91 850i, it won`t stay running.
 
I have a 91 850i, before I had this problem it ran fine expect it was missing off and on
what I found was 2 plug wires were bad, so I upgraded all the wires and clean the
throttlebodies. Now I started the engine and the problem I`m having is it won`t stay,
it will run for a fue seconds then stall, I recheck my work everything is fine.
so what do you think the problem is?

Thank WE31

Sounds like a bad vacuum leak.
Do the throttle bodies need to be re-sync'd?

Do the new wires have the sensors on #6 and #12? and are the connections for those sensors cross connected?

Hay 02540ico sorry about that, I was out-of-town for awhile. I found the problum,
it wasn`t a vacuum leak and the throttle bodies don`t need re-sync`d,
it was the Cam Sensors that were bad, so I bought the cam sensors, put them in,
the car runs great. But thanks for your help.

Hay terryY sorry about that, I was out-of-town for awhile., I found the problum, #6 and #12 are correct and the sensors are not cross.
But that was the problum, the Cam sensors, the car runs great now. But thanks for your help.
