BMW coolant light on and hesitates around 40 mph

Asked by Jul 21, 2016 at 08:10 PM about the 2010 BMW 3 Series 328i Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

have a 2010 BMW 328i 2 door coup with around
95,000 miles.. about a week ago the coolant light
came on and then a couple days later my car
started stalling a little bit nearly every time I would
accelerate and get right around 40 mps.. it doesn't  
make any noise or anything, but it just feels like it
doesn't want to go and kind of feels jerky or jumpy
for a few seconds.  I don't know if there is any
correlation between the coolant light and this
happening or not, but I'd greatly appreciate any
help I can get (I don't know the first thing about
stuff like this and i don't currently have a mechanic
I necessarily trust either).
Thank You!

Coolant light means your low on coolant or overheating. If the car won't accelerate, it might be in limp mode. Get it checked out ASAP, as you don't want to overheat the engine, damaging it and costing you thousands to repair vs hundreds now.
