Engine stalls randomly

Post by Rppn » Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:21 am

Hi Guys,

I have this weird problem. Let me try to explain. (Got an BMW E24 635CSI from 1978 L-jetronic) Sorry for my bad english ;)

When i'm driving the engine stalls randomly. Sometimes after 30min sometimes after 20min. (When the engine is warm) Sometimes when i can hold the rpm's at 3000 when driving the engine shuts down en restarts immidiately without stopping. I noticed that the thermostat is stuck so the engine becomes very warm. Can this cause the stall problem? Already checked the fuel pump relay, main relay, ecu, vacumlines. Could it just be bad grounds?

Hope you guys can help me out with this one!

Thanks in advance!
