I'm a guy named Matt, who works at Ford Proving Grounds in Michigan. I look at cars run on dynos all day, nothing exciting here. In my free time I like to do some photography. Hope to learn a lot here and drool over everyone elses work while I pray that I get better. smile.gif Feel free to dig through my Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/matttrombley/

Here is my 1997 Z71 and my 1990 325i.

The truck is currently waiting for a few bucks after a city plow truck hit it and they aren't covering any of it. over $700 worth of damage.

In short, here is what happened.

Ugh! Bummer about the truck incident. Good to see someone with broad taste. smile.gif

Thanks! I try and be open minded about cars.

Yeah, it's quite horrible. I'm trying to be positive..somehow. The truck AND car are down right now. Driving my brother's Ranger atm. Annoying.

E30s are full of win. Welcome to the board.

Thanks! I just wish I could figure out why it wont run properly. Having really bad luck w/ cars right now. lol

cps, bad ecu, tunup, fuel filter, beat injectors are usually the cause.

Changed plugs, rotor, cap, fuel/air filter, and tried the cps. So ECU and injectors, or apparently a vacuum leak on these cars.. Thanks! I will have to figure out how to check the ecu. Will test injectors this weekend hopefully. This weather blows!

lol yes, or the BMW. I'm contracted through Roush. I say, once Ford wants to hire me direct, then I'll get a Ford...(probably not lol)

Thanks! Hope to stay around for a while!

Thanks guys!

On a positive note, my E30 decided to run fine today. No hiccups at all. I'm wondering if the wamr weather did something to it. We'll find out when I leave work in the morning.. lol
