Mein Auto: 1999 323i
anyone know the problem?

i got a 323i that likes to stall when hot at low idle. You can start the car cold and drive as long as you like with no problem but once you shut it off and restart it likes to stall at idle. It also acts as if it is not in the proper gear at this point either and doesnt seem to like to downshift accordingly.

Getting the codes scanned is always the first step in any diagnosis. Write down the results, and post them here. Then maybe we`ll have something to work with....

Has nothing to do with getting the codes scanned....

Gangsy, check the engine section of the e46 wiki about scanning for error/fault codes. Start there. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...05#post8014505
