Question about BMW 318i
Your alternator might be shot and is no longer charging the battery or running the computers, etc.. If you can borrow a good battery, try it on your BMW. If the car runs better, then I'd say it's your alternator. Of course, you might need a new battery too.

It sounds like to me you are having problems with your fuel injectors. In situations like these there are soooooo many different variables and possible problems, but the fact that the car is backfiring makes me believe that you are getting too much fuel in because that is what makes are car backfire. When fuel makes it to the cat converter or muffler it will burn there and cause the backfire. My suggestion would be to start the process of elimination with a good fuel injector cleaner. The only one that recommend is called Greased Lightening and can be purchased at Napa and O'Reilley auto parts. If you don't have one of these near you I would go with Techron. Let me know if I can help you with anything else. Thanks for letting me help you with your problem and I would appreciate an honest rating on the help that I gave you. Thanks for using FixYa!
