Explanation:

According to my research and the BMW master mechanic, basically your oxygen sensor is getting an abnormal reading. The abnormal reading will result in the sensor being unable to adapt beyond its +/- 10% threshold to adapt for the fuel/trim mixture. Therefore, either your car is going to run too lean (not enough fuel) or too rich (too much fuel).

Problems:

1) Either your pre-cats oxygen sensors are bad.
2) Fuel pressure regulator
3) Leak in the air intake /vacuum system

I would think that it is probably your oxygen sensors. Replace that and you should be good to go. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

2001 bmw x5 3.0 fuel trim permissible range exceeded bank 1 and bank 2


You have a small air leak. The fuel trim kept increasing to compensate until it exceeded the allowable range. Change the valve cove gasket and valve cove bolt gaskets. check for leeks around intake manifold.

My 2001 525td starts and drives ok but intermittently it wont go above 3000 rpm,if you stop and switch it off it goes ok again for a short while


HI, your car is most likely going into limp mode. The number one cause of this computer shut down restriction- is a Mass-Air Flow sensor malfunction. Fuel trims become erratic and the engine computer puts a order in to limit performance until the original problem is resolved. The fact that you can get performance back after shutting down car and restarting is that the computer is rebooting and most likely the sensor is now functioning properly and or has not set the number of faults required for limp mode. What I would do is have someone with a scanner look for DTC's or engine problem codes, and remember the following: Lean or Rich fuel trims detected bank 1 bank 2 (is a Mass Air flow problem)Replace Mass Air flow sensor assembly. Accelerator position high or low and or erratic is most likely (Pedal sensor) Replace Pedal assembly. Good Luck.

Service engine soon light mean on a 2001bmw 330ci auto


This is a mileage comtrolled light and the oxagen sensers and other sensers are to be checked and or replaced with new ones. The old sensers are likly to be OK but for best performance they should be changed anyway as failure causes all kinds a mixture problems that if left unrepaired can kill the car nd or cuse very expensive emission control repairs that can be avoided.

2000 bmw 323i P0173 & P0170 trouble codes


Hello There

These are very common codes on BMW's which can also be false codes, try clearing the codes and run the test again they may not come up again.
With regards to the sound which you thought was a vacum leak there a breather pipe which runs under the plastic engine cover near the injectors which always gets a tear init which will need replacing.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.
