    Hi guys.Iv just recently got my m3 back on the road from it sittin in the drive for a year...it needed a little work to get thru its mot and then the steering rack went so i got that fixed also.Now it keeps cutting out on me whilst im driving or even just as i start it and it sometimes takes a while to get it to start,when it does you cant drive far untill it cuts out again(whilst all this happens the engine management light does not come on,just the battery light first but iv checked the battery and its ok 12.3v).I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem??Also i live in edinburgh and am struggaling to find a garage with the right diagnostics machine to hook up to my car any suggestions?

    First thing to do is to check all the rubber air pipes and vacuum hoses under the bonnet. If any of these are perished or cracked they could cause this problem through drawing in un metered air....

    Crank or cam shaft sensor



    Have you had anything unplugged at the front of the engine recently?

    I had a crankshaft sensor plug that I forgot to plug in correctly once and it eventually imobilised the vehicle.

    All the vacuum hoses are concealed under the inlet manifold which is not the most pleasant item to have to remove
