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)
Do grade me if it helps.

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.

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 ***.
