1998 BMW 740iL Question: Camshaft position sensor

Sometimes when i start my car up she will start but like after two seconds it will cut off. i would have to start it up about two to three times before its able to drive without cutting off. does this sound lik the camshaft sensor or something else??? -
Answer 1
Sounds to me more like an Idle Air Control problem, but a diagnosis will 100% have to be performed. We charge about 100$, the range is 75-150 for a BMW usually. MAKE SURE YOU GET A PRO!!! -
Answer 2
sounds like a camshaft position sensor, the car cannot pick up the proper timing you can find it at your local auto parts store I think it was $140 and my car instantly ran correctly the cam positioning sensor even caused my cruise control not to work you can put it in yourself in 20min -
