E87 116i struggling to start

Post by nicky » Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:47 pm

Hi guys.

I have a BMW E87 1 series 116i petrol (2008). Around 54k miles.

I'm having trouble starting the car when the weather is slightly colder (around 6 degree Celsius). I hit the start button and it starts to turn over for about 10-15 seconds, then starts to chug(?) (as if its coming to life) for a few seconds before starting up.

It seems to be worse in colder weather.

What could cause this kind of behaviour? I would expect it to start almost immediately...


Thanks guys.
