I'm helping a friend work on his 94 318i we replaced the PS pump and pulley after it tore up the belt but following the routing map the belt for the ps water pumps idler and auto adjuster alt and crank the belt for the 318i is about 5-6 inches to long and the belt for the 325I is about 2 inches give or take to small trying to see if anyone can tell me what engines would fit in this car so I can try to get the right belt. Thank you

The engine you have is a 318IS, it is 140? bhp vs the 318i's 117bhp.

Engine code is m44b19 but you need to check vin number to be sure. It it is m44 you need this v-belt

That is what i mean, your engine has a double cam rocker cover ( if i am saying this right in english). Makes me think it is a m44 engine that has been put into your m42 car.

When compared to my own m43b18 engine there ia a difference in length in the belts.



1660 vs 1733 , my guess being you were able to get the to small m42 belt on with the belt tensioner compressed, when you actually needed the m44 belt.
