Good morning dear customer.

I hope your well.

Im just sending you a follow up message regarding the problem your having with your BMW.

The fault code p1279 is mostly related to cylinder misfiring.

This can be caused by a faulty injector due to low fuel pressure.

A diagnostics on the injectors will indicate if there is a issue with the injectors.

If theres anything else I can help you with please don't hesitate to ask me.

Have a lovely day,

Take Care

Kind regards Hemal

Hi there.

thank you for your reply.

Yes it seemed like a issue with the fuel system.

The vehicle can misfire or run rough if the injector or any other fuel related item is causing the issue.

Im glad you managed to sort the problem out.

Have a lovey day.

Take Care.
