Hopefully someone can answer this question. I currently am driving an 89 325IS. Currently whenever I get on the gas really hard the engine flutters and spits. Like it isn't getting enough gas. This usually only happens when it hasn't been driven for like 8 hours or in the mornings. I was thinking it was water in the tank so I put some Heet in it and that didn't work as it is still having this issues. I have changed the plugs and am getting new wires. Should I get a new distributor and what not? Would that be a waste of money because there is a larger picture? I am sure I dont need a rebuild because I only have 80K on this engine. So any and all that know what they are talking about are more then welcome to advise. Thanks.
