Engine problem?

Accelerating in 3rd gear and when it reaches 5.000 or 5.500rpm the engines seems to halt a little bit and then continues normally till you engage 4th gear...

What do you think this halt may be?

Just as when I found my car, they changed it.

Fuel issues perhaps, try putting BG fuel additives/ejector cleaners

Do you mean injector cleaners?


What you are saying makes sense...

I started to notice yesterday that it happens also in other gears...

I dont live in US so here in my country the quality of the fuel is not very good.

I think that maybe this low qualiy fuel is causing the problem. I ordered BG 44k to clean up the engine and injectors and other additives to add it to the fuel on each fill up.

So I used the BG 44k in the car. Nothing has change.

Last weekend I was on the road and the car was ok until it suddendly turns on EML light on, brake light in yellow color and the DSC and limit the car to low speed, it is like a protection mode . I pulled aside turned it off and when I turned it on again it was fine.

Tha car was storage for a long time, the first owner used it very rarely, so I got the car into the bmw shop for a complete general checked, until next week I will have no answer from them.
