    On my 523i with M52TU engine. The engine starts fine, warm or cold and tick over OK and will run, with throttle opening, up to around 2000 rpm but any attempt to go higher or crack open the throttle will result in the engine running really lumpy with no increase on rpm. It will remain running...

    Hi all, So today I was driving to work on the A38 and the car just didn’t want to get up to speed at all, had a total loss of power and it wouldn’t go past 60mph. No EML on dash. There is an ABS warning light which I believe is the rings which I’m getting fixed next week but I bought the car...

    Hi all, this is my first post on the forum! It's a pleasure to be here and definitely a massive amount of knowledge. I've spent many hours looking through existing threads but none of the solutions posted have worked on my car. The problem is I've got my car tuned from 218 hp to ~270hp. The...

    Hi, I'm looking for my first "premium" car. The BMW 3 series ticks every single box except for one thing. The interior. I'm looking at a 2016 320i or 330i (preferred option) versus a Mercedes C200. The engine, auto transmission appears to be better in the BMW than the Mercedes. Mercedes...

    Hi, I have a BMW E90 330D 2007. I've read lots about modifying the clutch by a clutch stop to shorten the travel, and removing the CDV to get more reliable clutch engagement which i will do. However, the biting point if quite far down the pedal (near the floor), after the clutch has engaged...

    Problem started a couple of weeks ago. Anytime you give it some revs quickly the car cuts out with the management light on. Takes a bit of restarting but feels down on power and wont rev past 4000. I've just parked it up and got out the old 320d compact until i can sort it. Had a look at the...

    Hi there got a 2001 e46 330d 181hp that won't rev past 3000rpm. It feels like as if it's hitting a limmiter, and pours out black smoke when you try to go past it. It sometimes dose go past and you get a bit of power around 4200rpm then. If you try to go past and pop the clutch in it idles...

    Hello! Im thinking of buying a e36 1.8tds. The seller said that it wont rev past 1400rpm and the problem is a faulty accelerator pedal position sensor. Could it be the sensor, engine safe mode or anything else? Any help appreciated! Thanks :)

    Hi, I'm new to the forum but not new to BMWs. Here's a little history.... I got my first BMW in 1995, this was a 1987 E30 316 (the one with the computer controlled carb on an M10B18 engine). Yes, the most basic model, no power steering but it drove great after I learnt how to set up that weird...

    I'm struggling a bit here, my recently purchased 535d won't make boost past 1.5 bar, standard it should make 1.75 bar, I've tested the turbo valves and found the wastegate wasn't moving, this was due to a blocked vacuum line, this is now fixed but it still won't make any more boost, I adjusted...

    Hi, (first post on forum and first BMW owned!). Recentley bought myself a very tidy 2000 328ci coupe automatic. I soon realised the accelerator pedal is quite stiff compared to other autos i have driven... It isn't causing any problems but after googling it and seeing a variety of possible...
