    Was on a trip with my 94 318is when i stopped to get gas, filled the tank and was going to start it then it only fired for a second before it died. I have power on the Fuel pump relay, and the 30pin on the DME relay, but not on pin 86 on the DME relay. It does not have power to the fuel pump...
  2. Cars - Private Party
    Hello, I am looking for an E30 But I do not care what body type. I do not care what shape the engine is in, I would prefer a car with less rust than one that runs but if it checks both those boxes then that's great. I am fine with any model year, I do not care about the valences or whether or...

    Hi, I just recently purchased a 1994 318is knowing the passenger door won't open (I'm from Aus so the left door) and after poking around it seems the door is locked and the pin that comes down from the lock cylinder is not connected to anything and is just hanging loose. I've looked at some...

    Hello guys! I have a problem with my 318is (M42 from 93). The car starts normally when cold or hot (usually 4 to 5 spins until it fires). However, if I let it sit 30 minutes to a couple of hours, it starts in just one spin :( This means that i hear some grinding from the starter and the...

    Hi guys, recently bought a e36 318i auto (M43) And have gone about swapping a m44 from a 318ti manual into it. I have swapped the ecu, both ews boxes and the ignition barrel so they should all match. Hit the key for the first time this afternoon and the engine cranked but would not fire. I...

  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    For the past 6 months my car has made a ticking/pinging noise from the engine while accelerating (up hills especially). It's a light, fast paced ticking/pinging almost certainly some sort of fuel/air mixture/ignition timing problem. The car idles and cruises fine with no pinging noise. It's a...

    I'm working on my 318i, the car will be rebuilt for racing, and I have put in an 318is engine(m42). All car wiring has been removed, and I have connected the wires, which should be necessary to get the engine running. When i engage the starter, the engine starts, and run for 0.5 sec, and dies...

    Hello, I have purchased a 1995 318si, and I have 1 problem. When I first got the Bimmer, I started it, and it would idle horrible, and then stall. If I got the RPMs up around 2k it would stay running. I then read the ODBI code using the gas stomp method. Here is the code I received. 1215 Mass...

    My 1994 318is has been making a loud, sort of humming/vibrating noise coming from the front wheels. The noise is noticeable around 20 km/h and above. The faster I go, the louder it gets. I can feel my steering wheel and my seat vibrating as I'm driving. The noise stops when I make a left turn...
