Re: 740 engine stalling
I had a 1985 740 that exhibited the same symptoms, after it was 12 years
old. My problem was an intermittent and faulty "hall sensor", inside the
distributor, where the external wiring is connected. The other
suggestions are possible, but I'd put my money on the distributor sensor.
Tell the garage to start with the replacement of the hall sensor, otherwise
they may start replacing the MAP sensor, injectors, fuel pump and heaven
forbid the ECU computer. You may end up with a huge repair bill and no
better off - I've heard of this happening.
Good luck and let us know what is the final culprit.
