i have an 83 528e with an engine that cooks the cat. converter withint a month of getting a new one...
hmm well i figure it's an internal prob with the engine, which means money..
well i noticed that there was an 82' 528e sitting right next store to me
i ask my neighbor about it.. AND>.
the interior sucks BUT the top end of the engine has been rebuilt...
i talk him down to $300...
THE only thing about it is... the motronics box burnt out.. i can get another one for 100 (used)
but i was thinking i have two bmws hmm one for driving one for screaming??
any suggestions what i can do to the old booger to make is scream?
and wtf does the motronics box do? (if someone has a link to a site that explains it that would be great,) i just assumed it was some type of control module that help the computer along with stuff.. any way thanks for suggestions..
Their should be a model number on the control box. Make sure that the replacement module has the same model number on it. I put a used L-Jectronic module in my old e30 318i and it was fine. But like I said make sure that the numbers match. The motrinics box controls the electronic fuel injection, does the '82 run?
