F20 116i flat and hesitant

Post by GarryK » Mon Jan 22, 2018 9:14 pm


116i when cold can be a pain. Sure it misfires occasionally and when I set off and go from first to second the acceleration is smooth then stops and then picks up again.

Like the pedal is depressed and pressed again

Also I’m sure when you’re on light throttle. Say 30mph in 4th you can feel it misfire and being hesistant.

I’ve not had any warnings on the dash.

I don’t have Carly or similar.

So any common faults that could be pointed out?
