Issue with idling when the car heats up
Hey Guys, I am new here. I have a BMW 318i (1985 - m10). The car was my dad's car and the car blew the top gasket. So my dad had the head redone and he then put it on the car years later but he never finished the job.
The car has been standing for 11 YEARS! So my dad passed away, a couple of years later I took it to a mechanic to finish the job... but he could never start the engine. He took a lot of money, did NO work what so ever and stole my radiator. So three weeks ago I started working on the car to keep me busy during the day.
Now I am not a mechanic at all, but I know a few things. So I got the engine to start, he had a timing issue so I replaced the spark plugs with cables, distributor cap and rotor and did a whole service on the car. The exhaust is rotten, but I will have a new one put in shortly.
So now I have a issue that I can not figure out. The car will start and Idle fine but the moment it heats up it will all of the sudden lose power and run as if you pull out the plug on the distributor. So I also pulled out number 1's plug on the distributor and it keeps on running the same, when I pull the others out, one by one, the engine dies. I have even changed the injectors and it is till doing that. But when the engine is cold the car starts perfect and idles perfect.
Please, can anyone give me advice????
