Mein Auto: 2002 525i E39 Sport
02 525i sputtering after snow and cold weather

This morning I had to run and help my brother get his truck unstuck from the snow. I didn't let it warm up before heading up the road and when I was returning it cut off when I put it in reverse. Started it up and I had to give it some gas to stay cranked. Figured I had water in the lines so I let it run for about 15 minutes. I just went around the block and it started again 10 mins after driving. Knocks a little bit when sitting at stop signs. Anybody have a clue??

Cold over here in Martinsville too South Boston. For giggles , take a look into your exhaust pipe and see if you have an oily mess back there. Might be getting problems from a frozen CCV system. On the purge valve,I had the code for a failure on that part about 2years ago. Removed the part and sprayed some PB Blaster in it, cleaned it up good and installed back, never had the problem since. Might replace it when spring comes around though. Good luck Too ya.
