    the engine earth strap on my 328i is all black and corroded,the outer sleeving has cracked up and come off on most of it. it generally looks old and crappy. will this cause any problems? it starts ok other than a misfire on cold starts.

    Is the metal strap itself still intact ?

    If yes, then it'll be fine !

    If you want to check the earth straps, then just make sure there is no crap between the strap and the engine !

    What you need is metal on metal !
