i have an 87 bmw 325i ragtop: my question is sometimes when im driving the gas just seems to quit working the engine stays running but my gas petal just doesnt seem to work does anybody have any idea whats wrong with it?
when you say doesnt work, do you mean there is no response ? or what happens ? your throttle is ran by a cable, i would first check that to start. let me know man
yeah thats what i mean there is no response the engine stays running but its like i have no gas pedal... i checked the cable it seems fine nothings wrong with it........ could it b my fuel pump?
Shouldn't be the fuel pump. It sounds like a problem with the ignition system. I'm drawing a blank on the name of the part, but it's where all spark plug wires come back together. There is a round disc like thing and another thing inside that can wear down? Come some one help me on my terminology? I had the same problem and just completely redid the entire ignition system and the problem was fixed. Sorry I can't think any more this week (my brain is shot and now on beer), but I'm sure someone knows what I'm trying to say. Let me know if this helps! good luck, Greg
Sounds like a plugged fuel filter to me
Distributor and rotor! Check your rotor. Mine was completly worn out. Fuel filter could be an issue as well. For the cost, go ahead and swap it. Good luck!
