Bmw 3.0 x5 hesitation problems

2008 and 2009 bmw 3.0 x5 hesitation problems. Severe hesitation upon accelerating at low speeds, passing at high speeds...when stepping onto the gas pedal there is very often a severe hesitation, sometimes as much as a 2 or 3 SECOND delay before the engine kicks in to pass. VERY VERY dangerous! HELP! BMW Canada says this is a charcteristic of this vehicle. If this vehicle drove like this on test drives they would never be able to sell it.

Sound like throttle position sensor.have it check out.also check air duct connected to mass air flow sensor and throttle body.if air duct is loose or off.it will cause severe hesitation.

You step , leave the gas pedal , (you may engage sport)and re-step the pedal (so no turbo lag will be felt)

Use 92 octane gas. These cars don't like 87 octane. The computer retards the engine timing which causes the hesitation. If the computer did not ****** the timing you would get valve ping or engine knock.

This is a common problem with the 3.0 with throttle by wire. It can be solved by a dealer reflash of the computer. There are also after market programs available in the $200 -300 range

Your throttle problem is likely due to a bad throttle position sensor, it isn't "reporting" back to the computer of your change in speed correctly.
Doesn't work as in no output, low output, what.

I have a 1998 nissan 200 sx 1.6L engine and the car hesitates while accelerating. The engine light is not on and there are no codes. It will accelerate slowly with just a little pressure on the gas pedal....


SOULDS LIKE EXCESSIVE EXHAUST BACK PRESSURE CAUSED BY A RESTRICTED CAT CONVERTOR. SHOULD HAVE NO MORE THAN 1.5 TO 3 PSI CHECKED AT THE O2 SENSOR AT IDLE AND AT 2500 RPM. THE CONVERTOR CAN BECOME DAMAGED IF UNBURNT FUEL ENTERS IT. THIS IS CAUSED BY TUNE UP CONCERNS USUALLY.

Hesitation on acceleration engine runs fine otherwise


My 99 Audi A4 2.8 Quattro was havinga problem starting at times. It would idle poor upon start and then it would come up in rpm where it should be. I had hesitation from a start and after coasting for more than 5-8 seconds, the car would shake violently upon acceleration at about 1/3 throttle. I cleaned the Mass Air Flow Sensor. This helped but did not solve all my problems. I then replaced the Mass Air Flor Sensor. Little to no change there ($108.00). Lastly, I replaced the spark plugs. I bought Bosch plugs ($4.82 ea.). This got rid of all the symptoms. I had bad lugs and possibily a dirty MAF!
