Comment 1
I had the same problem with the SES light coming on, failing a smoke check, and then the car would not start after I filled up with gas. I took it to a station and will get a possible problem result later today. They were thinking possible fuel pump failure. could that be the problem also, or just a system leak, or cracked intake hose near the engine? -
Answer 2
have a smoke test done to look for vac leaks but could be a bad mass air flow also -
Answer 3
Just had the same problem with my 2004 BMW 325i. Service Engine Soon was on as well. Mechanic said everything seemed fine but then found that a hose (intake) was cracked near engine. Replace hose for$15 and $86 for the time. Runs great now. SES light off. Codes off. -
