    I have the same problem with my 1997 328i. It won't accelerate initially or when going up a hill. Once I am able to get the speed up it runs fine.

    I have the same issue with my 1986 325e manual coupe, the vehicle hesitates and then suddenly surges once the revs slowly climbs above 2700 rpm.
    The the problem tends to disappear once the car has been running for more than 5 minutes. problem exists on both hot or cold start-up running.

Cant find the location of obd code reader connector on 1985 bmw 325e

Are you trying to connect a code reader or your phone to your car? You probably mean OBD-II, which didn't come along until several years after 1985.

Ran out of gas 325e bmw turns over great but won't start

replace fuel pump. you never run out of gas in a BMW...what's wrong with you? It breaks the fuel pump. It's against the BMW code to sit there on the side of the road waiting for bubba and his towtruck and red can of gas. BMW.....come on. you're supposed to have enough money to buy gas. Anyway, the penalty for going against the bmw code of looking like Jed Clampett on the side of the road for gas is: A broken fuel pump.

My 325E BMW is not starting

check to see if the raised pin on the fly wheel has has broke off. to do that you, take out the position sensor on the bell housing & look on the flywheel to see if it is there. your have to manually turn the engine whale somebody else looks to see if the pin is still there. if it is not. where it is suppose to be, just put a sheet metal screw in its place. by taking a long drill bit and drilling it out to put the screw. try and see if that's the problem
