Hey, I'm new to the KW area and I own an E30. Looking to meet some friends. Are these rides in London still going on?

I'd definitely be up for a meet if it was in the evening.

If I can get my shitbox running right, I think I could probably talk my lady into Grand Bend breakfast.

My issue is electrical though (CPS, Ignition coil, main relay or an intermittent short somewhere). Finding the issue is not going to be fun.

Either day works for me...

What's the electrical issue karmatose??? My E23 is currently giving me a high idle issue. Took the AFM and refurbished it so it now runs the best I've ever seen it yet. Still have to test for a vacuum leak and hopefully something pops up because I'm running out of ideas lol.

Well, I think I've narrowed it down to crank position sensor. More or less what would happen is the car would just randomly die over bumps, etc. Plugs were all good, fuel system (tank, pumps, fuel filter and relays) are all new, DME had been swapped out, etc... So I had very limited things left to look into (CPS, main relay, wiring harness).

After some eyeballing yesterday at work in the parking lot I noticed the wire for the crank position sensor was right up on crank pulley. I think what was happening was the cabling for the CPS was contacting the crank pulley and causing the dme to stop functioning. Pulling the cps cable back from the crank pulley seems to have made things better on my drive home yesterday (no stalls, yay!).

Snagged a spare from Boxer2 yesterday and going to throw it in tonight. Going to pick up a new main relay too on principle. Cheap insurance.

I'll know about Saturday this evening after I go for a test drive.

Edit: ProStreetDriver; As far as your high idle issue, one easy thing to do is check the vacuum line that runs from your FPR to some kind of vac source (probably on the intake mani). Not overly familiar with the M30. Anyway, pull that line and plug up both spots. If the idle drops back to where it should be, replace the line. OR, worst case, bring it over and we can get some cigars and do a ghetto smoke test (and enjoy a cigar).

Sounds like you've got it solved, good to hear! Always a pain having to troubleshoot where happenings like that.

Was suppose to check out my vacuum lines today, ended up getting into something else and never had a chance. I'll definitely give that a try, thanks for the tip! I've heard of the cigar trick, never tried it before. I was just going to try the propane method, hopefully the mechanical fan won't give me too much trouble with air movement.
