Ok guys/ girls... i really need help here. I just joined the E46 class crew.=) But im having this problems with my car already. Please help if you have ever heard of such a problem.
It happens every now and then... first make a model. Bmw 330ci 2001 auto.
When im at a stop, sometimes i mean sometimes the car stalls out and stops running. I have to stick it back in Neutral and then start the car again. Sometimes it has a hard time starting and when it does, i stick it back into drive and accelerate it shuts off again. This happens every so often.
Also when im driving it sounds like the intake is trying to suck alot of air which gets louder and then accelerates hard. like lagg or some what.
anyone heard of this problem or even experienced this problem please help me! i dont want to spend thousands of dollars taking into BMW and them ripping me off.
First of all do you have a check engine light on??? Next when was the last time you did a tune up!?
Um no i dont have a check engine light on. I just have a service engine check light that came on. Im kinda new to BMW's so i dont really know if they is considered check engine light. Last time i did a tune up was 130xxx.
bad spark plug wire(s) maybe shorting? plugs? coil could be dieing?

is it ever tough to start? or does it start every time? if so, it's probably the cam sensor. if not, it could be a lot of things. best to take it to your local tech and have them read your fault codes, should give you some indication of the issue. hope this helps
