Genuine BMW Replacement Intake Boot - E36 318i M44, Z3 1.9 without ASC
Common source of intake & vacuum leaks, poor idle, rough running, and lean condition codes. Replaces BMW part #13547514880
The rubber intake boot connects the air flow sensor to the throttle body on the E36 318i M44, Z3 1.9 without ASC traction control. It's after the air filter and mass air meter so any rips or tears on the boot material will allow unfiltered and unmetered air into the engine. And since vacuum and air pressure within the engine are closely managed, any air leak can be a serious problem. Air leaks from a cracked intake boot can cause your E36 or Z3 to run rough, poor idle, throttle surging, stumbling, hesitations, and misfires. These can be caused by other things but a leak in the intake boot is easy to check and inexepensive to fix! This is the Genuine BMW rubber intake boot and comes with a two year warranty.
