Gumed up like nothing I have seen befor almost blocked and mine is a 95 I cant imagine what the e30s & older e36s look like

I should also mention that behind the 2 butterfly valves it was a mess also and the valves were defently not seating correctly with no presure on the gas pedal DIRT DIRT DIRT what a mess!

How long did that take? I should do this. Well, there's a lot that needs to be done, I'll just add it to the list.. At least it's a cheap project!
