hi guys its me again still have the same problem i took me bmw 318tds to every garage with this problem and no one no's wot it is the car jus has no power i changed the filters and the heater plugs but it still has made no diffence its a 96 318tds dose anyone have any idea wot this could b its really anoying any help wil do please????????
I'd be looking to the advance mechanism in the distributor pump. What year is the car? Does it have a mechanical pump or is it computer controlled? If it's mechanical I say you can just figure out where the advance govenor is an give it a slight whack with something and it will probably free up... if it's CPU controlled... you may need an injector pump? How many miles on her?
Where are you? The govenor would be in the injector pump man. Not for the Diesel Virgin to play with! I highly doubt that the car only has 10k on it... I really wish I could buy a diesel Bimmer in the states!!!!!!!!!!
rpms are directly related to the speed still? did this just happen one day or has the car been like this since you bought it? id i were you try a compression test... if you dont have any compression your boost is going to never build and basically your engine isnt going to work how it's supposed to...
Just imagine! RPM's being directly related to the speed of the car!
yeah... us people with the slush boxs dream of the day....
how have you tested the turbo to make sure it has good boost?

i got the turbo checked in a beemer garage its workin fine? it has jus started doin this recently.and wen i first start the car in the morning it splutters for a min but then that stops? but the car has no power.it wont even do 70 mph its really anoying. noone seems to no wots wrong do use think a haynes manual would help me wit this problem.
The hayne's manual isn't gonna tell you jack! Neither is Saltshaker because he doesn't know anything about diesel engines.... The "govenor" is for the fuel delivery system... it doesn't govern the engine speed... in fact it's just the opposite. The engine speed governs the fuel delivery. To add to his defamation ... if you had no compression in a diesel engine, the lack of boost would be the least of your problems as the engine would not run PERIOD, much less make boost! You, my friend, have a fuel delivery problem. Whether or not it is a mechanical or electrical failure is what you need to know... Has anyone checked your fuel filter for water or algea? There should be a water drain on the bottom of the filter or it could be somewhere else in the fuel feed line. Is there not a European forum that would have more blokes with diesels that could give you BMW specific info?
