Check that your ICV ( idle control Valve) is actually alive. This is what used to happen with mine. It is located right below the throttle flap, you will see a hose going to it. Quick fix: adjust the throttle cable a tiny bit, so you have more revs and engine doesn't shut off easily. Wish you all the best!

BMW 318i starts fine but once you drive it for 5 minutes switch it off, it wont start again.


sounds like a engine sensor i'd guess at the crank sensor but to be sure you would need to get the OBD codes read , this will give the exact fault so wont waste money trying sensor(s) on a hit an miss basis,you can buy a code reader online not expensive just make sure it covers your vehicle make then you have a valuable diag equipment for future use

My 2002 BMW 318i e46 oil pressure light goes off with start up and comes back on after a few seconds and stays on for 90 seconds -can any body help please( the car has done 350000 km


The VERY 1ST thing you need done here is to have a mechanical test gauge hooked up to the engine and verify the oil pressure is ok, then if it is replace the oil pressure sending unit on the engine. Do not drive this until you are sure the pressure is good, you can quickly burn up the bearings and ruin a very expensive engine.

Accelerate Problem BMW 1992 318i


a bad camshaft position sensor or a vacuum leak. Most likely sensor. Is your check engine light on? you can test sensors with an ohmmeter to determine if a sensor is good or not. It wouldn't be bad to check and make sure your coil packs aren't bad by checking each plug for spark. You can lay one plug and wire at a time one engine so end probe of plug is fairly next to metal. Have someone crank while you watch for spark.

BMW 318i wont start engine


I would have the battery tested. When they get cold they get weak. Next I would look at the wires on the starter to see if their loose.
