So i've never had any lights come on my bimmer,
here's the story
please don't call me stupid...
10:12 pm, i fill up my car while it's running, 15 bucks , notnjng crazy.
I close the cap and go drive, i turn on a main highway and having a bmw i have the instinct. Floor it. 10:20 pm and then 2 seconds later boom EML light, acceleration is gone, car feels weird. I pull over and break my car is like jerking, i get out the exhaust sounds like a rotary, wum
wum wum wum. My EML light is on keep in mind. I turn the car off for a little check under , then i turn it back on EML is off, and car is running fine. Do you guys think this happened due to loss of pressure in the gas tank. (I have never filled the car up while it's running). This has never happened before this. The car ran fine all the way home. Does anybody have any idea ?
I floored it and it went on, after i filled up with the car running
