2929RE: [bmw e28] '86 528e auto/surging
- Oct 15, 2004I would look at the following: Run a dose of fuel injector cleaner through
fuel tank (Redline SI 1 is good). Change out fuel filter, check for vacuum
leaks, check O-rings on fuel injectors, check fuel pipes, check fuel fuse
and relay are OK and correctly seated (I had a poor contact on fuse which
had similar effect for me), clean all electrical grounds with "detoxit"
(particularly engine ground, ground under rear seat, and ground under
steering wheel. Check fuel pressure regulator valve. Check main and in
tank transfer fuel pumps. Check fuel injectors for clogging. Check Airflow
meter for metal vein binding. Check position of TPS on throttle body.
Thats about it. If you still have problem - get another car!
