1979 320i - car dies when it "warms up"

\015 Car runs fine for first 15-30 minutes and then it dies. Usually it dies when the car is idling or in low RPM. When running in higher RPM it seems to run for a lot longer. At first thought it might be a fuel issue. I changed the fuel filter. However, someone sd it might be an electrical or sensor issue. Any ideas? Let me know if you need more info.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

My car has a miss when you cold start it. The rpms go from 0 to 1000 and sometime dies. When the car warm up about a mile down the road it runs fine. I've had all the vacuum lines checked, mass air flow meter, cleaned the injecters, put plugs in it and it still has a miss..A mech. thinks its the cylinder head temp sensor.Before I tear the front of my motor off I'd like to know if hes right.
