When my check engine light comes on the car stops shifting and hardly moves. If I clear the check engine code I can drive for 50 miles until the light comes back and I start having these problems.
My BMW is stalling when I accelerate, especially noticeable when trying to enter the highway. The engine shuts off and I have to pull over. Once I turn the car on and off, it restarts immediately. I have replaced the spark plugs, the oxygen sensors, the air intake boot, and checked the fuel pump. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you
The first course of action should be to pull any existing diagnostic trouble codes from the engines computer. This will require a scan tool. If you do not have one, most any auto parts stores will do this for free. Once you have the codes post them below for further information on taking care of the codes.
Sounds like a sensor failing but there is no sense in guessing if we can get a code to help guide us.
