Question about 1986 BMW L7

1 Answer

86 bmw L7

I have an 86 L7 that started to sputter and die on me while driving a couple of weeks ago. I would pull over and it would idle or die. It would start right back up and run fine. A few minutes later or a couple of days later, you'd never know when it would happen, it would o it again. A few days ago, I took it about a half mile and it happened again, only this time, it won't run anymore. It starts runs a couple of seconds, I can rev it to 3k rpms, but it immediately sputters and dies. It's like it's running out of gas. (Yes there is gas in it) Is it the fuel filter or what?

I think your problem might be your fuel relay which is situated next to the fuse box in the engine compartment.

I have an 88 Cadillac Deville. 2 months ago I had a new fuel pump put in. It's making a whining noise and the car keeps dying and sputtering. What else could be the problem to make the pump go out?

1995 Saturn SC2 sputters


pull spark plugs check if any are excessively white or have a mineral deposit. This would indicate a head gasket problem. Also check the oil stick & cap for milky substance,also indicates head gasket. Another thing to check is pull the ignition coil off clean up the rust to get a better ground. Basic tune up changing the plugs & wires, filters ect may solve the sputtering.

Car wont start, fuel line makes sputtering noise


I have a 1986 325e with high mileage 275,000. Car starts fine and idles ok. I'm experiencing an intermittent problem where when placed in drive the car will sputter, lightly backfire, and not move forward until i pump the gas and give it time to correct whatever is not operating properly. Then it runs just fine. I'm thinking it's an air or fuel issue. Just recently tuned up the car and put some bgk44 after the problem started but still experiencing the same problem.

86 mustang 5.0 fuel injected. At cold, starts great and runs stong and firm. After driving about 10-15 mins it starts sputtering and wants to lope and die at idle. Driving, it hardly idles at a stop and...


Your fuel air mixture is wrong. Just like a choke. When it is cold it dumps more fuel in, when it warms up it is supposed to mix in more air. It does not seem to be doing this. You need to have that adjusted. In the meantime you can adjust you idle a little higher. You can do this by adjust a screw where the throttle cable sits on top of the engine.... Please give a good rating, it reaaly means a lot. Please feel free to keep in touch

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied


My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
