Check gig flexi hose between air mass meter and engine, it has a tendency to split, also try disconnecting air mass meter plug, if it runs better without it mass meter may be faulty, try replacing it with a known good one

hot engine, or cold, or both

bad TPS.
low fuel pressure

is the check engine light on, key, then goes out driving? does it?
CEL lamp. is first.
then 2nd is a FULL OBD2 scan of the PCM. look for problems.
i look at live data. and know what to expect, but most folks don't.
we watch all sensors, and look for factory only DTC errors.
the sensor are easy to monitor.
as is LTFT and 02 ops.

I have a 318i 1992 bmw and i can get reverse when the engine is cold but when the engine is hot i have to rev the car to 2500 + revs before it will go into reverse. please advise

When was last time trans filter & fluid was changed? Should be done every 30k/3 years. Hopefully you didn't damage trans by "revving" I'd start there, and when you have trans pan off, inspect magnet in pan for metal shavings.

BMW 318i 1999 model, air con not working


I had this problem before. There could be several reason.

1-Your air conditionner filter could be soo old and dirty, that you don"t get that good air condition.

2-Your air cond compressor could be giving low pression and so, no cool air.

3- You could be having a leak somewhere and so you're loosing gaz after it's filled.

4- Check also the fuse box. Seee if the AC fuse is not burnt.

thanx and don't hesitate to come back to me
