Which sign can show the danger of engine block damage

The airbag and the alternator may have been caused by a drive belt failing on the engine, this would cause an overheat, I hope you did not drive it very far as this engine can be ruined by excessive overheating. Look under the hood and see if the drive belt is on the engine.

Bmw 320i timing

There is no adjustment for the timing of the ignition. It is totally controlled by the computer. For the cams you need a little jig to position the cams when you are working on the timing chain

Jerking and speed getting down rapidly

You will need to connect the vehicle to the manufacturers software i think for this problem ,although my first suspect is a coil pack or something along these lines but in cases like this i would need to drive the car to get any idea whats wrong

L have a 2000 BMW 320i e46 which started giving me problems this morning.Every time l get to a stop sign or a robot my car is stalling and then cuts off.

General advice:
Radio interference.
Ceck alternator recharge rate.
Very low on details,u mean if in a parking lot it will iddle fine?If breaking hard won't stall?If easy break engage won't cut?
Fuel/Fuel line/fuel pump related issues.
Air mass (MAF) sensor related.
U must track the problem,more details.
Cheers,share if figured out.

I have just bought a bmw car 320i 1993, i see the airbag signal is red. I don't know to turn off. Please advice me how to fix it. Thanks!

You need a scanner that plugs into the round plug under the hood. It will read out the error code and reset he light. Peake makes a tool that does this. I presume that there are other tools as well.
Any shop that works on BMWs will have such a scanner.
The two most common problems are: 1) Someone jambed the seat belt tab into the buckle crookedly while the key was on.. 2) Something heavy bounced on the passenger seat occupant sensor while the key was on.
95% of the time on an e36, nothing is really wrong, so you just reset the light and keep driving. The dealer, of course, will want to sell you a new seat belt buckle or other part. On my first e36, I got two new driver side seat belt buckles under warranty before I figured out that there was nothing really wrong with the seat belt buckles.

How hard is it to change a cambelt on a bmw 320i e30?

You said E30, 320i correct? Your engine is a 2.0L 4 Cylinder engine? If so it does not have a timing belt, it has a chain, upper and lower gears and two chain slides. To change the timing chain and slide set is not easy if you have never done one, neither is the belt on the 6 cylinder engines. I recommend a reputable BMW shop.
