Engine cuts out when approaching a roundabout or junction, when slowing and clutch is down. Changed the speed sensor a few months ago which we thought had worked, problem came back yesturday


hi...
this is may be due to the idealing problem.set the idealing in correct amount so that it doesnt stops.

considering the speed sensors check any signal comin to the sensing unit is getting intruppted.

i think only these are the problem wihch may be the reason

Hi my 320 keeps stalling at low revs. It has cut out on me approaching a junction and also stationary at a junction but then i can leave it running no problem? Can you help with this 'intermitant' annoying...


is it happening only when the brakes are applied? if so there could be a vacuum leak somewhere causing it, check all the vacuum lines to ensure they are all tight and secure.

Ford Escort (1993) (EFi engine) starts, then stalls.


The fuel pump in the petrol tank has a sock that acts as a coarse filter. This sock gets clogged with muck causing the car to starve of fuel intermittently and lead to the stalling as you've described. If you pour in some injector cleaner (contains detergents) or methylated spirits it may just fix the problem. Condensation (water) in the fuel creates a slimy goop that clogs filters. It worked for me and my 1992 Daihatsu Charade, and have heard that other cars with similar symptoms have been cured in the same way, usually after expensive repairs have already proved unsuccessful . A cheap solution really! Try this first. Good Luck.

BMW 316 L reg, car stalls and dies when changing down approaching a junction, I have to leave it for a number of hours, then it will start. This is doing my head in.


I had a friend who bimmer did this. It was the sensor that goes to the air cleaner. I can't remember what is is called specifically, but check with your BMW parts man and he will know.
