Hi all, So my poor 900i 16v isn't happy. Granted its been off the road for approx 10 years & doesn't seem in a great hurry to get back on it!
After rough running initially, i've replaced a whole load of parts (spark plugs, HT leads, Recon starter, replacement ECU, crank sensor, ignition coil, battery, distribution cap), today she started up, ran for 15 minutes & then died (with the engine light on - i have no code reader for it)
I'm assuming now it has to be a fueling issue, injectors, pump etc???? Am i on the right track or would anyone have any other ideas?
Cheers all.

Have you checked the fuel pressure? A pump that has stood for many years may be struggling, especially if there is a rubber boot at the fuel pickup, as they often decay and gum things up. (What year is your 900i?)

Have you put 12v across the pump to see if it runs (post the engine dying, as clearly it must have been working before)
