Re: Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

The car just had a valve adjustment done in August :sigh: I've been meaning to go through the VANOS and do the seals and pump disc. It's good to know that there are still active members who have...

I ordered two new TPS sensors. I'll report back with my findings.

Edit: I previously attempted running the car with no MAF and the issue persisted.

Re: Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

They were in the right order. Flipped them around and the car was misfiring left and right.

Re: Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

When I was looking into this issue I came across someone else who flipped theirs with the same hesitation. When I swapped them from the old headers I was pretty careful. I'll try flipping them and...

Re: Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

I did reach out to BuildJournal immediately after my first drive. They didn't think it was their tune, and I don't blame them. They sent me a modified version that didn't have any effect on the issue...

Re: Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

Would that still be the case if the issue occurs at 2800-3000 RPM? There's power up until then, and power after that, so it only falls flat during that range. Also, aren't failing VANOS solenoids...

Re: Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

The car came with an aFe intake as well, so I took the liberty of cleaning it yesterday. Caked in grime, yet cleaning it did nothing :cry:

I haven't gone near the IACV though. I'll have to add...

Hesitation at 2,500-3,200 RPM

Hey everyone,

Over the last few weeks, I've been tearing my hair out over an ongoing issue my car's been having. As I continue to try and diagnose one of the vaguest issues, with no codes to go...

Re: Gabe's 2006 M3 Silver Grey/Cinnamon ZCP Journal

Alright, probably time I update this as to my ongoing search for why my car is hesitating.

First and foremost, I replaced my spark plugs, which didn't actually look too bad.

Second, I...

Re: Gabe's 2006 M3 Silver Grey/Cinnamon ZCP Journal

So, whilst the car is still tucked away for winter, I figured I might as well take the time and update this with the biggest and most persistent issue that has yet to be addressed.

Re: Stupid Simple: Remove & Plug Post-Cat O2 with Headers?

Yup! All you need to do is remove the O2's entirely, and plug the bungs on the headers (as long as you tune out for them obviously). You want to keep that bracket that holds all the O2's in place...
