    I found a car I quite like. In fact, I like almost everything about it. But I can’t survice the interior color. A fairly credible source told me “no problem, just die it”. Really? Die it??? “Sure, first you remove the old color, then you color it any color you want – easily done.” Seems...

    my 323i e36 is driving me nuts. It will run fine cold and there is no stuttering when i go to accelerate, if i put my foot down though it gets stuck at 2000rpm for a few seconds and it throws the car back and foward (very scary when im merging on motorway) once the car is warmed up abit randomly...

    Hey guys, new to the forum and also new to BMW. I just recently bought a 93 318is with a 92 325i m50 engine. Runs and drives great but it keeps dying if i let it sit too long (like over night or even an 8 hour work shift). I have a brand new battery and the alternator test good. I took the...

    I just bought an e36 m3 two weeks back. Yesterday while on the highway, i downshifted from 5th to 4th going about 50mph, pushing the rpms to ~5500. At that moment i quietly blew black smoke, and lost throttle response. I drove a mile and then the oil light and battery light came on. I drove...

    I have had some problems with my 02 325xi. It seemed to start after I replaced the spark plugs. It is idling rough sometimes and when you try to give gas to accelerate it dies down and sometimes kills off all together. I have codes p0340, p1343, p0491 and p0492. I checked for vacuum leaks via...

    I own a 1991 BMW 318i. Recently it's been getting hot while sitting in traffic. Today I opened the antifreeze cap and topped off the tank with antifreeze. After restarting my car the idle was way off and causing the car to die. I can rev the engine up and keep it going. Its a straight drive so...

    My 2001 325i has been dying on me. Usually when I am at slower speeds, like leaving a red light, or a parking space, or in a slower traffic zone. For example, when I start from a red light, on occasion, it will sputter for 25 feet or so and then either die, or start running fine. It has also...

    Hey guys! It's my first thread on this forum, so I'll try to make clear of as many things as I can. First of all, here's a link for the video, where you can see it acting weird. After 5 minutes of idling it starts "Dying or chocking" and it just dies to it. After that when you try to start it...

    Hello all, I've been having a problem for the past few months. I used to use my Bimmer for a daily driver (normally just to and from work) and eventually, the engine would just die while I was on the road. It doesn't die when it's just idling, strange enough (I can rev the engine when parked...
