Alright so I got an 84 318i and it used to occasionally stall after giving it more than normal throttle. My dad thought it was the fuel filter so I went ahead and bought one and put it on one day after it stalled on me and failed to start up after a few minutes of letting set. Well the filter didn't solve anything.
As the car sits it is running very bad and wont stay running. It seems like its misfiring and smoke it coming out of the exhaust.
It has a new cap, rotor, and plugs, but not wires yet.
So my question would be could the wires be bad enough to cause this type of behavior or is it something else I need to look at?
