I have a 1985 BMW 318i Cpe with manual transmission. Because of a hesitation while trying to accelerate and a starting problem, I recently replace the spark plugs (not the spark plug wires) as well as the o2 sensor and the mass air flow sensor.

I still have the acceleration problem as well as a harder or worse problem cranking the car. Could this be a distributor timing problem?
