  1. BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    Hello, My X3 isn't running well, as above the idle is rough and the engine is hesitant below around 2000 RPM. If I disconnect the vacuum pipe from the EGR valve and plug it, the engine runs fine, although with the EML showing. I'm assuming that the fault is somewhere in the EGR system...

    Just wondering if any BMW owners have had the same issue?? Car starts up fine, then 2-3 seconds later engine starts jumping and spluttering and nearly cuts out. Pressing on the accelerator usually will stop it. Only happens when the engine is cold and doesn't happen say after driving for a...

    Hello, I have recently picked up a 2008 E60 530D, its my first automatic transmission car so not really sure if this is an issue or not.....

    Hi all, 116i 2005 build. We have had the car since July 2015 and I've noticed that, (untill December) it has started first time with no major issues, but it has never really "jumped to life" when pressing the ignition. However... In December the car just wouldn't start, it was hooked up to a...

    Hi, Can anyone help please? Thanks. My car was using lots of oil and smoking blue, has 126K recent CCV and breathers replaced. Oil consumption was high, used Forte seal conditioner, seems to have rectified the problem. However; my car is STILL hesitant in power under 2k RPM, surges now and...

    Have 2003 E46 318 If sitting in traffic for more than a few seconds the car will not pull away cleanly, sputters with no power and then takes off, the longer it is sitting the worse it is, if left too long in a jam it will stall. If you just pull up to a junction and then pull away it will pull...

    Hi guys, hoping someone can help Last week my e90 starting hesitating when changing up to second/third gear. It would lurch for about 2-3 seconds before the revs picked back up again.

    After spending many hours cleaning, replacing and trying to diagnose an annoying hesitant misfire under mild acceleration around 2000 revs I finally got round to removing the Map sensor. I kept putting it off as thought it would take ages to remove, but after removing the pollen filter and...

    Hi guys. As my username suggests I'am more accustomed to japanese cars mainly Hondas and I'm struggling a little bit to diagnose what's wrong with my current BMW.
