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.

1989 BMW 325i Start and idle problems

1989 bmw 325i, when cold, will start ok, runs ok until warm, maybe 1/2 mile, then stalls out and very difficult to restart, takes 20 tries or so. Very rough idle at this point, will not drive without immediate stall. Replaced fuel filter, and fuel pump. Spark plugs changed and gap is .028. Vacuum leak check by using starting fluid changed nothing. Cleaned mass air sensor and idle control valve. Any suggestions. Desperate in Denver. Thanks

1989 BMW idle and run issue

1989 BMW 325i. When cold, idles ok, runs ok for about 1/2 mile or when warming up. When warm, car stalls out at idle and very difficult to restart. Fuel filter and fuel pump and spark plugs replaced. Vacuum leak search using the starting fluid method produced no change, No Fault Codes Ever. Cleaned mass air flow sensor and idle control valve. Driving me crazy, any suggestions. Desperate in Denver.

Do you have any repair manuals? Check the coolant temperature sesnor.
