View Full Version : HELP! Keeps stalling

09-23-2008, 08:53 AM
Hello again,
After I replaced my crank position sensor, which I thought was the culprit, my car still continued to stall erredically. The tach and mph gauge would drop to zero even while I was coasting before the stall, you'd think the mph gauge would still register the coasting speed? It will then shuf off...I can USUALLY restart it and go for a little bit then it will simply stall again. I took it to a mech., who cannot figure out the issue. Any suggestions would be awesome!

I have been reading through the posts and I see that some fixed this issue with a new o2 sensor?

Hello mate ,have you checked all the usual culprits like vacuum hoses and intake hose between airflow meter and manifold for splits .generally with these faults you lose small amount of power and have increased fuel consumption aswell as well as lumpy pick up,i know there are some o rings on 525i that go into the under side of the manifold and these do wear away . i know yours is a530i but they are a similar set up.good luck
