BMW 320i jerking/loss of power/over revs

Hi guys,

Recently joined this forum in search for an answer....

I bought my first ever BMW (320i 50k) in July 2014. I had an Audi A3 2.0TDI which was an amazing car and never let me down.

320i SE 57 REG only 50k.

The 320i was my dream car, a gift to myself after graduation :-)

After buying the BMW, 2 months into driving it I noticed the following issues:
Jerking in gears 1/2/3
Loss of power when I put my foot down - almost like the engine is skipping a beat
Once at 10mph in 2nd the car jerked and cut off resulting in the engine management light coming on
Usually in the the first gear, occasionally I find the car revving quite high before moving off.

Gave it to a BMW specialist - diagnostics identified many sensors came up - cleared the memory and took it back two weeks later after the light came on that the NOX sensor was faulty. Replaced it at 450 and still same issues.

I feel extremely let down. After reading much on the 320i, these were common faults I gathered...

Common Problems:

Fuel Injectors
Coil Packs
High Pressure Fuel Pump
Spark Plugs
NOX Sensor
Cam Shaft Sensor
Vanos

Anyone with similar issues?

I don't feel there is a fairly straight forward answer for this issue. According to others who have paid out 0000's to fix the problem, the problem still hasn't been solved.

Sell your dream car and buy a normal car such as 325, 330, 335 i/d.

Just want to say that the 325i suffers some of the same problems. Can we jump on the bandwagon? Lol.

I have just bought a 2009 LCI 318i, with the N43 2.0l engine. (before anyone spits flames, I got it REALLY cheap!)

I bought it with a misfire that comes and goes. When cold it is at its worst, with the gearstick and cabin vibrating at idle. After it warms up it gets better but is still bad, however sometimes it disappears almost completely and pulls hard to the redline, but most of the time it is a pig to drive, with no power and struggling to rev/idle.

I have proof the previous owner replaced the Coilpacks, Plugs and injectors, Both fuel pumps and High and low pressure senders, plus both lambda's with genuine parts. He has told me that only the NOX sensor was yet to be replaced.

I have INPA, and a full scan shows 3 main codes - cylinder 1 + 3 misfire, and random multiple misfires probably caused by the first two codes.

I really dont want to fork out 300 for a sensor to find out it does naff all!

And I find diagnosing bits with INPA a lot harder than working with VCDS for VAG cars!

Any ideas chaps?

Thanks, Tony.

This thread has died off over the past few months...

Makes me wonder whether everyone has jumped ship, or the revised BMW parts fitted actually solved the issues.

Thanks
