Question about 1994 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

Caddiladic Converter Hi, recently having problems in my 94 320i where it jolts and the revs go up and down. Have taken battery out and put it back in and it worked fine. Happens every now and then. My mechanic advised it may be this Caddildic Converter, blocked and causing it to lose power. Can you advise if this can be done at home with welding gear etc

The reason the car jolts is because off the revs going up and down,but this not the problem,my main suspect in this case would be dirty or blocked injectors.The first thing buy a can of fuel cleaner and run it through your system you will be surprised,The other simple item that will cause this is an clogged air filter.adrian

2006 Pt Crusier P068a code is all im getting with key dance.. dont know what that means but my battery light is on and car boggs down when i give it gas. thinking catyalic converter?? any help please

Hi,maybe the best place to start is the alternater,if the red light is on and when you try to rev up the engine it gos to die,one other check is to put a multymetre on the battery it should be around 12v but when you rev up the engine it should go to about 14v,so try reving if it stays the same or gose lower the could be alternater.
all the best

My 96 ford taurus revs high when starting then works it way from 1500 or more down to 800 but fluctuates from 800 to a little over 1000. When putting car in rverse or drive from park engine revs up to...

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

Reving problems

The high rev sounds like a vaccumm problem. What year is the vehicle? If its
newer than 1995 it more than likely has a lot of vaccumm operated parts. I would check for leaks and get that out of the way.

My car has no power and i recently had the catylic converter taken off. does this make the car somewhat **** when pressing the gas or what else could it be. my montecarlo has 105k miles

You must put the catalytic converter back on your car because you now don't have any compression and that is why you have no power. Also it is federally mandated that your car have a catalytic converter. Your Chevrolet dealer may have to put one on for free because of the dealer being required to replace certain emissions-related components depending upon your state.

Idle up and down to 1500 rpm at first start when cold

Have you by any chance taken a multimeter & tested your TP (throttle position) sensor ? If you think you might know how, let me know & we'll guide you through it. If not, at least take wiring plug off & clean both plug & TP sensor contacts with contact cleaner, and inspect for any corrosion while doing it. When putting plug back on, use a little di-electric grease in the connection. Have you sprayed your throttle body & throttle plate good with throttle body cleaner recently?
