are you changing the strut cartridge or the whole spring unit? if you are installing the whole unit, spring and all you will need no special tools, if not you will need a spring compressor

Sounds like a Temperature sensor is malfunctioning, or maybe the o2 sensor/lambda sensor. get a multimeter and check the sensors around the engine for open circuits.
Its most likely (from exp) that it is a Temp Sensor.
There are two heat sensors, one for drivers information (connected to the dashboard) and one to tell the ECU what settings to run the engine with.
Its not the fuel pump.
That would result in fuel starvation.
This soulnds like the ecu is trying to compensate for a crazy value given by the temp sender.

You can't use a tool to pull codes from an '87 BMW 325(e). You have the 2.7 liter and your DME, or computer is a Motronic. If you had a 325i, then a tool could read the codes because the computer was upgraded that year to a Motronic 1.1 system with a round plug in under the screw cap on the driver's side under the hood. The only tool you can buy is the one for resetting the service interval light and resetting the oil change light. To answer your question about going about finding your driveability problem would be to get a BMW Bentley Manual. This manual shows you how to use a standard voltmeter to check everything from your computer plug in. Your computer is located above the glovebox.
