Hi, I too am having a similar problem with my 98 316i. Whist driving for the past two weeks the car has been a little slugish accelerating. A few days ago the car just lost all power and I was not able to restart it. Could this be the same problem? And what should I do?

Re: bmw 316 e36
Check the induction kit, where the big black rubber hoses pipes connect to air filter box and inlet fuel manifold ?? i cant remmber wat is called (sorry),if is spilt that the reason u will lose the power ,if u dont find anything spilt ,is could be possile spark plugs lead need replacing
I am having a similar problem with my 93 316i. engine wont rev
above 3500. i was quite sure it was a clogged fuel filter but
changed it today and probem is still there. could it be that some dirt
has gone on to choke the injectors or the fuel regulator at injector
manifold? it could be the airflow gate or MAF sensor
malfunctioning.will check it today. quite sure it is not jumped timing
as the engine is quite good below 3500.
This could possibly be a problem with your air flow meter (MAF sensor) these vehicle have a vane type air flow meter which can cause lots of problems. You can check it with a multimeter (sorry not sure which pins to probe) or send to your local auto electrician for testing. Cheers tyron

The tightening sequence is from inside to outside crossover as normal. Loosening sequence is from outside to inside crossover. Remember to set torque wrench at low setting and work gradually up through the whole sequence until you get the desired torque.
It could be your subframe as well big problem with E36's. Also you can check your Rear Shock Mounts in the trunk by removing the carpet, they are under the speakers. Also check your brake pads, the little shim could have fallen off causing your brake pad to rattle over bumps. And check all your heat shields.
