Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series
I have a 2000 BMW 328ci and every once and awhile the engine will die when i try to accelerate from a stopped position, but will start right back up with no problem whatsoever from neutral right after it. Also, my check engine light is on, but nothing seems to be wrong with the engine. And the computer chip was replaced with a new one, but the outside temperature on the control panel says its -40 degrees F, which is far from true. What could be the problems??
If the check engine light comes on there is a problem, the source of the problem that caused the check engine light to go on will set a code into the memory of the PCM (Powertrain Control Module), there are really just a few things that can cause this hesitation stall you experience, one is a dirty intake track and idle speed control valve, the other 2 items are the TPS (Throttle Position sensor) and the MAF (Mass Airflow sensor). The 1st thing i would recommend is a trip to Autozone or Kragen auto parts and have them run an OBD 2 trouble code test, they will do this for free. I also recommend you clean the intake by doing the following.
