Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Backfiring in most cases can be caused by either an engine vacuum leak and or a valve timing concern and in most cases the computer will set and store a fault code. Are you able to scan the computer system and see if there are any fault codes setting? Post back with the results and we can work from there.

I would start first with replacing the Differential Intake Air Control Valve since its broken, It plays a major roll in the incoming air into the intake.

BMW Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

In the cases where I have ran across the backfiring it was usually a vacuum leak and or a vale timing concern but the DIAC being broke really should be dealt with first .

Hi there. Perhaps I can help.

Backfires are the product of lean conditions. As backfires occur, several sensors will send out signals that are out of range and the on-board computer will react by setting error codes that pertain to those signals. That means that a backfire caused by insufficient fuel pressure might result in MAF, O2 and misfire codes.

We're dealing here with a very sophiscated fuel delivery system that includes a fuel pump that has a three-phase motor, which ensures sufficient torque across the whole pump speed range. The pump speed is used to provide the required fuel pressure of 3-6 bar (43-87 psi), depending on the engine operating state.
A fuel pressure sensor sends its signal to the MSS60. The fuel pressure sensor is located behind the inner fenderwell. If the pressure sensor fails or there is a fault in the CAN bus and in the engine emergency program, the fuel pump is operated at full speed. In this process, the pressure is limited to 6 bar by the mechanical pressure sensor.
The signals from both tank fill level sensors are sent to the junction box and are forwarded to the instrument cluster via the K-CAN, where they are evaluated and displayed.

This is going to be hard to diagnose without access to ISTA software; measuring fuel pressure would confirm insufficient fuel as the cause of the backfires, but won't tell us whether it is caused by a false reading from the fuel pressure sensor, or a weak fuel pump, or bad wiring, or even a bad computer.

If you don't have ISTA, you might consider taking the vehicle somewhere where they do and can pinpoint the problem as a cheaper option to what is happening now.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best Regards.
