Hi Everyone

I have an s reg omega 2.5 v6 auto. Driving along for about 15 miles full of the joys of life everything is going fine then the engine just dies on me. I pull over and it starts first time and then dies on me again. Then its ok for a while and then cuts out again.

This is my first V Omega and I am a little worried. Any help would be much appreciated.

Johnny

Once had a motorcycle which had an identical problem. Turned out to be a sticking inlet valve when the engine was at full working temperature.

In fact I seem to recall one of those TV dogwatch programs some time ago which entitled a particular feature: how many enginers does it take to fix a BMW! It apparently suffered like yours and had a sticking valve. I think it was about the third or fourth visit by a car chappie that the fault was correctly identified.
