ENGINE LOSES POWER AND TRACTION CONTROL (DTC) COMES ON

2007 BMW 118d • 50,000 miles

I have a 2007 (57) bmw 118d. At seemingly random times the car loses speed while travelling, the traction control symbol comes on but only when I press the accellerator pedal. The engine does not increase in revs when I press the pedal, it continues to lose speed. When I stop the car and turn off the engine then start the car again the problem dissapears for a while then comes back. This has also happened when the traction control light flickers and the car judders as it seems to have 'power' then not.

There is a malfunction in the system that may be causing this issue.

Get it to a shop that can work on your bmw to check the code and determine the failure
