Default Pain in the B..TT No-Start issue

I have a no-start issue on my 2004 BMW 330i. Every fuse I have checked is good the fuel Pump is priming and running (new fuel pump, new fuel pump relay, new fuel filter), the rpm gauge registers 200 rpm while cranking, and also since the car sat for 3 months, I added a bit of oil to the cylinders. I did replace the crank sensor a while back 9 months but I did buy a new one after that I have no others ideas. I have not been beat by this car and do not intend to break the streak.

Also no spark.

I am beginning to suspect the DME but do not have the appropriate reader that can try and talk to the DME. Does someone out there one of these for a BMW?

Help appreciated and help me keep my string of beating the BMW Gods alive.

crank or cam sensor typical cause of no spark. Should be able to pick that up with a obd2 tool though. I'll see if I can find resistance values.

No codes on the OBD2 reader but not sure what that means. The last time the crank senor went bad, no codes either. The camshaft sensors are about 4 years old so no issue with getting a set and replacing.

I have had intermittent stalls / No Start and have had it tow 2 in the last few years. This is the first time I got a good hard kill on this.

"If you're having butt pain, please give my office a call and we'll work you in." Let me guess, a standard joke for your industry?
