Since buying the car we have had battery issues. Had the battery programmed to the alternator, no luck. Seems to be a parasitic draw. Bmw dealer said it needs a new jdm console.
Was running fine then one day seemingly out of the blue it started stalling when idling or coasting. I pumped the gas and the clutch to keep me from stalling and get me to work. As soon as i got to work, parked & let the engine run. It didnt stall, enginge starting reving on its own going up to 2000 or 3000 rpms and back down again.
On the drive home couldn't get any power to the engine. Wouldn't go over 1500 rpms. Parked it, now its cranking but won't start.
Bought a bmw code reader, pulling different codes everytime, mostly related to throttle control issues.

Resevoir is full, and light still on. Sometimes it goes off, but generally remains on.
Feel it most when accelerating especially up hill. Believe vibration is in front.
i bought a 2002 330xi and had it for three days, i noticed it shifted hard into second gear but today i was driving uphill and i just lost power. it felt like the transmission was slipping, i was still able to accelerate but just about half as fast as normal. a light on the dash came on that was like a gear with a "!" inside of it. it did this then when i turned off the car for about 10 minutes it stopped doing that. and then it did it again and when i shut the car off again it stopped, any help witht this thankyou.
