can anyone find out what the resistance for the air flow meter when it is about halfway open and when it is fully open? i would really apprecite it. i am gonna try to trick my computer into thinking it is working. lol
sorry its a 90 525. i was on my phone and didnt think about it. the car just runs like crap below a bout 3500 rpm. im thinking its either this of the fuel filter. i smell a lot of fuel from the exhaust. any other suggestions? btw. this forum is awsome. i will be using it a lot due the fact the i went out and got a new bmw that needs a lot of work.
i am getting code 1215. would just disconnecting help my power loss. and would it throw the service engine light?

im not gonna cut any wires yet. just gonna run secondary wires to where they go. a lot of wire tracing but if it works it will be worth the time. i will let you guys know what i come up with. hopefully the family gives me the time i will nee too.
Numark --when i disconnect the sensor it gets almost undriveable, not just crappy. but with the code my computer is giving me i want to fix that first. then move on to other problems.
can anyone tell me what affect it would have if i just ran a new ground and 5 volt power to the sensor plug? would it have the same effect as if it were all working correctly? i checked the voltage to the plug at the big plug on passenger side and was only gettin 2.5 volts. and suggestions on how to fix the issue permanently?
ok so i just ran a piggy back ground to my shock tower bolt and it got rid of the code. now i am gettin code 1444 which tells me it was a good idea. lol. anyone have any suggestions on where to permanently route the ground and whether or not i should keep it as a piggy back wire.
