Also clean the icv (idle control valve) wouldn't hurt to replace the ccv or pcv valve.

1979 bmw 528i starting problem

This vehicle uses a thermotime switch for the cold start valve,located on the radiator,but you say you have fuel pressure and volume so go to the Vane airflow meter, when the airflow meter sweeps open it gives more fuel. so you need to make sure the vane air flow meter can sweep without interruption.

When the airfloe meter goes on my bmw does any

your engine management wont necesseraly come on. i had the same problem with mt 2000 e46 model. take out your air flow meter from its round casing. u will normally need a special tool to do this. but a small pair of vice grips will do. read the part number off it. contact automotive supplies on 02871 261261. i got the insert from them for my bmw cost me £36.00 when i plugged it back in the car went like new. the part info is as follows. PBT-GF30 FIVE PIN AIR FLOW METER. your origional part will be a bosch part but ur car will run just as good with this one. one from bosch will cost you £285.00. if you need any more help post me back, hope this helps. remember dealers will only rip u off......

My '83 320i is in neutral revs up fine, however when I put it in gear it feels like something is holding it back. it's not the clutch. The RPM's crawl up the tach. the engine gets louder but sounds muffled...

the airflow sensor is the box like item on the airbox tubing b4 the airbox its self there should be a solid plastic tobe/pipe between 2 rubber 1s with a wiring plug attached this is the airflow meter/sensor

Q45 airflow meter wiring.

That's not going to work. You can't install a air flow meter into a Pulsar from a Q45. Totally different animals. Air flow meters are car specific. I don't think its gonna work, but good luck with that.

1992 BMW won't stay turned on

The spark plugs shouldn't be wet, or are they wet because it won't start and they just get fuel soaked? Check the injectors.
