Hi all, My name is Matthew.
I have owned a 516 a few years ago but sold her fast as i thought she was a little underpowered!
I have just bought a 318 1998, got to say WOW ...... I'm loving the solid drive and can't wait to start working on her.
I'm after some help though !!!! I know, first post and I’m after something !!!! I'm guessing that if your into your E36's (BMW's) that you will enjoy sharing your knowledge with me.
So, My 318 came with a few faults!!! Firstly there are two warning lights on the dash. These come on when ignition is turned on not when it starts moving so i would guess that means electrical and not hydraulic problem! The first is the ABS light, second looking like (!) centre middle. I’m guessing this is the ASC ? The button does nothing so I’m guessing it’s that. Any advice on how i diagnose the prob?
When shifting into first I get resistance that varies during a drive. I’ve held the stick against the resistance turned engine off and the stick slots into gear effortlessly so do i guess its a clutch issue ?
Can some one tell me what goes in the boot !!! I have a plastic tray bottom right that is empty !!!! and a shelf thing above it that I’m going to guess was for a cd changer? If so are all e36 wired up for the changer regardless if one was fitted as I would like one fitted.
Think that’s enough questions for my first post. Thank you in anticipation for your responses.
