HELP 328i

my wife told me a week ago that the engine made a noise (like engine shaking) one time when she accelerated fast (to pass a car)

and today i was driving it. and when i try passing another vehicle i press the gas all the way down. and the engine shut off.


but as soon as i pull over and put it back in park. the car cranked like nothing, and drove fine the rest of the day.

does anyone have any issues similar or knows what could be wrong?

i am guessing spark plugs. but i would hate to get them and that not been the problem.

thank you in advance.

Usually coils go first.

Usually coils go first.
Get a scan it has to be from a scanner capable of
reading BMW shadow codes though.

Seems odd....out of character for a BMW.

You must go to Burger Motorsports' page. There you will discover the Bavarian Technic OBDII scanner, one of two excellent tools for diagnosis.

The other BMW dealers use: GT1

If you do not wish to buy, qualify your mech by asking to see what he uses. You know how to walk if he's without.
