Problem when driving hard..

This is the 2nd time this has happened to me. And it's honestly pissing me off.

If I do a couple of hard pulls from say 20-60 ish... All of a sudden my SES light comes on. Then the car starts running rough until I shut it down and power it back on. I know it's purely speculation, but since the error is gone what could it be?

thanks!

Could be a number of things(i.e., HPFP, Coils, Injectors,...). Worst case scenario could be the turbos but since car shakes I'd say fuel system.

If the condition lasts longer than 4 hours, please get mechanical help as soon as possible.

it feels like a mis-fire for sure. but my question is, why does shutting it down and firing it back up make it go away?

That can't be possible?

When my injectors were going bad, turning it off and restarting always seemed to do the trick.

Ok, i appreciate it. So replacing all of your injectors solved your problem...

Any idea how much this would cost out of warranty?

Get someone to read the codes. It might not 100% be the injectors.

I had 1 injector go in December. $400 w/ labor. Had the same problem last week. Was throwing codes in 3 other injectors; and suggested I might as well replace the other 5 to avoid more labor charges so I did. That was $1,400.

I then called BMWNA and told them my situation. My car is just out of warranty, and I told them of my previous fuel system problems: 3 HPFPs, with 1 under recall, and a LPFP. Also, the 2008 injectors were under recall, but not the 2009s... kinda shady. BMW stepped up, and paid for all the parts, so I am getting a $1,000 refund now.

Guess who is buying an extended warranty??? This guy. Carchecx
