Hi, I'm new at this forum.
I'm from The Netherlands and own a E34 540I 94.
My car developed the following problem.
At revs above 4500 the engine cuts completely out like there is a rev limiter. It picks up at 4000 rpm again, and when throttle is kept down it will do this continuously. It does this in every gear and also when in park.
No, engine and DME are all original.
Problem developed as intermittent first. sometimes it would develop full revs. But it is a constant problems since a couple of weeks.
I have noticed the following however.
The car smells to petrol when idling cold.
There is a very small coolant leak from the thermostat. There is some green residue near the crank sensor.
