Car lurched, check engine light came on, and then cleared...

So I was in 4th gear, cruise set at 55 or so and the car lurched. Almost like if in a manual car you took your foot off the gas and then kinda stabbed the throttle. I thought for a second that I maybe hit a small rodent... Get to a red light and the car is idling funny and then BING check engine light comes on.

I pull over, turn the car off and then back on to see if it would clear. The light is still on when the car starts back up... So I pop the hood and grab my flashlight to look for anything obvious, and everything looks fine. So I get back in the car and look at the dash and the light is now off. Ninja status.....

I have driven about 50 miles now after the light went out and the car seems fine.

Anyone else have an experience like this?

Sounds like hpfp lost pressure. I had that exact feeling on the track ~120mph in 4th gear. It felt like I lost all power. Went into limp mode till I restarted it.

It was a rather loud "clunk"

I'm thinking misfire. There isn't anyone on this forum that can help you without pulling some codes

It could have shadow codes.

Most of the HPFP codes are shadow.

I got my HPFP replaced when my Indy pulled the shadow codes... I took my car to the dealer with the printout and they replaced the pump.

Yeah autozone doesn't have a BMW code reader. It won't pull any BMW specific codes, just generic ones.
