car won't run long...
hi, i'm new this forum and to bmw. I recently bought a 92 325i sedan (E36)
and now i think maybe the pump is dead or dying?
One day I was driving on the highway and my engine died out, everything else still worked fine but no motor, so i pulled aside and tried to start it again, nothing. I pulled apart the air box and majority of the intake and didn't see a problem there. but after sitting there for an hour or so it fired right up, then i tried to move it and it died. Now 2 weeks later It still will fire up and run just fine and idle all day, but as soon as i try to put it under load in any gear it just dies out.
I kinda checked the fuel pump, it feels like they are both working, i can feel a vibration from them while the car is on, but not when it's in the on position with the car off... so is there another way to check? And with a test light im getting a light off of #18 so should i start by replacing the fuel filter or go straight for the pump?
any help would be great, thanks!
