It sounds as though you either have a faulty O2 sensor, or there is a fuel pressure issue, which from your description, could be due to a worn fuel pump.

If the car performs ok under full acceleration, but plays up at either part throttle or no throttle, then you may well have a faulty O2 sensor.

Very best regards

What is the problem with a Diesel BMW that will not start when hot.

I would suspect vapor lock. The fuel rails are getting hot and it turns the diesel into a vapor instead of a liquid. A liquid is what is needed to go into the injectors. Try insulating all of the fuel lines with the shiny side out to reflect heat back to the engine.

under ignition system, to test any, under to this system need to have a good battery. it must read under the specification or within the range of a battery to say you have a good battery.
cold weather drains the charge of a battery.

I have a bmw 320i and when i start it its fine but only got to drive for 10 mins and it overheats

The first thing to do would be to check the coolant level,then make sure the fan clutch locks up when it gets hot,if coolant is full then start the car and run it until it starts running hot then feel both radiator hoses and see if both top and bottom hoses are hot this will tell you if tstat is opening, if only the top is hot then start with a thermostant, also make sure all fan belts are on and not very loose, i've found some of these older bmw's to have bad head gaskets that make them run hot,start with the test ,and check level first.

Heya, i got a E36 320i auto coupe. its not overheating standing, but its red hot after driving it a mile

this sounds like a water blockage, take off the water hose that goes to the engine block, start the engine, and see if there is water flow going to engine...if this is the problem, then you need to buy an engine flush fluid, and flush out your engine....please be carefull, as the E36 320i, has an aluminium head, and is easily warped by heat

check and see if you get water/coolant circulates when you have the cap off (only check from cold start) the original water pump came with a plastic impeller and tends to strip on the shaft also check your thermostat before replacing water pump.
