    My check engine light came on and showed code P102 - Mass or volume air flow sensor A circuit low. I bought a new Bosch MAF and put it on and cleared the codes. Now, the next day, the light came back on showing the same code. I wonder IF I could have purchased a bad MAF through Eeuroparts OR...

    I just replaced a dead starter in my '08 328i. The car starts fine now, but shuts down after 2 or 3 seconds. If I hold the RPMs at around 3000, it'll stay running, but as soon as I take my foot off the pedal, it idles very rough, then quits. Using Carly, I get a code 002F9E thermo-oil sensor...

    1994 bmw 318ic m42 engine 215k miles no check engine light Start car and idles great for 30 seconds then starts surging from 1500 to 2000 rpm constantly. Parked, or in gear, it does the same thing. Replaced icv, plugs, tps, and cps. I've read forums for weeks and can't figure it out.

    Hello everyone im having some trouble with my e30 and well it wont stay started... I have checked the vacuum lines, changed the tps, checked the icv, tested the afm, and checked fuel pressure. The car will start and run for a few seconds then bogg down and the idle will bounce between 500 and...

    All Thank you for reading this forum post, I appreciate your time and effort in responding as I am trying to get as much information as possible for taking this in to my new best friend (my BMW mechanic) and making a few more house payments for him. He likes me now. To be clear, I no longer do...

    So, I just recently bought a 1994 320i in the hope that it would be easy to get running and back on the road. I was told by the seller that all she needed was a new battery then I'd be good to go. This was, however, a lie. I bought a new battery (bloody expensive at that) and much to my...

    How's it goin guys, I have a 1990 325is 5 speed manual that I picked up in January. It's been running like a champ with only 121k miles. However, in the past month it's started a funky engine stutter. At idle the engine revs and then almost dies, and then revs again and almost dies. When you...

    Hi, Just joined the forum, although this is my second 3 series, great online community ! I swapped my old 2006 325i for a 2011 xDrive 328i e90 in late 2012. I really enjoyed the 325i but RWD in winter was becoming a challenge in Montreal so decided to go for an Xdrive model. Overall, love...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Was driving down the road today and felt a thud (not like I hit something) and immediately had a reduction in power/control and the EML, 4x4, and brake light indicators coming on. About 5 minutes later, after coming to a stop, i had inconsistent idle RPMs (600-1400 rpms on a 1 second or so...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I own a BMW 525i, 2007 (E60), done 41000 miles. At the cold start up takes the RPM to 1000 and then slowly starts coming down. At about 700 rpm it suddenly takes a sudden dip to below 500 and quickly jumps back to 600-or 700. Then its settles at 600 or about. The car also does the same when it...
  15. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey guys I've been having a problem with my '90 525i for about two weeks now. When I'm in low rpm (under 3500) my car has hardly any acceleration, if I'm cruising at 50 in 4th and mash the gas it very slowly picks up. The other (worse) problem I have is jerking/stuttering around 1800-2200 rpm at...

    Hey everyone. I am new here but I have been a "lurker" for awhile while I learn. I think I might finally be able to contribute :) I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or thoughts here. I was thinking it could be a pump somewhere or potentially a belt or tensioner somewhere, but based on...
  17. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    My 1997 Z3 just started to do this.When I start it up in the morning it won't idle until it runs for a few min.I have to keep foot on the gas a bit to make it warm up.What needs to be adjusted? Haven't adjusted anything on a car since back in the day when you turned the idle screw on the...

    Hello, I'm new to this site...just joined today. I have a 1999 528i w/237,000 miles on it. I just had the fuel pump & relay replaced. It has a few more problems that I was hoping someone could give me some advice on: 1. The car seems to start hard, not a smooth start. 2. After starting...
