  1. What is the condition, mileage, history on the engine?

    LE2-Jetronic - Help Needed

    Hi, I'm actually looking for a set of 16s or 17s to be honest. Ideally Style 15s for a 16" rim. But thank you very much for the heads up.

    LE2-Jetronic - Help Needed

    Just for everyone's reference it was a fuel pump relay causing an intermittent fault along with a minor misadjustment of the AFM. Now sorted and running so looking for a set of wheels now so that I can start the long journey to fully roadworthy and onto my daily driver.

    LE2-Jetronic - Help Needed

    Just a quick update for all. Unplugged TPS. Made no difference Pretty sure its an electrical/AFM issue. Looking for a replacement to evaluate at least. All the wiring checks out however I did have to replace the earthing strap in the alternator to get sufficient charge and had some issues with power at starter so need to take a look at all wiring probably.

    LE2-Jetronic - Help Needed

    Thank you very much for the feedback. I actually haven't thought to check the TPS so I'll give that one a try. I know, I've said for some time if I need to spend money on this engine I'll rip it out and put something else in as that was always the plan. Just may happen sooner than I planned!

    I did figure that. As you said, despite BMW stating that part numbers are interchangable.

    LE2-Jetronic - Help Needed

    Sorry, I should have also stated that I have tried a known good AFM and it ran like a pig, wouldn't even idle without throttle. However this AFM was from a 1988 E30 320i (M20B20 with motronic). Injectors were also from the same engine.

    Ignition timing is fine. It's not my first rodeo with M20's however everything else I've had has had motronic systems. I'm in Milton keynes.

    LE2-Jetronic - Help Needed

    Hi All, After a fairly exhaustive check, clean, rebuild schedule I'm seeking some advice on my running issues with a 1985 520i with LE2-Jetronic. My major issue is that it starts, and idles at 800-900 rpm, and after 30 seconds, cuts out and smells like it running very rich. Car hasn't been on the road for 3 years. Mine has no Cold Start Valve. No Thermoswitch. But does have an Air Slide Valve and far too many vacuum lines for my taste. For reference, I have fitted new distributor cap, rotor arm, spark plugs, blue temp sensor, air filter, timing belt, water pump. I have cleaned the air slide valve and some other coolant passages that were blocked. I have also trialed known good fuel pressure regulators and injectors. The previous owner did play around with the AFM but unfortunately did not mark the start point so I have no idea what the correct position is. Prior to replacing the timing belt etc the car ran, and at the very least got up to temperature, however, had no power, struggled to get above 35mph, spluttered under load and was generally dangerous. I am now just trying to get it to run long enough to bleed the coolant system. For reference, it will stay running so long as I keep the idle at ~1000rpm on the throttle. Any advice that people can provide would be much appreciated. Cheers
