Question about 1997 BMW 318

1 Answer

318i Touring - irregular 'choking' problem

The car started choking a few months ago and after ruling out bad fuel I have since changed the plugs, the Lambda sensor and the airflow meter but all to no avail. Its now getting serious as it caught me in the fast lane of the motorway the other day dropping me from 80 to 50 in an instant - scary. My only other thought is a problem with the cat ? Any ideas ?

where did you go? if you went through really high altitudes the oxygen levels change and could have fouled your plugs. sometimes the auto makers tune the vehicles different in different geographical locations.

It could be the temp sensor switch. Fuel injected engines (most GM models) use the temp sensor as the choke sensor as well. I had a Buick that did the same thing and replaced temp sensor and worked fine thereafter.

Got fuel pressure but no spark


Sounds like the plugs have fouled due to the bad gas, replace the spark plugs

Try the idle air control valve it is located near the throttle body it has a four wire plug and has two small hoses attached to it this is a small stepper motor that controls the amount of air on start up this part will cost about $200 from a popular auto parts store.
