Hi all, Just picked up an E36 318is and have a couple of slight issues.
When driving along I go to clean the windscreen, but it just cuts power to the engine instead of squirting lovely screen wash. As soon as I let go of the stalk it revs back up and happy as larry. Also in the cold morning commute a very strong smell of petrol so I guesss its overfueling. I will unplug the maf and check that - while also giving it a clean. But if its not better after what else I should look at?
I had a quick look over lunch as I suspect an earthing / electrical issue for the washer jet engine cut out issue - wiring seems to be just a bit old, as id expect on a nearly 20 yr old car. From the bottle the wire splits and goes towards the engine and the other out towards the wing. But has anyone had this fault before or know of a route im not thinking of?
