Question about 2006 BMW 545i
Hi! I have an '04 545i 6spd with 38k miles. Love the car! I have, however, noticed a "hesitation" during light acceleration. The best way I can describe the feeling is it is like driving a car that is not completely warmed up....very slight but noticable to me, of course. I have brought it to the dealer, but the "technicians" that are "experts" cant and wont guess since their computer doesn't show any messages. (side note...are there any mechanics left?) I changed the air filter, have tried different brand fuels. Any ideas? Thanks in advance, Rich
That was just a generic answer I do not know your particular car. Back in the day we put oil around the intake gaskets and if the engine speed increased or steaded we knew that we had found it. I also could be other things. Have you tried Carb/injector cleaner in with the gasoline? A vacuum leak could be too small to show on a vacuum gage but a person could look for or at least confirm a leak with the gage. Sorry I can not be of more help.
