You need to replace brakes you are ruining the rotors.have fuel filter change.if stall out again have fuel pump pressure tested.because they are expensive dont buy one if you dont need it.

Try checking the fuel pressure valve & vacuum hoses, I'm unsure about your model, The fuel pressure valve has 2 very small rubber O rings & they over time perish - there are 2 types that I can recall - 1 is a sealed unit & the other has a Cir lip. If yours is that later when you remove that clip there is a larger rubber ring on the shaft - take note at what position that ring was facing on removal. Seal unti can only be replaced. Hope that helps, good luck

Why dose my bmw 3srz 1995 stalls while driving then then cranks but wont start for about 5 min what to do tdo to fi?

Ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,faults could be anything for this problem although i would suspect that the petrol pump could be faulty or the electrical connections to the pump which is under the back seat behind a cover which allows access to the pump /sender unit ,could also be the elcetrical connection on the unit playing up as well so look for burnt connections in the socket to this unit

Car stalling out and bot starting after being driven for awhile.

mcdevito75 Here, It"s possible the ignition Module is going bad, no way to test and if so, one day the car will not start at all.----------It can also be a vapor loc, wher the fuel is evaporating before it reaches the cylinders. Best Bet, have your local shop check both these items.

Bmw 325i 2003 stall

Sounds like you have a small bit of dirt or grit in the fuel system when accelerating it is drawn with enough force to cut off the fuel supply then is released when engine at Idle.
1 run liquid fuel line/injector cleaner in 1 tank
2 check fuel lines for debris
3 change fuel filters
4 have fuel tank flushed
here is trouble shooting order less expense to greater.

1995 bmw 3251 hard to start after warm up sometimes the hazrd light will come on when it wont start let it sit for a couple hours start right up run perferct when driving

I have this very same problem. When i try to start ot after it warms up i just get a wirling sound. After about 2 hours when it has cooled down it will start fine. The problem is the starter motor. The solinoids exspand when hot and lose contact because of the heat fom the engine. This is a classic starter motor problem when they are on their last legs. The only other thing it could be is the brushes loosing contact. Either way just replace the starter and it will be fine.
