Car: BMW 318 TDS Compact. 90HP. 168.000KM
Situation: was driving a very intense uphill section at 70km/h, in 4th gear (2.000 rpm). Everything was ok. Engine sound, temperature, etc...
Suddenly, despite my foot was pushing the Throttle at full power to stay at 2.000rpm, rpm started slowly dropping... until the engine STOPPED
What happened ?
This indicator was on! (don't remember if blinking)
So after approximately 30 seconds, I tried starting the engine again. After a few tries the engine started, but hesitated a lot (the RPMS slowly went from 0 to 1000 rpm), and then I just let the engine heat a bit and started driving again.
Then I drove cautiously till my destination.
After opening the hood of the car, I was surprised to see that the EGR part was quite cold.
Please help me to understand what happened?
EDIT : I found there is an air bubble in the Gasoil pipe. Might that be a reason ... ?
