Question about BMW 328
Engine stalls at iddle, MAF sensor changed still stalls. I have disconnected MAF, engine runs perfectly fine. Ofcourse noticed fuel consumption is much higher. Please tell me what may cause engine stall.
When the MAF sensor is disconnected, the computer run the air flow mgt. in a kind of safe mode which might affects the fuel efficiency.
Let's assume you replace with the correct MAF sensor. Check the harness for any damage or shorts. You may also want to check the intake air temperature sensor (IAT). This could also affect the idle and the computer uses its feedback with that of the MAF to control idling among other things

SOURCE: stalls when put into gear
Its possible it could be other things causing the problem, but seeing as you've checked most of the likely causes, it is most likely your Torque-Converter. The lockup clutch in your Stator-Fan located inside the Torque-Converter could be siezed, causing the car to stall.

the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.

try this procedure and let me know if it cures the problem.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
