Today I changed the rear wheels back to the 9" with the same tread pattern on them. The only difference between the front and the rear is about 5000km and after measuring the tread depth in several places on each wheel, they all have 6.5mm depth, naturally easing out to the edges equally. The only difference currently is the front are the crab claw style and the rear are five spoke. I think they have a different offset, but both are 9" wide x 19" diameter with exactly same size tyres and tread.

There were significant differences from the first diagnostic above, which was still the same this morning until I cleared it. Again I will only put up the faults that registered.

You will see the difference in some while others are missing completely now.

I am still getting the hesitancy sometimes and I was thinking that maybe it might be worth trying the old trick of putting a washer under the wheel speed sensors to lift them out a bit there definitely seems to be some sort of alternate force effect happening, like braking or retarding effect but not to the extent of the stalling of the engine.

I'll clear the faults and do this every day for the week to note if there are changes. I'll only post if something big happens or a change occurs.

Could glow plugs cause this effect? I have ordered six new ones.

I own a BMW E53...Always questions, unfortunately I can rarely supply solutions. I will try to give results to my problems if they are fixed and how it was done.
