This symptom would be caused by a clogged fuel filter. It is on under the car on the driver's side near the tank. It will look like a cannister and is connected to the fuel lines. You will have to depressurize the fuel system. To do this, open you hood and find the fuse box on the driver's side near the battery. Open the box and remove the fuel pump relay. It will labeled as such. Pull it straight out. Now turn on your engine till it stalls.

Now you can safely remove your fuel filter. Wear eye protection. Unclip the fuel filter from the lines using a screwdriver withouth damaging the fuel liens. Unbolt from frame and twist fuel filter out. Not the direction of the arrow. Replace with new on with arrow pointing in the same direction. Now twist in and bolt on. Clip to the frame using the new clips provided with the filter. Connect fuel pump relay and start engine. Thanks for using Fixya.

Car runs fine just quits


Does this have a "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light on? If so, get the codes pulled and post them back here along with the engine info. If no codes are present then it may well be a bad crankshaft sensor. I have seen many of these give intermittent problems (usually heat related) and do exactly what you have described without setting a code.

Hello there

Yet another 330i that just die's for no reason. It's a very common problem with MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor. The next time it dies just unhook the MAF sensor which sits on the large black pipe that goes from you air filter to the engine, black square thing. The engine should start and drive fine but you should change the MAF when possible.

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