You might wantto check the antifreeze in the radiator when cold and have car looked at, go to chucks or autozone to get the codes pulled to see if you have a malfunctioning cat which would cause it to get hot.

Lack of power, hesitation, climate control blowing hot air


Always check body grounds. You may have good power to the engine with a good ground still, but your body grounds control power to all else.

Bmw z3 2001 1.9 m43 engine, severe misfire at idle and through the rev range, stays the same, starting ok hot or cold, car in zimbabwe poor fuel quality but running ok before, gets infrequent use, replaced...


Make sure you dont run out of fuel, make sure 1/4 tank of gas is always there and the reason is that the fuel pump should be submerged in the gas all the time, if not then it will heat up and die.
It would also be good practic to change the fuel filter once a year, if there is no external filter then ad one in line filter for your safety.
As for the mis at idle it could be due to bent valve, burnt valve seat, vacume leak, head gasket minor leak, bad coil, shorted plug, bad gas. If the engine light is on which it should have because of the missing then I would like to know the codes.

1. I observe that within every 3 months, i need to change each side shocks absorber at the back? Do I need to change the 2 at once to avoid changing them over and over again? 2. My slow run is always...


it is alwas best to replace shocks/struts as a set per the axle. it seems that you have a high idle problem. the check engine light is probably related but what do you mean when you say that you "unplug the slow run sensor" that will turn the light on also.

Both radiator cooling fans won't turn on vehicle overheats


The fans come on only when hot or the AC is on. There are many fuses that have to be good for it to work. The fan relay should have 2 pins hot with the key on, The other 2 should be ground. with the key off one should be hot and the other can then be ground the other pins that are ground one of them is the fan. the other becomes ground when the computer turns the fans on. If you don't have a pin thats hot at the relay all the time then theres a blown fuse or even the power wire from the battery at the battery
