Bmw m62 engine shurreding and trying to cut off?

It sounds like an inlet manifold seal. Try to rev the engine up to about 1500 revs, if it runs ok, then it's either that or your air-flow mass meter

Wont start 1995 bmw 525. just stopped on me pushed out of road day later it started and ran fine for 15 min. now it wont start unless it sits for a few days and is cool outside. when it starts last few...

next time it wont start, spray some starter fluid into the air intake on the engine, if it fires then you have spark, if not.....prolly a spark issue.

Engine cuts out

A few things to check.
  1. Is fuel pump delivering enough fuel.
  2. Is injectors clean. Perhaps dirt in fuel. replace fuel filter
  3. Air leakage at top air intake of manifold at ICV idle control valve. Two hoses inside this housing prone to perishing.
  4. Throttle position sensor faulty.
  5. Mass air flow sensor faulty.
  6. ICV faulty or dirty. comon fault on older e36.
Havent done it yet but ICV is easy to clean according to internet. instruction available at bmw e36 blog. All off above can be tested by yourself according to manual.

N Reg 1995 BMW 316I. Suspected fuel pump problem

Not a problem, the fuel pump is in the rear passenger side (under the back seat) pop out the seat held by too clips onto the the rear seat, take out the sound deadining pad, undo the big black cover and get water pump pliers too undo the white cover lift out the pump, you should check the fuel gauge to see how much fuel is in the tank, no need to drain as long as you dont want petrol on your hands.
When you take the pump out, the most common problem is the thin Brown wire snaps off the sender unit, it buzzes but wont start. It should be around £30 for a good second hand pump.

I hope this helps.
