Hozit...I drive a 318i sportspack 2002 model.The timing sencors on the camshaft and crank died about 6 months ago,after about R5500 thats about 900$ it were replaced.The car was its old self again.Nowadays its losing power when the revs go between 3000 and 3500 rpm..its not all the time,just sometimes...the dealers can't find any problem with itand its frustrating the hell out of me.The car feels like when a spark plug died when its doing this.Can anybody help me please..i'm out of ideas.
The DME or ECU is your car,s electronic brain and the EGS is the gearboxes brain, they basically learn your driving style, I rest mine after the wife has been driving, you can guess why, but you do need diagnostics for this as I don't know if the battery reset works?.
The MAF is an Air flow Meter situated between your air box and throttle body, with an electric connector from it, this some times gets dirty and needs a clean, goolge search should help you on that, rather than me write a whole page on it!! also you may want to give the throttle body a clean whilst your at it, Brake cleaner is the preferred method.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
Alright i know what you're talking about..wasn't sure about the meaning of what u have suggested because i don't own a workshopmanual for the car.Had the car at the agents the other day,done diagnostics but couldn't find anything.I personally think it's something rather small causing the problem,like you've siad maybe dirt in the connections..i will let you know.
