It could be the engine control module. Try to get a good used module from the junkyard and try your luck. All the best !!

I have replaced my 1993 318isa module two times myself!! GOOD LUCK!

    Before you replace the module, replace the TPS first ( make sure you get a brand new Throttle Sensor), since it is a lot cheaper.

My reverse gear has suddenly stopped working but all forward gears are fine.. Used car last night and it was fine. It's a bmw e36 328i touring


This is a transmission problem. I would take it in and have it looked at. You can save your self a few thousand dollars by getting there sooner than later.

Check compression and timing. Then check sensors(MAF, oil pressure sensor). Don't crank engine too long. Cranking engine may pour a lot of petrol into your engine oil.

When i driving bmw e36 1995 , suddenly the engine shake and broke down, and then i could not start again.Then i check fuel pressure, it's still good but not ignition in spark plug.please help me in this...


This is likely a crankshaft position sensor. This would cause no spark and no injector pulse. You would still be able to crank it and have great fuel pressure. This sensor is located behind the crank shaft pulley and is responsible for sending a signal to the computer to pulse the ignition and the injectors. Let me know if you need anything else.

Sudden loss of power while driving


Hi There, You need to check you automatic transmission fluid (ATF) levels which controls your power steering, if it is drained you need to top it up if the container is cracked, you need to change it. Next, your engine needs retuning to stem down the excessive revving.
Cheers,

Bmw e36 328i cuts out at idle,wont krank,runs rough at idle.


The battery could still be bad and if you don't have a totally good battery in the car it won't run right. Take to one of the parts stores and they can check it for you for free. Probably as simple as a battery.

Engine cuts out


BMW CUTS OUT
A few things to check.
  1. Is fuel pump delivering enough fuel.
  2. Is injectors clean. Perhaps dirt in fuel. replace fuel filter
  3. Air leakage at top air intake of manifold at ICV idle control valve. Two hoses inside this housing prone to perishing.
  4. Throttle position sensor faulty.
  5. Mass air flow sensor faulty.
  6. ICV faulty or dirty. comon fault on older e36.
Havent done it yet but ICV is easy to clean according to internet. instruction available at bmw e36 blog. All off above can be tested by yourself according to manual.

Bmw m3 e36 idle problem


sounds like an EGR valve problem. it is probably clogged. get a tech to clean it or replace it and you should be good to go. if not it could be the MAF sensor or fuel delivery problem (fuel pump or injector problems?) or CPU.it is best to scan for diagnosis.

Have you tried cleaning out your throttle body and plenum. That is a good quick fix for throttle responce. Especially the throttle body. They make some pretty good cleaning chemicals to do this.
