    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi, I've got an issue with my E36 328i, as it gets to operating temp stays there for a while then it stalls out and then doesn't want to start up again, it'll only start after it cools off.

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Good day everyone. My prefacelift E46 320d 136hp started up fine a few days ago. It never gave a hint that it was planning to fail on me. After reversing out at my gate, waiting for my daughter to lock the gate and then pulling away, the car just died. No jerking or anything, just dead. We...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi, just purchased a run around car which is a 2003 320d SE Auto on 115k. I bought it blind and drove it a few times to see what it needs doing. The idle is rough and makes the car shake / vibrate (more than a normal diesel!) and when coming to a stop the car sometimes feels close to stalling...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Randomly when I’m sat in traffic with foot on the brake and in drive, loses revs, judders and then stalls. Also have a whine noise random when starting the car. I believe this is the starter motor? Could that also cause the stalling sitting in traffic?

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hello all, I have recently started to have problems with my car. It has been using more oil than it should for years, although it has never really been an issue until now.

  15. 2004 320 stalling issues

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Hi.. the car is a 2004 model, recently been serviced etc. But as the car drives at low speeds it just seems to cut off, like stalls.. this could be a basic problem, we don’t want to waste money on diagnostics and getting it checked, the car only has 50k miles. Any suggestions?

    BMW 8 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E31
    I have this very annoying problem where I release the accelerator pedal whilst slowing down and the revs drop right down to almost cutting out. This is every time consistently. The car runs faultless other than this. Good acceleration and seems to want to go on to max speed on the motorways. In...

  19. Occasional stalling 325

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    My 325i had a habit of stalling when cold just as you apply the throttle. I cleaned the ISCV (which was stuck) hoping this would cure it, but it doesn't appear to have made much difference. Can the ISCV fail or is my problem elsewhere ? Car is 2002, with 80k miles on it, recent plugs and...
