BMW 318 si 2002 engine cuts out

Hi can anyone help me I have a E46 2ltr which has started intermittently cutting out & will not start for about 30 min. When it cuts out all warning lights light up. it went on diagnostic & came up with numerous errors including camshaft timing - too late, engine speed sensor - no signal, ECU - signal error, camshaft posisition sensor (intake) - speed signal error, camshaft timing - too early (both A & B). When reset the car will drive fine for about 1 hr then will do the same again. I've been told it could be the crankshaft sensor or camshaft sensors, does anyone know if this would cure the problem or if it could be something more serious? any help would be appreciated

Golf gti runs for 7 min then cuts out


It could be your coil unit. They can operate intermittently like that. try cooling it down with water/air (a bit risky) when you suspect the car is going to cut out. Even the coil pack is not overheating it could still be faulty (not properly earthing) try swopping the pack with a friend's one.

1990 Buick LeSabre cutting off, getting no spark, 30 mins starts


Replace crank sensor. Next time it cuts off pour or spray water on it, to cool it down and if car starts that is what it is. I did this to get my car home to fix it. Next thing I would look at is the coil module if crank sensor does not fix it.

F350 super duty,engine cuts out without warning


Check to see if your truck was recalled for a faulty cam shaft sensor. Some sensors develop hair line cracks which allow contaminants to get in and the sensor becomes intermittent. The symptoms can include sudden shutdown of the engine so a recall was issued.
