    My car cuts off after about 30 miles or so. It wasn't doing this regular at
    first.. Now its everyday. It does start up again but not always right away,
    sometimes I sit for 20 30 mins. other times it starts immediately. Does a
    ripped vacuum hose have anything to do with this? Is it the fuel pump? or
    can my fuel injectors be bad? or is the fuel line dirty? where should I
    start.. thanks for the help

    I don't know much about these cars but I've had one for a few years now and
    had a problem, once, that sounds like what you discribe. It turned out to be
    a bad fuel relay. This little bugger is behind the ashtray by all the fuses.
    It's white or was on my 90' 740 GL and they say you can re-soider them but I
    just got a new one and installed it where the old one was and it fix the
