Expensive fix

Can someone help me out I have a 2010 328 xi coupe right so my car about a month ago started rattling bad like it was getting bad gas so I brought it to a mechanic and he said it was the ignition coil fine costed me 3 something
Then 2 weeks ago I parked and was about to get out when my car just stalled out by itself
Brought it in and te guy said it was the fuel pump changed it out and that night it died on me again and the guy was like it was the fuel pump so I had it towed to him again and he said it was a chip or fuse so it ran fine for a week now it's dead again
It just all of a sudden stalled out and won't start again like it not getting gas or something anyone have or heard of this kind of problem ?????

See if this "mechanic" will read the codes off to you and post them here. I had my car randomly shutting off, it happened to be a broken aluminum bolt that grounded 3 of the coils. Are you out of warranty?

Man, how much do you trust this mechanic? I say go to a different one and check reviews.

So I talked to the mechanic shop just now one it turns out the first guy never changed the pump but the good news for everyone
BMW put out a bulletin saying something about the hose is bad on the cars and that they are getting replaced all you guys have to do is go to your BMW dealer and tell them the hoses are on back order cause all BMW will have to get changed

It is hard for me that is the only mechanic in my town that will touch a BMW I am stuck in the backwoods town in Louisiana with the army and nearest BMW dealers one hour away I don't have time to take off and go down there and take off for a BMW mechanic
But I found this mechanic is only 25 miles away and he is certified to Whickham BMWs and I got the good as those today he found out what the problem was he was very total took him two days and he said there was a bulletin from BMW something about the hoses being bad and they kept coming off and he said my palms got to get changed and the hoses and he's trying to order the hose but it's backordered because BMW has so many orders to fill it take a while to get sorry if you guys and having problems with the car starting sluggish like it's not Gano gas or SAAMI shutting off on you and it won't start it sounded to which a fuel pump hose and BMW issued bulletin that Dell replacing the hoses on the fuel pumps
