ok, i have an 86 325es. can someone tell me the specs on this car? also i have this problem with, (it seems to be from the gas tank?) when i try to fill it up, it starts throwing out the gas. no it doesnt overflow. it looks like its coming from up on top of the tank? someone help me out here. thanks
The gas spews out the input nozzle or from under the car where the gas tank is? And your best bet for oil is the heaviest single wieght oil you can find or something like 10-40 or 20-50.

I live my life one quarter mile at a time, and for those 23 or more seconds I'm free.
thanks for the welcomes guys. sorry i havent replied, i forgot all about this...lol. well i havent filled the tank all the way till it starts throwing it out, but my dad says that it does. hes not exactly sure where its coming from, but it is. another thing is that when its close to a full tank, you can smell gas really really bad. hate it! maybe that gives you guys an idea? another little problem is that when i floor it, the car seems to bog a little. like it gets no fuel response? so how does it have more torque than horsepower? one more question........is the 325is better than the 325es???
The is and es were built with totally different ideas in mind. The i-spec motors have more horsepower but less torque, and all of it comes later in the powerband than the M20B27 you and I have, but only because it's the economy engine. The i and is models are the sports cars.
I like the Eta better for city driving; lots of torque right now.
