BMW E36 Rough Idle Problems

 

Rough idle problems are really common on BMW E36 cars and there are a lot of problems that may cause this to appear. First I will show you a video of such a rough idle and then list the possible problems that may cause that.

Take a look:-

The possible reasons for such a problem are:

1. Oxygen Sensor is gone: You can run a diagnosis to see if this is the problem. If you find out that it’s the problem, you should replace it. Read Everything you need to know about Oxygen Sensor! for more information about oxygen sensors.

2. Idle Control Valve: Dirty idle control valve is a very common problem in BMW E36 cars that may cause rough idle. You can use this DIY (Do It Yourself) to learn about Cleaning E36 ICV (Idle Control Valve)

3. Plugs and Distributor: You may need to replace these to solve your problem. I however don’t have a way to check them before replacement.

4. The Throttle Position Sensor (TBS) and/or connections may be bad: You can simply disconnect it and see if your problem is solved or not.

Bluetooth Ready Headunits For Your BMW

 

My brother is a big fan of car phone kits. He’s always trying to find the best one and comparing between them etc etc. I didn’t care much about them and I usually use the traditional way to talk on the phone while driving. That is one hand holding the phone and the other is adjusting my head unit :lol: . I also, hated installing car phone kits because it usually involves a lot of hassle. So, I’ve been avoiding this until I realized that the cops are not going to go easy on the issue of talking on the phone while driving.

A year ago, I had a brilliant idea (at least that’s what I thought) that why the big boys like Pioneer and Sony are not manufacturing head units that have Bluetooth units integrated inside them. Which means that these head units can act as a music player + a phone kit at the same time. The head unit is usually connected to the car sound system remember? Yesterday, I discovered that I’m not the only one who thought about this and that this is already done :-( . I’ve found two examples for such head units , one from Pioneer (Pioneer DEH-P7900BT)

And the other from Sony (Sony MEX-BT2500)

The only thing that I hate about these two is the illumination color. It’s Blue. I wish they’ve made another type with Amber illumination. It would look and act great inside my BMW E36.

What do you think of my idea which has been stolen by Pioneer and Sony :lol: . Should I go and claim my invention? :p

Shame On You BMW

 

I normally feel some hatred towards every car that has the Audi emblem. I don’t know why is that and I really don’t care much about it. I don’t recall that I have been excited about Audi cars and I mean NEVER. Before you tell me, I know that Audi cars are very good and reliable, but I just hate them. Maybe that’s because Audi is famous of their conservative designs and I hate those designs. I don’t know, but I think this is about to change. I’ve seen a new car from Audi which is the R8. I saw it first time on Top Gear (It’s a TV show in case you don’t know :lol: ). The car looks fantastic and I absolutely love it. I know that you may disagree with me, but at least, give them the credit for the nice face and headlights. The car is powerful and yet cheap (well, when compared to Lamborghini and similar cars). Its body is made of Carbon Fiber, Magnesium and Aluminium (it’s reminding me of the Bugatti Veyron). Everything about this car looks stunning except one thing, the gear stick. Come on Audi don’t push your luck.

Anyway, I want you to take a look at this car, it’s really cool and please excuse the bad sound.

Take a look:-

I just wish that BMW was the one who designed this car, that’s why I said, shame on you …
