A very common problem .you have 6 fuel injectors that are like tiny electrical solenoids.with a resistance of about 12.4 ohms.there is probably one that is not ohming out correctly probably around 7.5ohms or so .please take to a trusting shop so each injector can be ohmed out.if low they will have to replace the bad injector or injectors.when they become lower resistance they will short out and shut off the injector driver in the computer then it will stall some times wont start back right away!

Bmw 320 d 150 bhp rough idling when starting cold

seems like theres a build up of carbon in the intake. you can try the pour in gas tank cleaners for fuel injection cars which you have and after 2 or 3 of those with 2 or 3 full tanks it will clean the injectors and the carbon out of the intake. And if you really want to get them cleaned up even better and stop all the rough idling, take the intake off yourself and clean all the black stuff off anywhere you see it. Thats the carbon build up. Especially on the butterfly valve area. It will not only run better for you but get better gas mileage as well.

Engine/Transmission problem. Rough-running engine

Get the codes read. you will get a better idea of where to start testing to repair this one. Most auto parts stores will do this for little or nothing. Please get back to me and we can trouble shoot this together.

Engine stops randomly

sounds you have a vacuum leak. Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU

Possibility of a vacuum leak somewhere around your engine. That would cause what you are experiencing and cause a check engine light as well.

Good luck.

My 1998 Volvo S70 occasionally dies at stop lights or in heavy traffic. It will go weeks without a problem but then die repeatedly and I can barely keep it running long enough to get off the highway or...

I hear that, about parts not necessary. Quite a discrepancy among those mechanics. All I could say is to find a mechanic who is familiar with Volvos.
My suggestion,. without knowing what codes were given, is that possibly your throttle body needs cleaning. This is where the air enters the engine, and carbon or fuel deposits tends to build up there. It can get black and dirty over time, and cause problems like rough idle or hesitation.
But anyway, find a smart and honest mechanic-not always easy, but they should be better than guessing after getting the codes.

Rough idle, cruise control also stopped working

Sounds like you could have gotten some water in your fuel tank from that fill up. Go to a autoparts store and get a product to put in the tank that takes care of water in fuel. Use it when you fill the tank up a few times after and hopefully it goes away. Whenever you can't sustain power in the engine or it runs rough then your cruise control will constantly be shut off because the engine doesn't have the power to keep the speed up and should go away once your engine is running clean again.

Good Luck

2005 monte carlo seems to run rough / misfire when warm.

Remove your ignition module and take it to a parts house to be tested. This is common behavior for a failing module after it gets warm. Have them check it several times to insure it gets hot during testing.
