Mein Auto: 1988 735i
Thank you Jrvan

I also have a 1988 735i thats doing the same thing as bgbeemers car, But theres times where it will run, and then theres time where as soon as you touch the gas, she dies. also when it is running its so rich I dont dare keep it running, and the fuel pump is working, shes just getting way to much fuel, If i pump the hell outta the foot feet she trys to start but cannot maintain a constant idle. Plz let me knoow if this is what was goin on with you BMW because I love my car but my wife is sayin either fix it or sell it and there are now shops in my area that will touch it. Thanks 88_735i, also after talking to a BMW MEchanic he suggests that it may be the vein style MAF sensor located in the air supply, Does anybody know if that could cause these symptoms and sorry about mis spelling your name Jrvna.
