right, i know, but i never heard of a BMW car being referred to as a "bimmer" people have always said "beamer". but i do know about the motorcycle thing. i'll look at the computer. stupid German confusing technology.
Leave it alone dude, hes asking for help, not retarded BMW internet lingo.
Its an e36 so it has a timing chain, no problems here as it will last the life of the engine. If the compression is good replace the obvious - plugs, wires, injectors, coils if need be, sounds like an ignition problem to me.
If the compression is bad then dont bother, because it will most likely burn huge amounts of oil if it has low compression.
