Car shutting off while driving?
I own a 2002 325Ci with about 66K miles on it. The other day, I was on the freeway in stop and go traffic and was going under 15 miles and my car all of a sudden shut off.
The Check Engine Light, Electrical, and oil symbols came up, and then everything shut off. I pulled to the side of the road and turned off the car, and then started it again, and everything was fine. I am worried because this could be a major safety issue.
I have read the articles in the forums and people are saying it could be a fuel pump problem. If so, does the fuel pump fail intermittently? Also, this is not the first time that my car shut off while driving. Another time I was making a left turn and it also did the same thing.
Can anyone help with this problem? What should I do to prevent this from happening again? Could it be a problem with the battery, spark plugs, etc.?
Or is it most likely a faulty fuel pump? Thanks!
