BMW 740i QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Replaced 20+ items on engine and it still runs rough as though it wants to stall out, it has left me stranded a couple times. The most likely problem is the timing chain rail is broken and maybe the tensioner and/or the gear and or vanos timing. Need to remove front of engine and replace problem...

Drive car for at least 15 min - not when it just turns on and idles - the car will stall when trying to reverse and now it stalls after coming to complete stop at stop light. Happens frequently now - shop says it is not throwing any codes. First time it happened the dash computer lights where mileage is went wacko - when car is cold it will go reverse no problem.
It works for a while then stops working until we restart car.. Then it shuts off again after awhile ..

my instrument panel had displayed that my brake light was on before the wiring connection going to the plastic component started to gushed smoke.
replaced spark plugs,TPS, and accelerator cable, but still not shifting as timely,or smoothly and idle, while improved quite a bit, is still getting "hung-up"(RPM stays high when braking then goes low in increments till full stop-sometimes the car will clunk, or wants to hop before final stop, then the RPM will settle @ approx. 500). One mechanic told me that the torque convertor is getting stuck!! Do I need to flush the tranny & change filter? or repairing the idle issue will solve the tranny issue? all this happens regardless of temp.,A/C being on, or other factors.
