alright guys, as you can see i am new to this forum but i need help very badly.* my problem is that i have a 1986 325e and it is getting around 10 miles per gallon of premium gas.* i have done nothing but pour money into this car since the day i bought it.* i am hopeful that maybe you guys can offer me some ideas of what could be screwed up, and what can make me get 10 miles a gallon.* if you need more details let me know and i will get as detailed as i possibly can. i really dont know what else there is to say other than i get 10 miles a gallon though.* well anyway, please help me!

my o2 sensor is brand new and working. no smoke is coming out the tailpipe so that means it is running ok right? i just fixed an gas leak so i think that i am not leaking anymore. so is my last cance for fixing it hooking it up to a computer?

first of all he wouldnt be running lean if he is using too much gas, and dont waste your time trying to get someone to hook it up to a comp. they can not pull any errors on your car, it doesnt have self diagnostic capabilities there-fore it cant tell a comp. what the problem is. Im really getting tired of repeating that statement. now for you fuel problem, there are a number of things that it could be, have you changed your fuel pressure regulator? also you could try your air flow meter

sorry if i am irritating everyone it is just that i am lost and dont know what to do.* i appreciate your help so far.
so what is a* fuel pressure regulator, and air flow meter??? how much do they cost and where can i get them.* also are they hard to install?* thanks.
also when i start the car it squeaks and occasionally seems to be overheating.* i replaced the thermostat and that was unsuccessful in fixing the problem so i went back to reading and read something about an bearing in my water pump or something that could be causeing the problem.* if you know anything about that or how much a new water pump is please let me know.

take your car to a BMW specialist, especially if you dont know what those simple parts are. and its not a mass air flow, its an air flow meter big difference, how exactly would he go about hooking his car up to this magic computer kowalski? explain that to me and show me some info and pics on the comp.
