SOURCE: Revs ''hunt'' on tickover, sometimes revs drop so low car cuts out

Thanks to some advice I have fixed the problem with my Granada. The pipe work from the exhaust manifold to the inlet manifold has a short piece of plastic pipe which needed replacing. This seems to have done the trick.

I would like to thank you for running this site. Without it I would still be re-starting my car each time I stop at a red light!

Hello there

If you drive an automatic and it starts to judder at low speeds than that means you transmission isn't down shifting as the speed is reduced. In the first instance you should get your transmission oil changed.

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

SOURCE: where is the oil filter located on the bmw 116i

right at the front in the middle below plastic housing. Has 1 large plastic cap on a metal lower casing, not metal bodied like old oil filters just has filter element. Also replace 'O' rings that should come with the new filter as the old will have squared off or become perished. I think you need a 27mm socket to undo the filer housing.

I have a 318i 1992 bmw and i can get reverse when the engine is cold but when the engine is hot i have to rev the car to 2500 + revs before it will go into reverse. please advise

When was last time trans filter & fluid was changed? Should be done every 30k/3 years. Hopefully you didn't damage trans by "revving" I'd start there, and when you have trans pan off, inspect magnet in pan for metal shavings.

It sounds like an inlet manifold seal. Try to rev the engine up to about 1500 revs, if it runs ok, then it's either that or your air-flow mass meter

'97 540i spluttering & cutting out

best bet is to go get any codes that may be stored in the PCM. This will take alot of the guess work out of diagnosing it. Or remove the spark plgs and replace them.. If you have 50,000 or more this could be the cause but a code may tell you which one is the issue
