeks diagnosting it. Save youreself the headaches, bring it to Bimmersport and get it done...*wave*

seei would do that but i cannot

because
a) car still not legal, so i cant get it over to BMWSport,
b) making this a learning experience

and the maser clutch cylinder took me less than 1 day, and the plugs took me 10 mins. i meant 4 days AFTER i did all that shit haha

but ya if alllll comes to all....ill forfit and get this done professionaly....but just not yet/1
