Check the EGR valve. If it is defective it causes engine revving up and down.

Engen problem and missing

Sir, your question is not very clear, but I will still try to post a solution here. Engine missing could be due to any problem in fuel system, ignition system, engine or ECM as well.

-Throttle body (do the cleaning and idle speed learning)
-A /C signal circuit
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump
-Intake system
-P C V valve (clogged or open) and hose

-Cylinder Compression
-Ignition system (Igniters, spark plugs, wiring harness)
-Spark plug fouled, gap too wide or too short. (1.00-1.1 mm)
-Fuel injector circuit
-E C M power source circuit
-Fuel pump control circuit
-Fuel pump (required pressure 44 psi - 49 psi)
-Throttle body (cleaning)
-Intake system
-P C V valve and hose
-Air fuel ratio sensor
-Heated oxygen s ens or
-Mass air flow meter
-Idle hunting

1979 bmw 528i starting problem

This vehicle uses a thermotime switch for the cold start valve,located on the radiator,but you say you have fuel pressure and volume so go to the Vane airflow meter, when the airflow meter sweeps open it gives more fuel. so you need to make sure the vane air flow meter can sweep without interruption.

Hi I have a 2001 BMW 520i. It wont start. Stopped whilst driving felt like I had run out of fuel. I have had fuel pump changed fuel filter changed spark plugs coil leads. Pressure tested and fuel is there...

Never rule out sensors, based on the fact they sometimes
work or you have spark

You need an oscilloscope and look for milli second
misses and spikes

Use the scope on everything,fuel pump etc

P reg 520i, water is not going round the engine, changed the water pump & thermo, heater not blowing warm, but not overheating.

if its not overheating your water is circulating and working normally
your heater core or rad could be airlocked open a top heater hose and fill slowly making sure no air in system run for a while then top up can take a while to clear the air
also make sure heater valve is operating

Hello there :
Inspect for dust or contaminants on the sensor: see the picture with the arrow.
Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between terminals THA and E2. Resistance: At -20 °C (-4 °F) 13.6 - 18.4 KOhm At 20 °C (68 °F) 2.21 - 2.69 KOhm At 60 °C (140 °F) 0.49 - 0.67 KOhm

2. Inspect the intake air flow meter operation.

1. Connect the intake air flow meter connector.
2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
3. Using a voltmeter, connect the positive (+) tester probe to terminal VG, and negative (-) tester probe to terminal E2G.
4. Blow air into the intake air flow meter, and check that the voltage fluctuates.

Diagnoses : 2002 745i bmw ( hot-film air-mass flow senser )

Hot-film air mass sensor when diagnose say is damaged, replace it!!! Trouble when car will take up to 5.sec. is associated with this! Bank 1, the accumulated value of lambdasond the left side of the engine cylinders. While the problem is in the ignition at the 4th cylinder, Bank-1 data were then evaluated as poor. Allow change fourth ignition coil and the CAN mistake Dont look it! is an accidental fault! eventually allow for BMW servicing erase all the mistakes and make a new adaptation of the engine throttle body, and adaptation of the engine in to "0" setting
