SOURCE: i have a bmw 318 ci coupe that idles up and down

1) Check and make sure that the rubber intake pipe and vacuum hose are not leaking.

2) If the symptom persists, check and thoroughly clean the throttle with a good solvent.

3) Then, check if the fuel return valve is NOT leaking. (remove the hose and smell for gas odor) .If you smell gas, replace the valve in no time.

4) If you follow steps 1 to 3 and the problem lingers, try replacing the TPS. (Throttle Sensor)

Good Luck!!

Do grade me if it helps.

SOURCE: Location of oil filter on BMW 323i coupe '99 reg

Both E36 and E46 models have oil filter under the hood, towards the front of the block. You will need a special socket to remove the oil filter cap and once it's out, can replace the filter. Make sure to replace the gasket on oil filter cap, it should come in oil filter kit you bought.

SOURCE: i just bought a bmw 318 ti compact , r reg and

I had the same problem with a 97 318ti, it kept blowing the pvc valves and purging all my coolent. After several misdiagnoses we discovered that it was a small fan that sits inside the motor. In my case the fan had to be replaced and permanently engaged. Its an easy fix but it cost me a radiator, some very expensive pvc, and a lot of pain in the ***.

I don't know that this will work, but try using the key and opening the door at the same time, both sides, this procedure works for locked doors and a dead battery, hope this helps, let me know.

00 318ci coupe

depending on how the car is set, the unlock may have to be depressed twice to unlock the passenger door. i'm guessing you have already tried this? if not give it a shot.

if that didn't fix it, then sit in the car and hit the unlock button twice and see if you hear the passenger door unlock/lock mechanism trying to unlock the door. if you can hear it trying to pop the lock, then it may be an issue with the cold. my '99 323 was this way in the cold. if you can't hear it trying to pop the lock, then the module in that door is bad.

also when was the last time BMW replaced the battery in that key?

good luck.
