  1. 2006 E83 X3 SE Diesel Estate - 3FF0, huge fuel consumption, random lack of throttle response.

    General BMW Discussions
    When started from cold it misfires for a minute or so until warm. When driving the throttle will suddenly become inactive. The car will drive at around 2000 RPM, no more. It will not accelerate even if the accelerator is floored. This might last a second or several minutes. It is entirely random...

  3. Engine doesn't seem as response, Help!

    General BMW Discussions
    BMW 3 Series 318i E90 When I first got the car it was quite nippy, I could get to 40 in third gear without getting much past 2,500rpm. Now I struggle to get to 40 in fourth gear without the car passing 2,500rpm. It definitely feels as though it has not got the same power and isn't as quick...

    General BMW Discussions

  7. Can hydraulic lifters cause hesitation in throttle response

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi, been battling this issue for a week or so now. Basically car has loud tapping sound. There's also hesitation when I accelerate. I get no response from the engine and the car just bogs down. You can also see this when its idle and the car sounds like it wants to cut out but then finds it...
  8. Sudden loss of accelerator response and very rough tick over

    General BMW Discussions
    Hi. Yesterday, out of the blue, my car (after pulling over to allow a tractor to pass) started ticking over very roughly as if it was struggling to stay running. During this time, the accelerator was totally unresponsive. I continued to blip the throttle for ten-fifteen seconds and everything...

  11. 520D E61 slow throttle response

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi, I have a similar problem to Paul below I think but maybe slightly different. 56 plate E61 520D manual 177K miles good service history. The problem I have is the throttle response is very slow it feels like there is a flywheel on the side of the turbo. If I am cruising at light throttle...
  12. 2007 520D manual- very minimal response from throttle

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    As the title states, I'm getting very minimal response from the throttle. Initially the problem was that the car would start losing boost at the top of the rev range and this gradually got worse to the point that car would barely get any boost at all and now no throttle either. I've replaced the...

  15. E63 no ignition power / no ignition key response

    Auto Electrical Forum
    Hi guys. I reacently got a 630i cheap, the reason it was cheap is due to the fact it has a rather big problem of not being able to get any ignition power to ANYTHING. Its a 02/2005 E63 630i Coupe N52. I have checked all fuses on fascia and boot fuse box, no response to feeding the switched live...

  17. 89 e30 325ix - Bad throttle response, engine stops when pedal released

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hello guys! It began when I disconnected the battery while fixing the dashboard. When I connected it back, car started to act strange. Idle rpm is a bit lower than it used to be. When I press throttle pedal 0.5 - 1 second and rpm goes up. There was no delay before. And when I release pedal it...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi all, I recently changed the exhaust manifold because of the exhaust smell in the car - and I also lacked torque in the low rpm. Both problems have now been solved. However, I have 'discovered' another issue that I do not think was there before the replacement of the exhaust manifold. I...
