Free 318i needs parts and have questions.

Its been over a year since I have been here. I had to sell my E39 5sp car that I loved because of school.

Anyway a week ago somebody gave me a 91 toyota previa for free and I traded it wednesday night for a 318i so technically it was free. Works for me.

Granted its slow M10 ( i think) but it handles well and is fun to drive.
I have several little problems that you guys might be able ot help me out with.

Here it goes.
Guage needles are bouncy
ODO doenst work
OBC is toast
Shifter is sloppy
Oil light comes on at itdle when warm. ( just got an oil change from previous onwer might put some thicker oil in)

Humming from rear of the car.
When starting cold I have ot give it gas

I think thats it for now.
I also looking for some parts
Shift boot
Shift knob
Seats
Rear end (if it is really making that humming noise)
OBC
Radio
Rear deck
Wheels (have bottle caps now)


Any help is always appreciated.

I apologize for not responding.
Its an 84.
I think I have figured out the problem with the sloppy shifter, I have been told its old bushings.
