    I have a 2002 3.0, with 240K on it. This saga started after a cocktail or two, maybe. I had a 1/3 tank of gas and I added about a half can of seafoam to the gas, which was most likely 93 octane with ethanol. I was down to about an 1/4 tank or 100 miles and I was hammering on the throttle. At...

    Hi guys! I am turning to you for help as I have spent quite a lot of money trying to fix a “loss of power and vibration” problem with my BMW 325i (e90, 2007) with N53 engine. The problem I have is rough idle (occasionally there is a misfire when I stop at traffic light but it is quite rare) and...

    Hi All, I have a howl in my 2001 - 530i. Where it comes from I can't guess. The car has a new transmission installed at DOSE lest than 3000 miles ago. The howl is present on starting up whether it's been sitting over night or for ten minutes. When the engine howls it is sapped of energy when the...
  7. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    My 2009 X5 3.0i (85k miles) occasionaly has a rough shift between 2nd and 3rd depending on throttle position. This happens on upshifting or downshifting with transmission in normal mode. Sometimes during the rough shift the motor shakes horribly, loss of power like it is running on half the...

  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi all. My first post is a frustrating one. I have had my 2008 X3 for about 6 months and I'm loving it. Apart from this problem I am having with loss of power. I was accelerating uphill yesterday when all of a sudden there was a loss of power (not total loss) and a kind of whining noise from...

    Hi, The engine seems to sometimes falter when I take my foot off the throttle. As in the car accelerates just fine, but then when I release the throttle, occasionally the engine will stumble.

    I have a 2002 530i that runs great, until it feels as if the gas isnt reaching my engine properly, and causing it to lose acceleration drastically until eventually spitting and sputtering to a stop, im thinking caty converter, diagnostic recommended i inspect exhaust system and cat, and spit...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Ok...... I've seen quite a few threads on this issue, but have never seen an answer. I noticed most of them were years old, so MAYBE by now the problem is widely known and has easy answers. I recently bought a 1999 323i for a really good price. I knew upon buying it that it had a bad hesitant...
  14. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I purchased a 2005 BMW 645ci from a private party (deep discounted) and was aware of a few electrical issues. The owner told me that "these things happen every now and then" when the radio and display screen would shut off time to time. There was also a dynamic drive malfunction fault that would...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I USED to love BMW. I was driving on a highway and I accelerated a little hard to pass a car : the engine malfunction light came up on the dashboard :mad: I had a loss of power, like if the turbos were out and there was a considerable delay when I accelerated. The car is also a little louder but...
  16. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    As I was driving around last night in my 2003 745Li Sport, I missed my turn and had to turn around at a median. I took the turn normally (nothing too fast) but noticed I underestimated the speeds of the oncoming traffic.. Not wanting to get rear ended, I gassed it. Within seconds I heard an...
