Hey guys a picked up a cheap e30 the other week, I'm having some issues I would like a second opinion on. I purchased the car cheap, its going to be my winter beater/ fun car.
A little about the car
1989 bmw 325i coupe, 5 speed manual
Recent timing belt, water pump, all new vaccum lines etc mechanically well maintained.
The issue I'm having with it is at idle the car is shaking and running like absolute junk! Sounds like it has cams, I have been getting a check engine light after about 5 minutes of the car running like a bag. The CEL light comes up on my peak reader as "OA" witch is an emissions control code, more or less oxygen sensor code correct? I'm not sure if a faulty oxygen sensor would be the cause of my idle issues though. The car is running rich but rich enough to choke it out on fuel seems a little extreme, I have purchased a new 02 and will be installing it whenver I get a free second. Just wondering if anyone here has had an issue like this before?
I attached a video
Any e30 nuts that have seen something like this , and know what's causing my issue please! Save me the time troubleshooting :p
