SOURCE: hi, i have a 1995 318 tds, with poor acceleration and power

yea a wet ecu...
read below

the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

you gain acess to it under the hood....
this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
compartment.

the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
sensors....

all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
harness.

I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
one out.

BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

easy fix man, i spent ages at this one. undo the plastic cover,remove piece at back of the ignition which has little grub screws in it. Fiddle with the part extruding from end of ignition and it will 'pop back'. your ignition will work away grand ...for a year or so till it happens again

Bmw 1997 tds compact slow on acceleration using a lot of diesel any cure put new heater plugs in but this was because of the slow start second gear there is no power on hills


Depending on your mileage, you may need to refurbish your turbo as its on its way out if your getting very low power or you can remap. I have got mine remapped to 120 bhp and mpg/torque is awsome.
