    Engine automatically cut while stationary

    Hi,

    Im driving a 320 and i have been hearing very faint vibration sounds when at low RPM and while I move into higher RPM the sound is gone. Didnt really bother about it.

    Recently while at the traffic light my engine got automatically cut without even indicating signals on the dashboard.

    Could you advise what could be the probable causes? I.e ignition coils or throttes?

    The other time I was at BVO, I overheard another 320 owner had this problem too. Reflash the ECU solved the issue. But pls don't quote me for this. 

    Idle rpm low ..... if it was one of the coils, the vibrations would be quite frequent.
