Hi All,

I need help.... I bought a bmw 330d 04 plate with 81000 miles on it been running great till about a week ago... Now when driving my car it sometimes feels like im getting a bucking motion it does it when going around round abouts and also when accererating it has happened the last 3 or 4 days now and this morning when it did it the DSC light came on yellow and also the hand brake light came on yellow.... I turned off the car and then back on again and the lights have dissapeared but im still worried about the bucking motion Can anyone help ?????????????????????

A first guess is fuel starvation during turns. Is the fuel level low when this happens? Maybe the fuel filter needs to be replaced.

Hello mate,

It happens when i have a full tank and when its half empty.......

the only thing i have had done to it was buy a chip express when i first purchased the car would this have anything to do with it ????


its really weird as its doesnt stall the car but it totally jerks the car when it happens........When it started it was only doing it once a week if that but the last 3 or 4 days been getting worse and worse .........

and now its starting to effect my dash board lights.... ie dsc and hand brake light

You ABS light coming on at all?

Do you feel a loss of power (does it feel like the DSC is triggering?)?
