I'm getting ready to buy this sweet beamR but it's got a few issues. I am willing to invest in repairs and have some basic understanding of E36/E46. I just need some info to help me at least be able to drive off the seller's parking lot.
1995 BWM 325i
Smell of gasoline coming somewhere from the engine bay.
Rough Start/Idle Stall - must continually push gas pedal to keep it from stalling.
Stalls immediately when releasing the gas pedal.
MISFIRE AT # 2.
While pushing the gas pedal, the car will continue running, and will most likely be drivable long distances, at least letting me drive off the lot. However, there is this very loud "Clap!!! Clap!!! Clap!!!" popping sound coming from #2. The owner says this car was his daily driver to work. He says it could either be 1) Spark Plug 2) Coil 3) Fuel Pump etc...
My question is, to be able to drive off the lot, can I disconnect #2 completely, and will it let me drive on 5 cylinders? Thanks guys, all help greatly appreciated!
