Question about 2001 BMW 325

2 Answers

Cold engine Engine is 325i, year 1988. When starting engine from cold it fires first time. Problem is that when driving it kicks as if it has no petrol in car. When driving hard it gets a lot more jerky. When engine worms up it drives smooth with no jerkiness at all. It also happens straight after a full service. Im wondering if it's injectors or other fuel problems. Thanks TAS.

This is a classic fuel distribution distributor issue, clean the throttle plate, you may also have to adjust the fuel trim.

Engine starts on 3 cyl when cold loading up engine cyl after warm engine will fire all 4 cyl what is the issue


Find out which cylinder is not firing. Before it starts firing pull the plug and see if it is wet. If it is I would say that the injector was stuck open.

Fan doesn't run while in idle and begins to over heat until I start driving agin then it cools back down to normal. Also the fan runs when engine is off and drains the battery.


The fan is only supposed to come on when there is excess heat .. in normal driving conditions it doesn't start. When you start your car in the morning the fan won't come on because the engine is cold.

With a hot engine - and it depends how hot the engine is - the fan will only kick in to prevent overheating. In heavy slow moving traffic or a traffic jam, the fan will kick in if needed.

The air flow through the radiator is usually sufficient -in normal driving conditions - to cool the engine.

When you park up and the car has a hot engine, the fan will kick in. This is perfectly normal. It is caused by a surge of hot coolant triggering the fan sensor. Perfectly normal.

The fan then should cut out after a while .. maybe 2-3 minutes at the most. If the fan runs continuously that suggests a fault in the temperature sensor switch.

Next time - wait by the car and see how long it takes for the fan to quit after you have parked up. It should stop of its own accord after a couple of minutes.

If the fan cuts off after a short while, and your battery is becoming drained, that's probably a battery or alternator fault.

Remember: when you start the car the fan won't kick in at idle speed because the engine is COLD, and there is no reason for the fan to start up ..
The fan WILL kick in for a couple of minutes after you have parked the vehicle and the engine is hot

Ensure your spark plugs,wires (ignition coil and spark) and your filters (air and fuel) are within 2 years of installation It's erratic at 800 rpm as the engine is cold and they like the 2200 range for 3 minutes before they kick down on their own. Press the pedal twice before inserting your key. The owners manual states depending on the outside temperature, the engine will require more priming. Update if possible.
