Check to see if you are getting fire to the plugs easy way to check is to pull a plug wire place a screw driver in the wire end that goes over the plug do not touch any metal with your hands hold it with the screw driver. have someone turn car over and hold metal end of screw driver to metal on car if u see spark then your getting spark to the plugs second check the fuel delivery on most cars on the fuel rail u will see a bleeder valve that will have a valve stem cap on it.(looks like a valve you would put air in) after turning the over push in the stem with small tool. if fuel squirts out then u have fuel coming to the rail and can rule out the fuel pump. no squirt then your fuel pump may be out GL

SOURCE: where is the engine filter

If I recall correctly, its at the trailing end of the engine and gets unscrewed from below. If you want to replace it don't forget the light coating of oil to seal the seal!

318 bmw dolphin shape idles eraticly checked 3 and 4 plugs looks very wet ive allso checked injectors look like its working fine is there a way to check the air flow meter


Check coolant temp sensor (not the sender for the dash indicator but the one that talks to the ECU). These fail often and will tell the ECU wrong temperature data such that the fuel mix can be way off. They usually do not cause check engine light to be on. This can be tested with ohm meter if you have a temp chart with readings. Easy fix.

ECUs generally cannot be repaired. You will need to replace the ECU eventually it will simply fail and the car will not start.
