This is my first time on here. I have a 84 325e 5 speed. It ran pretty decent for having over 200k on it until one day it just up and died. I have tried another motronic unit, idle control unit and also changed the temperature time switch and spark plugs. It does have spark and fuel to the fuel rail. since changing all that it will start idle real rough and die. If i pump it real fast it will stay runnig but only to die anyway. Please help!!!

check your air flow sensor and the intake hose could have some tears or something sometimes it could be that theres not enough air get to engine.
