    Exclamation BMW E46 Switches off While Driving

    I have an E46 Tiptronic that used to switch off and BMW said it was my pulse Generator which costed my R5322.43

    My car used to do the following:

    Switches Off while Driving
    Drinks Fuel (Petrol) and get very Low Milege
    Take very long to start on the second start when engine is Warm.
    Car was Very Very Sluggish.

    But now all the mentioned items are fixed with the Price mentioned Above.

    I think its your Flux Capacitor.....

    BMW should be able to give you a quote on one, and they don't take too long to replace either, about 45 minutes or so.

    I'd go with the Flux Capacitor... its a much easier fix than the Crankshaft sensor.....

    It also can't hurt to get a new Flux Capcitor.. it'll improve overall fuel economy as well.

    They're intelligent, no doubt..

    But most of them will miss the Flux Capacitor being the issue... they'll probably all go for the Lamda sensor or something completely benign

    The part number you're looking for is : B001M5PTQM

    I would be careful though.. the E46 has a very specialised Flux Capacitor.
    You don't want them to give you the one that was in the E36 or below models as they're a very different model, and the new BMWs such as the E90 have a much smaller model, it has the same inputs and outputs, but is a serious cow to mount on the E46.

    I replaced my Flux Capacitor in my e36 but it is not working I can only travel forward at 1 second at a time, maybe i need a different fuel source .
