you could put the pickup on a cylinder pressure test and see if you have a bad valve causing the engine to pop.
you could have a bad wire or spark plug.
the timming chain could of went off a cog on the timming sprokets causing to pop.
gettin to much gas could cause it to.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump located on an 88 bmw 750il

I've worked on quite a few beemers & they all had 2 pumps. The main is in the gas tank & the auxillary is under the car usually on the passenger side. I'm not 100% positive since all the ones I've worked on were the 3 & 6 series. Find the gas tank, should be under the trunk,I've seen them in different spots believe it or not. There should be an access panel in the trunk or under the back seat to the main fuel pump. Check it for power with the key on. Since it's not running, you may need a second person to cycle the key on & off. The relay will only power the pump for 5 sec or without starting. Do the same test for the secondary pump. I think you'll find the main one is toast. The other one hardly ever goes bad.

SOURCE: We're is the throttle body on a BMW 318i early

Generally speaking, the throttle body takes the place of the carb, so it would be on top of the intake manifold.

Clean the throttle body really good.
In your case, check to see of the throttle butterfly (plate) is obstructed and then adjust the cable at the throttle body end per your manual specs. The adjustment is fairly simple. Otherwise.... I think it is getting to be new throttle body time.

A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.
