Car started shaking randomly

Hi,

I know my O2 sensor is out on my bmw x5 its a 2002 3.0 with about a 150k miles car runs absolutely great drove from Oklahoma to Texas and not a problem nothing. But yesterday while we were driving the car started shaking randomly and did not get any acceleration. I pulled over turned it off and started it back up and nothing it drove fine have driven another 200 miles and no problem ....anyone think its a major issue?

Plus it makes a rattling noise when going over bumps or at low speeds but at highway speed the car drives like a charm

Thanks a ton

P0171 and P0174 are considered lean code in bank 1 and bank 2.

Looks like you have a problem with number three cylinder. The injector appears clogged or faulty. The misfire in cylinder three with fuel cutoff is probably all related. You will have to correct each problem individually. Perhaps correcting one problem will also correct some other problem. I would start with cylinder number 3. Check coil pack, spark plug and fuel injector.

The low fuel pressure code could be a clogged fuel filter. When was the last time you had the fuel filter replaced? Fuel filters are close to $100.00+ labor. Most owners don't replace these until they have a problem.

If the DISA valve hasn't been change it could be the cause of the P0171 and P0174 code. The valve is around $200.00 but it's an easy DIY. Just two torx screws and unclipping one electrical connector is all there is to r & r. Youtube Video has a video on replacing the DISA Valve.

Typing /disa F3 in the bestlinks nets me this for the M54 engine, which may benefit you on the X5:
- Where to get a proper DISA valve repair kit (1) & how some jury-rig 'repair' a rattling DISA unit (1) (2) (3) & how the DISA valve operates (0) (1) (2) (3) (4) & how to test DISA operation (0) (1) (2) (3) (4) & a simple DIY to install an M54 DISA (1) & a nice DISA autopsy (1) (2) & a great DISA group buy (1) & how the disa valve o-ring fails (1) (2) & how it can reputedly cause all sorts of cold-engine rough idle problems (1) (2) & where to get just the DISA valve o-ring (1) & why you want to check the DISA at 100K miles or whenever the airbox is removed (1) (2) & why the DIfferenzierte SAuganlage ("Differential Air Intake") valve flap breaks (1), sometimes with parts sucked into the intake manifold (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) & a well documented example of how a broken DISA flap can ruin your engine (1) & yet another seemingly complex set of misfire codes reputedly traced to a broken DISA valve (1)

Thanks for posting back with the solution to your problem. Many people comes on this forum and post about their problems but never post about the solutions to their problems, so the thread is worthless for future people doing a search for fixes to similar problems.

On some forums you can go back to your post and edit the title to the post and add the word FIXED to the title.
