loaded question (new car)
Ok, I just bought this car ('88 325) and I have been fooling around with it trying to straighten out erratic idle and fast idle. I found that I had the wrong AFM on it so I decided to just run through the whole thing and do all the maintenance and replace all the hoses and stuff. When I went to check the resistance on the injectors, I found that it was approx. 16 ohms when my car is supposed to be 2-3 ohms. I checked the part number and they are for '84-down 325e's. I found that my TPS is not working correctly and I found several leaky vac hoses. I also found the sensor wire broke thats on the #6 plug wire. I found my throttle body stop screw has been messed with and backed all the way out and the butterfly gets hung up and hard to open from completely closed. So I have my work cut out for me here and I am sure I will find more as I go.....
what are the differences in the injector out puts? Do I need the correct ones?
How important is that sensor on the #6 plug wire?
Is there a huge difference in a 325 and 325i AFM? Do I need to change it?
I found the coolant hoses that connect to the throttle body have been removed and both hoses have been plugged. Is that a problem? What was the reason for doing that, there is no obstruction in the TB??
Is it easier to remove the head to get the manifold and injectors off or can I do it without removing the head?
Sorry for all the questions in 1 post but I need to get it all out and see what I need to do. I have thought about doing a 2.7i swap since I have the super eta and all the electronics there. I need to replace so many parts anyways. It looks like I have some oil leaking out around the head gasket under #1 cylinder so I may just take it off while im in there to fix that.
