Bmw 316i se 2003 1.9 from time to time when i deriving my car the engine cut off and it takes me around 6 to 10 minutes to start again


I would look into your fuel relay. This is a symptom of it going out. If I am reading this right. As you are driving your vehicle all of the sudden stops and you have to coast to a stop. It then takes some time to get it to start again but turning over fine. If this is the case then what I said should be it.

My car is idling too fast, where is the idle cable,so i can alter its idle speed , i have a 1995 bmw 316i se


it's not old carbureted chevy, it's not idling high because there's too much tension on the gas pedal cable.

look at replacing/cleaning: idle control valve, maf(mass air flow sensor) vacuum leaks: intake manifold or air intake system.

I have a 1995 316i compact and it keeps misfireing, it has had the coil pack replace which seemed to solve the problem for a few miles and thn it started to misfire again. please help


i've had similar issues with a 1999 M3. normally attributed to electrical power levels this could be a low voltage issue.

do you have error codes?

make sure the power contact at the starter motor (between the alternator and the battery) is tightened.

I have also had issues with a cranshaft position sensor. but my favourite culprit of electrical issues is a wet ECU.

the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

you gain acess to it under the hood....
this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
compartment.

the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
sensors....

all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
harness.

I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
one out.

BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

My BMW seems to be leaking oil from the rear underside


the leak is most likely coming from either the differential cover gasket or the input flange that the drive shaft attaches to, this is called the pinion seal.

Radiator removal BMW 316i


hi, the two clamps that secure the radiator have a small slot on the top, if you insert a small screwdriver into the slot and use it as a pry bar you should be able to unclip the holding clamp and it then releases like a hinge.
