3670Temp sensor/ leaking injectors/spark plugs
- Jun 7, 2005Hi Guys, Thanks for your help.I've done a bit of research today.The
sensor is called temperature switch 0*C according to my Haynes book -
and not fitted to my car according to my BMW dealers computer!! It is
linked to cold start valve, temperature time switch and diode relay.
I have removedv the sensor, cleaned it and re rivetted the contacts.
Now the car starts like it should do.My spark plugs are Bosch W8 -
which I guess is okay.Now one more question - my errant tachometer.
In the distributor is a thing called a pulse generator. By any chance
does this provide the pulses for the tachometer? For what it's worth
I had a flat battery the other day - the glove box light switch had
frozen and the car had not been used for a week - however on trying
to start the car the tachometer flicked up each time the starter
motor tried to turn. I guess this shows that the tachometer is
responding to something and thus the fault does not lie with the
gauge. Any ideas? Regards, Dave NZ PS In the mid to late 80's, before
our stockmarket crash, every man and his dog had an E28 - usually a
525E - now there are very few - only 3 in my town - any ideas where
they all went?
