Why Does BMW Keep Stalling?

You're getting ready to go somewhere, then boom, your car stalls! You probably scream to yourself, "Why!?". So, you will keep trying.

Lack of Fuel This is one of the most obvious reasons your BMW won't start. If you have forgotten to fill up the tank, your car will not start unless it has fuel. However, a faulty or clogged fuel filter can be the cause too. When it can't filter out the particles from gasoline, it can get damaged or clogged.
