Sounds like much to me. Any suggestions?
PS: I drove through about 4-5 inches of rainwater on my way out the neighborhood and I ride WAY lower than most e36. Maybe that'll help a little...
Question, do you have a long ram Cold Air Intake.....? If so, you could of sucked up a lot of water into your engine, if not......it
could be a faulty camshaft sensor.....but I would check all your fuses 1st, check every fuse with a 12 volt test light, ignition key on.......Camshaft position sensors are prone to cause hard starting & stalling conditions....
