POSSIBLE FUEL PROBLEMS
1996 BMW 316 • 2WD Manual • 70 miles
My 1996 BMW 316i (compact) began to sputter every once in a while….sporadically over the past month. Today, it started fine, and then when I went to drive away, it began to lose power. As I put the car in neutral and pressed the gas in high RPS to warm up the car; the car began to act normally. Once I started driving again, it continued to sputter, and then the problem went away. Upon driving around 40-60 miles per hour, the car began to lose power again, but quickly regained speed. It now seems as though, I have to warm up the car for 10-15 minutes before I drive, then it will act normal. However, when I go to accelerate and change gears…..the car sputters for a second then catches up again.
Send the last 7 of the VIN so I can ID the car.
The last 7 of the VIN will be 2 letters followed by 5 numbers
Sir, sorry....it is FR74074 and it is a 1999 BMW 316i
The M43 motor was not sold in the US market and I dont have experience with them. Your mechanic should start with the easy stuff like fuel pressure and delivery, fuel contamination, stored fault codes and so on.
Can anyone guide through changing the fuel pressure regulator?
