Question about 1996 BMW 318

1 Answer

Car won't stay running when started. When coming home on highway, the 'check engine' light came on and when I let off the gas, it went off. 15 min. or so later it came back on, and when I let off the gas, it went off again. When I got home, I restarted it and it sputtered and stalled out. Now it doesn't seem to waqnt to start at all.

Try revving it to around 4,000 PRM and see if the CEL pops off. If it does I would say it is a vaccum leak & to check your intake boot & the little hose that connects to it right near the throttle body.

My ti would do the same, but if I held a idle myself it would run pretty rough.

It sounds like an alternator, yet you say the fan still worked after you disconnected the battery? And the car was still running? Or the car died out. Sorry, need some more details on this one.

Flashing check engine light


The check engine light is telling the driver the computer has a problem with something that can affect performance or emissions.
The problem is serious when the light is flashing.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

Believe your fuel pump is bad when you first turn on your ignition (don't try to start car) do you hear a clicking or humming noise? If not you fuel pump may not be working also check fuel pump fuse and relay check owners manual for locations.

You may want to check the speed sensor of the car. IT should be located in between the engine and the transmission. At high speeds if the ecu would not get any feedback from the sensor it would normally light up the check engine light.
