injectors not leaking... already checked. thanks. today, i disconnected the air intake temp sensor, drove the car around a bit (not good performance) plugged it back with my MAF and it drove like a dream, 5 minutes later after switching off to get a bite, the whole madness started again!!! the strange thing is.... i disconnected the Camshaft position sensor and the car does not miss it at all (ie like it was not doing anything) should the car start at all without it?
"If the hot him breaks or if there is no output from the air flow
sensor, the ECM automatically SWitches to a "limp-horne"
mode and turns on the Check Engine light."
when i disconnect my MAF i do not get a 'bong' neither does my car turn on the MIL light ( i doubt if i have one as i have never seen it) and my car can still kick ass!! JUst takes a lot of gas!!! i get the same fuel consumption either in town or on the open highway!! something MUST be wrong. i can afford the fuel, its just not running properly. the ONLY authorised BMW workshop in Abuja, (BMW NIGERIA) wants me to pay the cost of the car to "diagnose" and asked me to leave the car for about a month because "intermittent problems on cars this old take more time" i felt like shoving my foot in his mouth!!
