3. At low temperature of external air squeeze out and hold pressed a coupling pedal.

Cars with the petrol engine
Without pressing an accelerator pedal, start the engine.

It is not necessary to be limited to too short-term inclusion of a starter, but also it is impossible to hold its 20 seconds included more long. As soon as the engine will be got, at once release a key.

Do not warm up the engine idling, and at once begin movement at moderate turns.

BMW 535i, 540i:
Your BMW is equipped with system of comfortable start-up of the engine. It is enough to you to turn only the ignition key in situation 3 (starter inclusion) and at once to release it.

The starter some time works in an automatic mode and is switched off as automatically as soon as the engine will be got.

At insufficient tension of the accumulator automatic start-up of the engine is not made and not disconnected. The engine in this case can be got from the accumulator of other car (address to engine Start from the auxiliary power supply).

If the engine (cold or peregrety) is not got from the first, it is necessary to operate as follows:
 • In order to avoid a zabryzgivaniye of spark plugs to repeat attempt of start-up it is possible after a short-term pause.
 • At start-up of the engine hold a pedal of an accelerator pressed approximately to a half of its course.

Start-up of the cold engine at low temperatures (below - 15°С) and at big heights (more than 1000 m over sea height):
 • In the first attempt to get the engine hold a starter included slightly more long usual (about 10 seconds).
 • A pedal of an accelerator hold pressed approximately to a half of its course.

If you have to get often the engine at low temperatures and at big heights, replace oil in the engine with viscosity oil 5W-H.

Cars with the diesel engine

At the cold engine:
 • The ignition key should be in situation 2 until the control lamp of preheat or the corresponding inscription on the display will go out.
 • Start the engine.

At the lowest temperatures of external air it is possible to hold a starter 40 seconds included not more long.

At the warm engine:
 • If the control lamp of preheat does not burn, at once get the engine.

The pressing of a pedal of an accelerator does not influence process of start-up of the engine.

Do not warm up the engine idling, and at once begin movement at moderate turns.

Air removal from a power supply system of the diesel engine: if the fuel tank is empty, as a rule, air removals from a power supply system it is not required.

If nevertheless at start-up of the engine there will be problems:
 • Hold a starter included during about 20 seconds.

Never allow operation of the engine in the closed rooms. The fulfilled gases contain colourless and not having a smell, but very poisonous oxide of carbon. Inhalation of exhaust gases is unhealthy and can cause loss of consciousness and lead to a deadly outcome.
