All right cool, so an e21 it is

Is your car carbed or electronic fuel injection? it is probably a carby in that age, which means that it is possibly not tuned in a long while and is running lean.
If its EFI, then cps which means crank position sensor could be faulty and not firing the injectors at the right time. they can be sensitive to heat with age. remember its over 30 years old now. It could also be the fuel pressure regulator.
I believe it is fuel injected, cause there are 4 kind of yellow tubes running from the filter case to the head. And where would the cps be located?

Anyways thank you guys for the help
