    E36 (1991 - 1999)
    so i had a hole in my intake hose that goes into the throttle body and I went to the junkyard and got a new one and replace it. When I tried to start my car it would rev up and down and then eventually turn off. I unplugged the battery to reset the system for a little bit and its still doing the...

    Ok so occasionally I like to take my really old bmw 3251 e36 out for some fun. I go onto an abandoned road and do peel outs, drift, etc. well today I went our and I tried to get close to the rev limiter without going over. I was stationary, and I floored it and I hit 7000 rpms.

  9. Almost stuck between sports and eco

    E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi this is my first thread thing so im not really sure if im doing it all right. Switched my 1996 318i to sports mode the other day in the city and switched it back to Eco once I hit the highway. Then oddly enough once I sat on 110km the revs started jumping between 3000rpm and 3500rpm like...
  10. 85 318 More than I bargained for

    E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So here's the deal, I was given this 1984 318i 2 door 5 speed. The rad was leaking and I found a rad and replaced it. I have noticed that while replacing the rad there are two connectors that I swapped over from the old rad onto the new one, however I can't find the wires that connect to...
