Depending on your mileage, you may need to refurbish your turbo as its on its way out if your getting very low power or you can remap. I have got mine remapped to 120 bhp and mpg/torque is awsome.

I'd at least check it out - all the power for the locking is routed through the driver's door before distributing throughout the car. I'm not sure about BMW but my Audi uses a vacuum pump for the locks - for some reason, they decided to use an electrically-triggered pump to control the locks. If your BMW is the same, it could be a broken vacuum line, which can be a bear to trace down, or it could be that the pump itself has died (that happens to the Audis). If you have one nearby, stop at AutoZone or another auto parts store and take a look at the Haynes manual for your car (they have them on the shelves), and see if the car has a vacuum-operated system. Check your switch assembly out, maybe swap another one in if you know someone else who has a similar car (see if you can borrow theirs for a few minutes to try it out), or get one at a salvage yard for about $10, and if that doesn't do it, then I'd start to suspect a vacuum pump. You may also find information at www.bmwforums.com - it's an owner/enthusiast site that is free to join and has tremendous amounts of knowledge in its member base.

I'm sorry I can't be more help than that - I just haven't done much work on BMWs is all:(

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

I am assuming your transmission is a 5speed manual. What is the tachometer reading when you experience this jerking in 5th gear? It sounds like the engine is being lugged. If you are trying to pull a hill or accelerate in 5th gear at less than 40 or 45mph, you need to downshift to a lower gear.

Ive got an bmw 316 compact when pulling away from traffic lights, t-junction car jerks alot


High possibility the maf sensor needs dervicing or replace. you can clea it yourself with electrical spray cleaner CRC brand. It is located inside the intake duct in a metal section. Do not brush or rub to clean. Use the spray to thoroughly wash off the sensor, It is sensitive and expensive to replace so be nice to it.
The spray will dry fast so don't use compressed air and don't physically touch the unit. Good Luck, Ned
