hoolio is an unknown quantity at this point
Does anyone know what could cause my 318i M10 E30 to judder between 1500-2000rpm in every gear? It doesn't happen during acceleration or deceleration but when holding the revs in this range. Thanks in advance.

To check the ignition wires open the hood after dark and look for crossover sparks.

The spark plugs should be changed and gapped to .35 to provide better performance.

If all is good above I would get a volt meter and see if it is the fuel system failing to provide by checking the o2 sensor.

o2 sensor readings.


You can check it on your diagnostic plug though.

Use a VOM on pin 15.

.6 volts is dang rich .3 volts is dang lean.
