Hi
my car intermitently cuts out when coming to a halt at traffic lights for instance. Then when trying to start up takes a few turns of the key and is sluggish when moving off. Embarrassing!!

The 3 series suffer badly from camshaft sensors and on your vehicle crankshaft too. Replace all three sensors and your problems are gone. You will notice that the old sensors have a step in them while the new modified ones dont, good luck

Hi David,

Sounds very suspicious of a failing alternator. BMW alternators are notorious for failing when hot. I would high recommend having the alternator checked while hot..ie after a long test drive. Usually the voltage regulators fail, but I would recommend the entire alternator. Both Bosch and Valeo brands are usually interchangeable. I would recommend the cheaper price of the 2. It could save you a few hundred dollars.

Hey, sounds like a vacum leak - common on those engines. when engine is on idle open boonet and lissten out for any whoosing noises near the rear of engine. There is a breather there that can be changed ( black round ) or check the pipes that connect to it coming from rocker cover for damage.

Hello.

In the first instance. Unhook the air flow sensor and see if this make a difference. If it does your Mass Air flow sensor needs cleaning or replacing.

Try changing your airfilter and Spark plugs. I would also use some heavy duty injuctor cleaner in the fuel.

Motor cutting 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.
