Diesel Beamer Judder - elebe
My 2001 525 diesel engine judders like it's misfiring or running on 5 cylinders. This happens when you stop it and start it again after sitting for 10/15 mins with the engine hot. It goes after 5 to 10 minutes at idle or if you hold the revs at 1500/2000 for a few minutes. Occassionally it hapens in third when you accelerate through 1500/2000 rpm and it feels like you loose power.
I think it is fuel related, could it be air in the common rail or foaming or the injectors or loss of pressure in the rail?
I also wonder if the air sensors are playing up.

Surprise surprise my BMW garage cannot find the fault!
Any ideas?

Contact another garage and see if they have had the problem before, contact BMW UK.

If that fails, buy a Citroen C5, nearly as big, more comfy and super diesels!
