E81 BMW 118d stalled!!

Recommended Posts

the car is a 2011 model  E81 118d hatchback with 78k on the clock

i was stationary waiting to turn at a junction when the engine jerked and stalled.No warning light came up on the dash

the car started up easily and this has not happened again

i did a diagnostic and it came up with 2 fault codes

3FF0 -Airmass flow sensor

40E9-Exhaust gas recirculation controller,position control

 

i  deleted the codes and they have not come back yet and the car drove fine on a long journey.

 

what could have the  been the cause ?

i checked the codes and they are the same as before the first episode of stalling.

3FF0 -Airmass flow sensor

40E9-Exhaust gas recirculation controller,position control

 

any ideas what may be causing this/fix?

i replaced the crankcase breather hose which  was leaking and hopefully this will stop the stalling.

time will tell

so far the car has not stalled again,so it appears the dodgy breather hose was the culprit and replacing it has sorted the problem out:grin::cool:
