Question about 2007 BMW 550i Sedan

1 Answer

I have a 2006 BMW 550i. This morning my Engine Service light came on. While I was backing out of the drive way I noticed I had a lot front end vibration in the engine area which never happens. As I started to press the accelerator to drive forward the front end of the car started to vibrate vigorously as if I were driving over little bumps in the road. This happened around 1and half and 2 thousand RPM's. When the car comes to a stand still it continues to vibrate like I'm in a muscle car. what could this be?

Sounds like its missing on one cylinder. Could be a failed plug or a blocked injector, or something more serious.

Call your dealer, who will likely suggest that you bring or more likely tow the car to them.

The dealer can scan the ECU for a fault code which will point to an accurate diagnosis.

How reset the flat tire on a 2006 bmw 550i

The tire pressure monitors I have seen require you to drive a certain distance after correcting the low pressure condition.I believe it uses the wheel speed sensors to detect a tire with low pressure(then one that is low will be essentially be giving a different reading because it is rotating more times at a given speed).I am assuming the system IS sensitive enough to get a false reading if one of the tires is a mismatched size,so keep this in mind.

Started driving my car this morning and immediately noticed that the clutch in my 2006 550i bmw felt funny, like it was easy to push. When I try to give it gas when taking off in first gear it shudders...

your clutch is slipping. this may be caused by worn pressure plate, clutch disc or oil seal failure. there are other components that may require attention, such as the clutch master and slave cylinders and fluid level.
