This could be a fuel issue,like clogged filter,injector,or spark plug issue,has car been serviced meaning plugs wires,etc?


Yes, had tune up by momentum BMW. This problem occurred weeks after that. Fuel filter wasn't changed. I was told my some sources the transmission may need to be serviced?

Might be that it does need servicing,but i think i would change the fuel filter first.


This car boost alot of fuel when changing between these two gear,s,after that it runs, smooth,try it first,then if no change,have it serviced.


Ok will do, can u recommend a particular brand filter as I'm sure most vehicles perform better with certain types and brands?
