2001 BMW 325i problem: Car runs very rough, but no warning lights

2001 BMW 325i problem: After driving for 3-10 minutes (driving between 35-60mph), the car starts to run really rough, steering wheel pulses/shakes, engine and the whole front of car vibrates, feels like the motor is knocking. No warning lights on dashboard at any time. RPMs stay around 2000. The car doesn't lose power. Temperature gauge is fine (in the middle). It doesn't change if I brake or give more gas. This lasts for about 5 minutes, and then the car runs fine for the next 10-15 minutes. What can this be???

Sounds like a fuel problem , have you changed the fuel filter in a while ? could be the knock sensor or the knock sensor module needs to be replaced.

My 2001 bmw 325i doesn't have power no light no radio and the interior lights are all off


Sounds like you have a dead battery. Try recharging the battery or get someone with jumper cables to give you a jump. If your battery dies again after driving for at least an hour you likely need a new battery. If the battery in the car is the original, it's time to replace it anyway.

Check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and


The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).
