Any help please!

Hi there everyone! My bmw is e90 320i 2006! It has already 180k km! Lately i experienced that sometimes it doesn't want to start! Brake goes hard and it wont star. I press brake so hard that i think i will break her and he starts. Do you think its break booster that needs replacement? Or its just battery?

Then when i start the car it doesn't accept gas. If it does then when rpm starts to fall it goes to 500 and either starts to shake or turns off. If i stop on the lights and want to go he stalls and barley goes to 3000 rpm and then all of a sudden speeds up and drives normally. Sometimes going from reverse and back to drive he stalls! Is it solenoid!? I spend already 1500 dollars for mechanics and no result! One of them said that tensioners on my chain are going off and thats why its acting like this!
Please guys any advice would be appreciated!

320's are not common in the US

320's are not common in the US .
In fact 320's were not introduced till this year in the US.
So you probably need to find a Euro Board to get a response.

Codes read?

Mech says slipping belt? Yeah, that might do it, but you'd hear from your computer on a number of things....

The brakes going hard point to a vacuum leak, possibly with the brake booster. If plugging the vacuum line from the engine's manifold to the booster resolves the engine problems, you'll know you have a bad booster. If it doesn't, there is a vacuum leak on the intake or intake manifold. Such leaks are quite common when the rubber hardens and cracks.

What tool did you use to scan your car? A generic code scanner won't be able to pull BMW specific codes or shadow faults.

Well, did you use an OBDII reader capable of BMW proprietary, shadow, and hidden codes?

Any help please!

Here is what happened! I gave my car to a garage. They told me only code that comes its o2 sensor. Both of them. I replaced both of them. Car drastically changed. Started to shake and idle 80% less. But still does have symptoms like i mentioned above. They told me no other codes is there to be seen. Yesterday i took solenoids out and they had oil all over them. I cleaned them and put them back. Again 5% less rough idling and more power car has now. Also idiots didn't put my air filter box correctly so i fixed that. Now car has less idling and less noise but still not like it should be. So I checked my serpentine belt and found that one part is damaged. I believe that is the problem and plus belt tensioner and pulleys have to be changed. Ordering parts today so in few days i will have some results! Cuz my 320i sound little like its diesel engine. Here in UAE is hard to trust to mechanics and even when you take it to bmw they will tell you so much just to suck the money out! Thank you guys so much for replying!

Try filling with the nozzle upside down. I occasionally have to do this with my car. Sometimes it's the gas pump, sometimes it's my car not venting properly.

You said your car does not accept gas...I interpreted this as the gas pump stops as your filling up.

Try turning the gas pump nozzle upside down and see if your car keeps stopping the pump.

Thanks man! I will definitely check that. Im taking my car today to a friends mechanic to check timing. It might be that my timing is also wrong. So many things that it might be. But i will inspect every possible thing.

Lolololol
This has crossed my mine before, I just didn't want people to think I'm crazy and start asking questions. I end up pulling the nozzle further and further out all while I'm holding it because it just keeps stopping (even when I hold it, and not at full flow either).
I guess its a little easier to flip it upside down now since I know why it actually does stop pumping. I can explain that.

You're fixing all the problems, THEN you want to sell? Dude!

Hey about that gas pump shutoff problem - look to your tank breather valve - believe it's part 10 on this pic from RealOEM. Might also be the source of 'no start after park' issue. Good luck to ya!
