Try jacking up the front and see if you can wiggle the wheels by hand. My car had this same problem, needed new tie rods. Hope this is your problem too, tie rods are a lot cheaper (and easier)!

Update: I replaced the fpr today, the hesitation is gone and the car is running wonderfully. After an oil change I'll see if it fixed the gas smell problem.

Gas on the Dipstick?

Hi! My 325e is having a hesitation/rough running issue. The air lines all seem good, but there is a smell of fuel on the oil dipstick. Could this be caused by a bad fuel pressure regulator?
Thanks!
