      Quick question for those in the know. I just started driving my 318is, and the fuel gauge goes to full every now and then when I know it's not. I'm pulling the cluster now to look for the obvious, but before I start barking up the wrong tree perhaps someone could point me in the right direction. I had a similar issue on my 325i and it was a loose ground, but IIRC it effected all the gauges.

          would a 90 325i sending unit be the same as a 91 318is? Just asking because I have one.

            I popped on some other stuff and decided bilsteins would do fine.

                  Yeah, on the eta's the crank sensor at the front of the engine is simply for diagnostics. The crank sensor you're looking for that connects to the DME is on the flywheel/trans bellhousing.

                  Definitely just swap out a working main relay as well for your no start issue. You've got a ton of posts, but it's worth recommending anyway lol

                  Thanks a lot, I had no idea I had that many post until you mentioned it, post count means nothing lol half that's probably in this damn thread.

                  I'm still learning how these systems work, every time I think I know what I'm doing something happens I can't fix.

                    Anyone who thinks that post count = knowledge is an idiot. I know because I'm an idiot and I have a shit load of posts.

                      True statement.

                        Anyone who thinks they know everything to learn about something is sadly mistaken. There is always room to improve.

                          Two phrases of wisdom (of many) I learned from an old tech named O'Hara:

                          -The day you stop learning, you die.

                          -The smartest man admits he knows nothing.

                            So I've decided my first purchase off the Snap On truck is going to be Wobbly Extension set in 3/8ths. Those are so priceless. Love em.

                              It's a slippery slope. I don't want to know how much money I've spent on the snap on truck.

                                Seth, just replace them both. Or not. I think they are both the same sensor.
