Question about 1992 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

I have a 1992 BMW 325i with a 6 cylinder engine. It surges while driving and the mpg gauge on the dash swings from left to right with the surges. It also dies several times when it is first started

My 1992 BMW 325i has a 6 cylinder engine. It surges while accelerating or under load. It also has to be restarted several times when it is first started in the morning. It also says ext. temp -35f on the onboard computer but I'm not sure that's related.

    Did you ever fix this problem or try a new lambda sensor. I have noticed recently that my check engine light started coming on randomly. I have not had a chance to read codes, but I am assuming lamba. When the CEL is active the surging is gone. I will try unplugging and driving in open loop to verify. But please let me know if you have any more info.

SOURCE: 2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise

It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW 325i E90 remote programming

That remote you purchased, did you remove your vehicle key from your old one and insert it into the new one? At the back of the remote there are pinch grips, pinch and pull to remove the key, you should have a plastic version of this key for your car, in the spare in the glovebox, unless it has been removed, check also in the owners manual folder, if you bought this car used it maybe in there. If you do not have the kaey that matches your car to put in the remote it will not program to the car. Hope this helps, let me know.

Cause no heat temp gauge red lined in


sounds like the thermostat is stuck shut..unless the head gasket is blown somewhere.. it will pump the antifreeze level down to form an air pocket.. this will cause overheating constantly check each cylinder for even compression..the lowest reading will most likely be the blown cylinder..

How to set the clock on a 2000 BMW 325i


Hi, on your signal stalk (left side), see the "BC" button?

Push this BC button repeatedly, and you will notice the display inside your dash go from:

Time-Temperature-MPG-Range-Ave speed-(and back to)Time.

Notice there're also 2 buttons (stalks) sticking out from your dash.

ONLY while the display is showing the TIME (not anything else), TURN and HOLD the right button inside the dash. You will find that the time will adjust on both your dash and your radio display. It will move faster as you keep holding on.

You may also switch from 24hr format to AM/PM format by pushing the right button instead of turning it.
