Mein Auto: 08 535ix JB4 tune
Engine skip no code

At a take off from stop no problems most of the time
But at cruzing speed when step on the gas
The engine skips. My Indy said I need plugs, I have
104k on 08, 535xi and we just pulled the
History on the car from the dealer and it has the original
Plugs. I had thought they changed them but I guess not
No code and no lights
At 90k I had turbos ,water pump and thermostat done
Any thoughts Change plugs skip go away?

Damn, reads like freeform poetry....

Anyway, on the N54 and other turbos, the recommended plug change is 50K or so. If originals, replace them.

DIY job, easy to do.

Plugs are not cheap and if it doesn't fix the
Skip I'm still in the same spot with a skip
Every time I get on it. the last time I had a
Skip like this it was a coil and a CEL came on
But no codes this time
Thoughts?

I am actually at BMW dealer for the same problem (amongst a few others). I have CPO and am hoping that whatever it is, it's covered. I'll let you know what I'm told. I have a 2008 535i with 86K.

I have the same problem on my 08 535i. I changed the plugs and coils then updated my injectors and the problem is still there. Walnut blasting fixed the problem. Carbon build-up in your valves will cost misfire with no codes unless you floor it then codes will pop up.

Carbon buildup is my issue....SA indicates covered under CPO, however, has to get approval from BMW NA with a pic before proceeding. Fingers crossed it will be covered.
