Stalling '99 528i
I've got a 1999 528i, 51000 miles, love the car. Just recently though I started to have a couple issues and I thought maybe someone out there might help me identify the cause...the car starts just fine every morning here in Chicago, but after about a 3 minute warm up the car stalls out. WHen it starts to cut out it sounds like it's lopes a bit, like it stutters, and then it cuts out. But it starts right up again and after that no issues...runs fne. A coupe times though after restart I notice the temp gauge spikes all the way, then I turn it off, restart it, temp falls down to right in the middle and the car runs fine and off I go..But every morning I can count on it stalling once.
Then today I noticed I could not lock the doors, first I tried the key fob and nothing, then I tried the center key lock button and still nothing. I left the car unlocked all day and then this evening it worked just fine...??? I thought maybe a battery in the key fob??? but then why wouldn;t it lock with the center console lock button??
Any thoughts? Fuel pump? Still looks like I'm getting 20.1 mpg...which is normal...
