Aight so i had a problem with my window motor that didnt work. As soon as I find a motor that works i'll be in business. However my car had been sitting for over a year. So it had a slight amount of hesitation when i cruised around 60 mph. it only shutters for a few seconds then seems to work itself out and is normal again. Welp i changed the plugs and ran a fuel system flush. that helped some but it didnt alleviate the problem entirely. I pulled the codes for my check engine light and came up as the O2 sensor. Could this be a reason why i get some slight hesitation while on the free way? There is no hesitation in stop and go traffic. Or is something else bigger wrong w/ my baby

yes i believe that the oxygen sensor would be your main problem. the o2 sensor measures the exhaust gases that reads if it burning rich or lean. then tells the computer to burn more gas or run leaner. this is from my understanding.

well if you need to change your o2 sensor becuase of the code change it.. i think somewhere in the FAQ section there is a whole write up about what the sensor does and why it will say its done when its not! check that out and run the tests! but the o2 sensor could have something to do with it...

How many miles do you have on your car? If its more than 100k then it should be time to change your O2 sensor anyway.

is there a reason why tuner motorsport.com doesnt offer o2 sensors for 318's. This sensor is for a 325 i or an M3, would it fit on my 318?
