E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Did I studder??

1989 BMW 325i, 115,000 miles, major tuneup including plugs, wires, cap rotor etc. at 100,000 miles. I have developed a studder when I am driving and take my foot of the gas pedal.

For instance, if I am in 4th gear cruising along and take my foot off of the pedal it will studder, apply just a little pressure on the pedal and it goes away. The only recent work that I did was to clean the heater control coils under the firewall cover. Anyone ever experienced that? Vaccum leak?

Found the Problem!

Seems though I have burned the coil wire where the terminal tip connects to the wire. This is the 2nd time this has happened. Any ideas? Coil need to be replaced?

Coil is getting too hot. Time for a new one.

OK, here was the problem. Seems as though I had a bad coil wire and resistance was burning the connector. New (slightly used) coil wire and all was well. TCan't remember who here had an extra wire that he let me have for a few bucks but thanks, it solved the problem without breaking the bank
