Asked by Jun 09, 2008 at 10:03 PM about the 2001 BMW X5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 x5 that occasionally will not start. the engine turns over, but then the rpms just drop and the car shuts off. since it does not happen all the time it is hard to diagnose at the mechanics. Has anyone had this problem before? Or have any ideas about what it could be? thanks!
