1997 BMW 328i Base 6 Cyl 2.8L
Sputtering & Shut Off
I have a '97 BMW 328i Sedan (156, 000mi) that has been running awesome until 2 weeks. It first backfired. Now, it sputters when idle and sometimes cuts off upon deceleration. In reverse, it becomes very difficult to keep the car on.
With the limited info that you have given... I would start with the fuel filter. Next be the fuel pressure at the rails then the fuel pump. It sounds like a fuel delivery problem.
