1991 318iS - The Rebirth of Havok 30...

Postby dsc201knoc » Mon Jun 25, 2012 11:22 pm

So im sorry i have been gone guys.. I have been going through some personal stuff and i still am stepping out of the automotive game for a while, but i will upgrade this e30 as needed. IE needs new front brakes so the BBK is going on.

I really forgot how much i loved e30s... nimble fun and have great character

this one is pretty nice.. still getting 28-32mpg... Its just a fun car

Sometimes a step back is good for the soul man, been there. That looks like a nice clean e30, and you can't find a more fun economy car.

Im having some issues.. the scar stutters sometimes like it is in need of more fuel... The first thing i did to the car was get some injector cleaner and a tank of premium... the previous owner said he just replaced the fuel filter, and the fuel pump.. but those are the next two things on my list just because i want a 255lpm one and he said he replaced the filter the day he got it but the kid that owned it before him was keepin the car at 1/8 tank on the regular.

its odd because it is irregular, but there are times it usually happens.. its at 3k, 4k, 5k rpms and sometimes at low rpms.. it seems to be caused by over throttle?? basically i cant floor it or it stutters.. Timing? MAF? TPS?

If the fuel system is well sorted then MAF or TPS would be my guess. Is it temp dependent at all?

Not that i can hell but it has been consistently hot here and IUT doesn't matter if it's warmed up or not all the same.
