Question about 2008 BMW 530i
Hello thank you for your detailed information. I am doing some research on your issue and would like to ask you 1st, if it seems like there is any pattern to this issue meaning does it seem to happen more when the car is warm or cold, while going up hill/ down hill, etc. Also, what, if any, troubleshooting have you completed? Have any controllers, sensors, etc been ruled out. You can start by start by verifying the oil level make sure its not blackened, "glitery" or burned smelling. Beyond that I will have to continue my research and wait for a response from you. Any and all details will be useful. Thank you for using www.fixya.com We look forward to getting you back on the road properly! -Tim

I had similar issues on mine. I bought it from the Good Will for less than $1000. :)
It's been totaled i believe at least twice.
Anyways, replace the fuel filter. It's about the size of an oil filter and is very easy to replace.
Also, replace the spark plugs with some good titanium type plugs. They're like $4 from Wal Mart.
Next, put some fuel injector cleaner every other tank of gas or so. This will definitely help.

Unfortunately you have a hydraulic clutch, which is self adjusting on your car.
The problem you are experiencing is the excessive wear to your clutch, or oil contamination on the clutch plate.
Both these problems can only be fully diagnosed once the gearbox is removed and the clutch is inspected.
There is also a possibility of excessive wear, or scoring, on the flywheel surface, the longer you drive the vehicle with a slipping clutch, possibly requiring the flywheel to be skimmed.
Shop around for a best price, and a trustworthy garage !
Good Luck !
A FixYa rating would be Nice....Thanks.....John.

Has anyone change the transmission fluid and used anything other than Honda ATF-Z1. If so, have the fluid/filter changed in this car and use only Honda Fluid. This is the only fluid that you can use in a Honda. Even if you have used the correct fluid an fluid/filter change may help. If that is not the case then I suggest you seek out a trusted professional.

With any vehicle that has a hydraulic clutch, a worn master cylinder or slave cylinder will give this very symptom. First step is to check the fluid in the resivor. If it is low, you will want to check for fluid bypassing the seals. Be sure to check under the rubber dust cover as fluid can collect there and not be readily visible. Also, if the fluid in the resivor is dark colored, it is an indication of the internal seals going bad and you will need to replace the cylinders.

I have a s40 1.9d / 2000 plate,
In the last month or so the car loses revs when changing up to 3rd and 4th gear, I can only get 50 mph max in 3rd gear 80mp in 4th.
The car has just clocked 185,000 miles
Its a great car but a pai at the moment, I've had a service including fuel fillter change added fuel cleaners to the deilsel all to no avail
