Maybe, how long since the fuel filter was changed? Has the ignition system been serviced?

Throw some seafoam in the gas tank and it will cleanout any water, deposits, carbon, etc... And change the gas filter..

I have one question about the fuel filter, where is it on the 318i's? I don't have a manual and am just learning about Bimmers. Sorry to hi-jack the post for a second,

.So the chicken never made it across the road...
