A high mileage vehicle usually suffers from any number of maintenance related deficiencies. I would address the Fuel filter maintenance first. It's the cheapest and easiest of the solutions. Lack of fuel pressure under higher demand due to acceleration will result in a sluggish engine. The engine would idle fine and even run fine at high speed but would be sluggish under acceleration. Other more complecated solutions would be worn Ignition coils, Worn spark plugs, Timing belt stretched or jumped timing and the most expensive would be loss of compression in the cyllinders.

2006 BMW 750 Li My dynamic drive inactive light came on, then a generator fault light came on


BMW has been using electronically controlled automatic transmissions in most models since the late 80s. These transmission systems employ a transmission control unit which controls electrical solenoids to manipulate the various control and shift valves and functions in the transmission valve body. When the transmission control unit detects a problem that it thinks could be damaging to the transmission or engine, it goes into a fail-safe or limp mode. In this mode, the transmission will function in reverse normally, but in forward it will operate in only one gear (whether you have the shifter in D, or any of the lower gears). This will typically be 3rd or 4th gear, depending on the model. It will start in this gear and stay in this gear with no shifting. You would experience this as sluggish acceleration and higher than normal engine speed at about 40 mph and above.

If you must drive the vehicle when the transmission is in the fail safe mode, accelerate gently and keep the road speed lower than full highway speed.

Earlier models do not employ fault codes and must be diagnosed manually. Late models do employ fault codes and a diagnostic/scan machine can be used to check and read the faults to assist in diagnostics. Note that this is not your common OBDII engine management fault code tool. This is what A BMW dealer or a properly equipped independent shop would have for full vehicle system diagnostics and coding operations.

I have an 03 Jeep Grand Cherokee v6 2x2 with 170k... I'm having a couple of issues... 1. Occasionally will have trouble with cycling through gears when getting on Hwy causing decreased, sluggish...


I would consider changing the vehicle speed sensor. When they go bad, they can really throw out a lot of bad data to the computer, resulting in unexpected behavior like you're experiencing. They're only around $20-$25. I hope this helps! :)

Struggles on acceleration around 50mph


How many miles does this vehicle have on it? Has it been well-maintained or not? Is the fuel filter old, dirty, or plugged up? When were the spark plugs or plug wires last replaced? Has the air filter been checked? I'm not sure I can help you with a solution without a lot more information about what's going on with this vehicle. Could be any number of reasons for this problem. Did it begin start suddenly, or has it gradually gotten worse and worse?
You may want to start by checking for air, fuel, and spark. A plugged air filter will prevent the engine from breathing. At 50 mph+, it's going to need lots of air. A plugged fuel filter will restrict the flow of fuel at all speeds, but it will be more noticeable the faster you go. Worn plugs and plug wires cause a weak spark, which robs the engine of power.
You don't mention anything about the check engine light. If there was a misfire the light should have come on. It's possible the EGR valve may be stuck partially open. You could have one or more vacuum leaks somewhere. The PCV or the exhaust system could be restricted.
Whatever you discover, don't throw parts at it and hope it gets better. You will have to isolate the actual cause of the problem first.

Gauge light on?


Gauge light illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red – again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter.

Momentarily Sluggish Acceleration


Are you loosing power to the ecu when the car is shut down? most cars with an ECU that controls timing, fuel, or boost can be forced to relearn the car if the ECU looses power (called a "limp" mode). I'd look into this. Also are you getting any check engine lights? considering the description of the problem, this would help to diagnose. Try getting the car started and running normally, then turn the car off but do not kill the power to the car, just stop the motor from running...Fire the engine back up and try to give the car a good stomp on the gas and see if you get the same sluggish problems...my 2 cents... Good luck future auto DIY's
