While driving on the hov lane of the freeway during rush hour about 5:15 pm my car suddenly started to rattle when pushing the gas paddle. I took my foot from the gas paddle while still driving with about 60 mph. I tried the gas paddle some seconds later again and experienced still rattling and no acceleration of the car. I took my foot again from the gas paddle. In the meantime I was down to 40mph. About 20-30 sec later from the first rattle the engine light came on and 1 sec later the engine stalled on the highway. At that time when the engine stalled I was still driving about 35 mph. Luckily the freeway had a left shoulder and I turned over to the left with the last remaining speed and slowly stopped the car. I'm so glad that the left shoulder was available. The freeway was very busy and I assume I would have been involved in an accident, if the left shoulder wouldn't have been available. The loss of power was too sudden and entirely unexpected. The stalled engine created a very dangerous moment while driving on a freeway. The BMW shop came back to me today and explained that the high pressure fuel pump failed. A know issue with the car make, model and year.

My 2012 BMW 335i couple m sport package (automatic) engine stalls randomly (5 times since purchasing the car in November of 2013). As a result, the power steering fails and power brake assist also fails. Resulting in some scary situations indeed. This typically happens between 5-40 mph. Engine typically restarts after 10-15 min. The last time this has happened was on 5/21/14 at around 9am pst. I was stranded on CA highway 85. Vehicle has only 7k miles. No engine fault codes register when taken to dealership and they send me back telling me that the car is safe to drive. . Read more...

Auto start stop failure on automatic trans vehicle. Second time the engine has stalled and dropped into neutral in traffic while the auto start stop feature is active. Rather than starting back up as normal the engine throws an error code and forces the driver to manually turn the car off and back on again. Both incidents were at a stop light turning red to green.
