Question about 2002 BMW Z3
I have 2002 z3 2.5 lt bmw. It has a cold air intake on it and it has some sort of air flow sensor in it (someone cut a hole in the intake and mounted the air sensor through the top of it. As soon as I plug into the sensor, the car would die. Now the car will start, but it dies (with the sensor not plugged in)...fyi, that's the way it was working before, I drove it for a couple of days that way, it never worked perfect but it did work. Like I said, the sensor was not plugged in. Now the only way it will keep running is when I plug it in.....but as soon as I put it in gear it dies. The guy I bought it from stated it should have a master air flow sensor........could this be the problem???? thanks .....Kevin
Having driven many BMW's for the last 15 years, my advice is to remove the cold intake and go back to the factory original, the car runs alot smoother and the fuel economy is much better. the chapest way of doing this is to buy a second hand one from ebay etc as well as buying the original MAF sensor.
Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.
