Vehicle lost power. Dealer replaced high pressure fuel pump. I have been told that there was a bulletin on this and that I can expect the replacement pump to fail again in the twin turbo engine.
Traction control light on engine light on brake light on and the engine power is reduced and I can't even gas if I do it ahuts off and it only lets me go up to 40
HPFP failed and was replaced in March 2015. HPFP failed and replaced again in December 2015.
repeated fuel pump failure that requires replacement until the replacement fails.
I purchased the 335i on 12/5/15, one week later while driving to work the check engine light came on, causing the car to lose all power, I pulled over and re-started the car again, and a yellow triangle sign came on followed by a picture of a red car flashed on the dash, and all power was lost again, I stayed inside of the car for a few seconds, and re-start and slowly drove to work, going home from work the engine light came on followed by service engine soon, and most of the power was lost, luckily I was close to home, the next day I contacted the dealer, and brought the car in for four days, I was told that all diagnostic test was 100%. On 12/28/2015, I took the family for a ride and the same thing happened three times, this time in rush hour, again back to the dealer, now they are telling me that the problem was the car needed a high power fuel pump and this will definitely take care of the problem. For how long, let' see.
I have a oil leak,looks like at the top of the engine
All of the exact problems that are described here match what I'm dealing with. Emailed BMW USA customer real rooms and I'm calling them in the morning tomorrow. I just picked up my 2009 335i today
Stuttering upon ascending steep hills & slipping of transmission on going downhill steeply at stop. Check engine - reduced engine power light illuminated.
when I stepped on the gas the car lost torque and almost stopped but didn't i was able to drive slowly to my mechanic and he replaced fuel pump and gaskets etc - ! Whew 1,375 bucks . Was there a report out on my model just as the turbo problem which is supposed to be warranted till 100,000 miles
BOTH times my HPFP went out it started with longer than normal starts and then sudden death. It went in to limp mode and wouldn't start again.
