    Hi, I have recently joined this site and hope someone can help. I own 323i 1998 BMW car for the last 12 years.While driving the engine dies and I move the car to the side of the road and turn the ignition on again - it drives again. It does this once in a while.
    This feels dangerous for obvious reasons. Nothing shows up on the on board computer. The car also judders once in a while. I had the car serviced and the mechanic told me this may elevate the problem but it has not. What could be wrong please help if you can. Thanks

    Thanks, all help is appreciated. The engine cuts out only about once a week but I am sure it may get worse over time. Thats the same with when the car judders only once in awhile.
