Hello everyone! Today I needed to lift one side of my e30 to check the diameter of the brakes drain plug (?).
I’ve lifted the car with his jack and then I putted a jack stand below that bar that goes from one rear wheel to another. But my question is, in the front, where can I pit the jack stands? If you could show me with pictures would be great!
Hi everyone. So my car for the past months has been acting quite strange. When I am going a very steep hill and I’m in third gear, the car loses power (or momentum) so I need to reduce to second gear. Until here everything is normal. But today I was driving thru that same steep hill and the car the same, so I reduced to second. For my surprise, some kilometers after I was accelerating and shifted to 4th, then my car loses power. I try to downshift, nothing… The car shutts down and I am still able to turn it on a couple times, even though he only stays with the engine working like 3 seconds. I filled my tank afterwards thinking it could be lack of gas but no… Is the fuel pump or filter bad?
My car has full battery and air reaching the intake, so is only lacking gas to work, am I right?
I’m having a problem with my beloved car. An bmw e30 316i. So when I’m in any gear (except reverse - manual transmission) and the car is moving, if I lift the foot from the accelarator and let the rpm drop to idle (arround 1200 rpm) the car starts to shake and jump up and down quite fast. But if I press the clutch pedal, the car stops doing that. If the gear is in neutral the car never does this. I had a peugeot 206 and did the same, but not so violently like this e30.
Ps. Me and my dad worked in the car few days ago. We took the intake manifold to replace a fuel pipe and repair a vacuum leak. Before that the car didn’t shake the way it does now. What I am thinking is that the ecu now has a steady flow of fuel and air to the engine and once it reaches low rpm’s, the ecu cuts the fuel supply to the engine (resulting in a choke of it).
Sorry for this long description of my problem :)
