I"m in need of some help here guys. My 325 seems to be cutting out randomly. sometimes it stops, but sometimes it keeps doing it. I was thinking that it could be the fuel filter, but I don't want to do anything until I get some more advice.
Any advice would help out thanks guys
It seems to be random. Now it kinda does it to where it won't rev over 2 until it runs a little. Other then that it seems to do it when I try and put the pedal all the way to the floor. How would I check the AFM and the ICV
Oh joy. This fellow has the same problem I do in the mornings. High five, dude.
Okay, all banter aside, I'd like to know what the hell is wrong with it too. Would it really be a fuel filter if the car runs fine once it's warmed up? I guess the only way to find out is replace that *&^%$ valve (which is worth about $270 up here).
C'mon guys, help us ETA drivers out.

Changed the car's name, now it's - Roxanne -1985 325e
have you tried BAvauto for their price on the valve? mine was only about $150. And, if worse comes to worse...do what i did last time i bought something from overseas. A buddy went and bought it, then privately shipped it to me(saving me about $65 in the process). This method could easily be tailored to the US. And i think EnvyM3 lives in NH, which is also where Bavauto is located.
R.I.P fast 6
Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
I"m thinking that it might be the dist cap. It rained out and everything got alot worse. Now it won't run right at all. If it even runs at all it seems as though its only running on a couple cylinders. Could this be the dist cap???
