    Hi there, my318i tourer has a similar problem but ticks over perfectly whilst cold.If i switch off and then start up again it ticks over realy badly sometimes stalling. Seems to run fine when driving but reverts to a lumpy tickover at lights etc. ps its automatic.

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.

Why bmw 2006 318 wont turn over

no gas, weak battery, crankshaft or camshaft sensor is bad, fuel pump bad, fuel pump relay or fuse is bad, haven't pushed clutch down far enough(rug caught underneath), fuel filter clogged, ignition coils bad. You need to give a hint as to what you have tried. Does it crank but not start/ Does it simply click(starter) and not crank/

Seat height adjustment

There should be a set of levers on the right hand side (left hand if you are on the left). one of these will move the seat back and forth, one will raise and lower and one will move the seat back.
Some of these rise and fall levers are a "pump action style" where you push down to get the level or pull up.
Other type will raise the seat fully either up or down. Its on a cam.
I have had these seize before and have had to replace the mechanism.

I have 1996 316i coupe with 140000 miles on the clock, when i brake when slowing the car down the steering wheel starts shaking pretty bad, what could the problem be, would be much obliged if u could help,...

The problem is most likely the warping/runnout on the front brake discs.
At 140,000 mileage the disc rotors would be getting a bit thin and need replacing.
Check front wheel bearings while your there.
