just want to ask if anybody have the same experience with thier e36
bogs down under acceleration,but when u pump the gas pedal it goes,tried looking so i did'nt have to ask but cant find a similar question so hoping to get some input thanks

I had something similar with my automatic 328i - started out as bogging, then eventually worsened so that under acceleration, the RPM's would over rev, then the diff. would catch, and 'chirp' the car forward, like shifting into Neutral, then slamming into Drive. Eventually, overdrive failed altogether, and I could only drive in 3rd

Turns out that the transmision was in 'limp' mode, and is now undergoing a total rebuild (!!)

I hpe for your sake that this isn't the same problem that you have.

On a related note -- anyone wanna buy a kidney?

it sounds to me like a distributor (if e36's have those) which case it would be a coil pack. i've had a similar experience in a non-bmw. worth checking out i guess unless someone has more concrete advice.

Check the intake boot for cracks, same thing was happening on the wifes 318i, motor moves a bit when you first rev it, and allows unmetered air in. Quick fix it with a roll of electrical tape till you can get a new one

+1 on intake boot. what i did with mine was i had a can of plasti-cot, (rubberized paint?) painted the entire boot with it and the bog and hesitation went away.
