  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Having a nightmare of an issue hopefully someone can help me rectify. Car is a 2006 BMW 550i automatic with 97k miles. Problem: When coming to a stop the car shifts weird, dips below a certain RPM and stalls out. This is EXTREMELY dangerous as I lose all power...steering, brakes, everything! So...
  2. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2002 325I that runs very well except when cold. Start up is perfect, rpm runs up to about 1200rpm then goes to 500rpm, rough idle and stalls within 5-10 seconds. I can rev the engine, keep it running and once it is warmed up it runs like a top. Any suggestions? Tom
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi there, Searched this forum and didn't find similar posts so here goes... F30 with N26 - starts right up on a cold morning and stalls out. Start it again...stalls again. Usually stays running after the 3rd or 4th try. Anybody else?

  5. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi... I'm new here and not a DIYer when it comes to wrenching, but fairly knowledgeable about my car and doing research when there is a problem. 2004 X3 2.5 with 160,000 miles. I've owned it since 80,000 and maintained it very well. My X3 has been un-driveable for 7 weeks. Below is entire...
  6. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi I am looking for some advice. My x5 starts and drives but as it gets warmer it begins to start hesitating, gets worse with accelerating to the point where it cuts out completely I have to stop and restart which it dose as normal but go through the same scenario. All over again. I have been...
  7. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    2005 E85 Z4 3.0. 47000 miles. A brand new problem: multiple warning lights come on sometimes. It's not always the same lights. The RPMs drop and the car seems to stall momentarily. It then rights itself and on we go. No diagnostics have yet been run. Any ideas ???? Thanks
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello, I've read on the subject but just wanted to get some input from the board members on this. I recently just changed my battery as the car was giving me signs of a bad battery Now though, the car has stalled on me twice within a three week period either at really low speeds, or at a stop...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I just bought an e36 m3 two weeks back. Yesterday while on the highway, i downshifted from 5th to 4th going about 50mph, pushing the rpms to ~5500. At that moment i quietly blew black smoke, and lost throttle response. I drove a mile and then the oil light and battery light came on. I drove...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have searched everywhere for the issue I have and can't find a match, so I'm starting a new thread. I had just done all kinds of work on my new used 530i, with a 5 speed that I spent a year looking for. It is gorgeous and I just replaced the cooling system, the front brakes, the oil coolant...
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, i recently bought a e39 530d and could not resist and got it chipped...(to 160kw on paper) Now the problems started... When i throttle up from low rpm and go full throttle, the engine stalls, what feels like at the peak of torque, at ~3000 rpm +/- Ive change the fuel filter, high-pressure...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    2001 BMW X5 3.0, 145K miles, generally runs good. Since last couple of weeks - when I leave home in the morning or work in the evening - it will die at the light or stop. Once engine is hot it won't happen again. I don't think it has anything to do with idling. I can be on stop sign for as...
  13. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Fellow Bimmers, 2007 BMW 650i with just under 60k on the clock. I have had the car since January and have always had shifting problems. The car always seem to push (i.e. not downshift when slowing) while coming to a stop. Now with the additional load on the engine with the A/C on, the car...
  14. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    So I have a 94 525i blew upper intake hose over heated and cracked the head bought a new head and replaced 3 bent valves...they weren't extremely bad but better safe than sorry...so after I purchase the new cylinder head I installed everything from the old head to new head used the Bentley...
  15. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I just bought a 1998 740il and as you drive the engine would just die 0-rpms then jump back up to normal and drive great again. Sometimes when we are at a light it would die then you had to turn off the key and start it back up. then it runs great again. anybody have any ideas? Thanks
  16. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I just got finished servicing the air intake and changed the air hoses, intake manifold gaskets, throttle body gasket, coolant temp and gauge sender sensors, and I cleaned out the idle control valve and throttle body with throttle body cleaner spray. Now the engine dies when I turn on the A/C...
  17. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hey, BMW peeps! Hope you can help. My 1998 Z3 barely wants to run. Sometimes, it will run like normal for a few minutes and then sputter and stall. I replaced the Throttle Position Switch, trying to pin the tail on the donkey. After the TPS didn't work, I wondered if it wasn't some non...
  18. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    So last night I was jumped in my 87 325 to go to the store real quick and it wouldn't start. It wouldn't start. It turned over and would fire for a second but then die. It took about 10 minutes of trying before it started. It almost seems like it is not getting fuel because I tried feathering...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys, I got my 530i a year ago (it's an 01). Recently it started to idle hard, car would "bounce" up and down a little. So I looked around and was told to change the fuel filter, which I did, it got better, then I was told to change the oil, it got better again but was still there. So I...
  20. 7 Series & 8 Series
    Hopefully someone can help me and my dealer. My 2001 740 has spent my time at the dealer than in my garage the last 2months. Two issues, both intermittent problems. First the car will crank but not start. Cranks well but sometimes it takes 3 or 4 attempts. Also, in gear at idle it will...
