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!

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?
