I am having a similar problem with my 93 316i. engine wont rev above 3500. i was quite sure it was a clogged fuel filter but changed it today and probem is still there. could it be that some dirt has gone on to choke the injectors or the fuel regulator at injector manifold? it could be the airflow gate or MAF sensor malfunctioning.will check it today. quite sure it is not jumped timing as the engine is quite good below 3500.

This could possibly be a problem with your air flow meter (MAF sensor) these vehicle have a vane type air flow meter which can cause lots of problems. You can check it with a multimeter (sorry not sure which pins to probe) or send to your local auto electrician for testing. Cheers tyron

A few things to check.
  1. Is fuel pump delivering enough fuel.
  2. Is injectors clean. Perhaps dirt in fuel. replace fuel filter
  3. Air leakage at top air intake of manifold at ICV idle control valve. Two hoses inside this housing prone to perishing.
  4. Throttle position sensor faulty.
  5. Mass air flow sensor faulty.
  6. ICV faulty or dirty. comon fault on older e36.
Havent done it yet but ICV is easy to clean according to internet. instruction available at bmw e36 blog. All off above can be tested by yourself according to manual.

Hi I'm looking for cylinder head torque settings for a 1992 BMW 316/318 e36


BMW cylinder torque setting all models

According to my service manual as follows.

Cyl head to engine block (torx e12 M10 bolts)

Stage 1 30nm (22 ft – lb)
Stage 2 + 90 degrees
Stage 3 + 90 degrees

Cyl head to lower timing chain cover 10nm (89in – lb)

The tightening sequence is from inside to outside crossover as normal. Loosening sequence is from outside to inside crossover. Remember to set torque wrench at low setting and work gradually up through the whole sequence until you get the desired torque.

Banging noise from rear of bmw 316 e36


It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.

Hi

It sounds as though you either have a faulty O2 sensor, or there is a fuel pressure issue, which from your description, could be due to a worn fuel pump.

If the car performs ok under full acceleration, but plays up at either part throttle or no throttle, then you may well have a faulty O2 sensor.

Very best regards
