Hi, Have a realy anoying problem with my K reg 316i. Each time I go up the gears I loose power at about 3-3500 revs, its like when you hit the 6000 rev limit. The engine rattles and holds back until I change up a gear and the revs drop, it is most noticible when going up hill or pulling away at a junction. Any ideas would be of great help. Thanks in advance. Oh yeh I have just done 150,000 miles on the clock. Since posting this have been told it could be a crank shaft problem as the engine seems to (pink?) Any views would greatly be appreciated as i don't want to be ripped off by a garage.

Will it let you go any higher than the 3k? Or is it like the rev limiter busting you down.

Sorry for delay in reply but had to go to work. Well a funny thing happened on the way, the engine will now rev to about 4500-5000 before it holds back so still unsure as to why

See if you're getting any codes from the engine.

Maybe it just doesn't like you
