I have a 90 325is. It has 232,000 miles on it.
The starter went bad. I replaced it.
Immediately after the fix, I noticed poor driveability, especially while the
engine was warming up. It idles poorly and drinks a lot of gas.
When my starter failed there was an electrical surge. My power window
"circuit breaker" popped out- evidence of too many amps I guess.
What I do know for sure, is that I have an air leak around my injectors. I
can hear it. And when I spray throttle body cleaner around the injector the
engine revs up.
I have read in the Bentley manual that O-rings on injectors often go bad on
high mileage vehicles and cause an air leak. But it is curious that this
happened when my starter went bad.
Could an electrical surge cause my injector o-rings to melt???????
If I am going to replace the o-rings, should I just go ahead and replace the
injectors. Maybe they were electrically compromised when my starter shorted
I am a real novice and want to fix my car as easlily as possible.
All responses are appreciated.
