I just bought it from a trusted friend who is also in shock and aww at all the problems I am having we are taking it to get looked at next week but I know these cars and be expensive and I am a single mom with to kids and am scared they will find more than what is there and I wont be able to afford it.. so I figured I would come here. Here are the problems... please help
1. it is burning oil not horribly but noticeable from exhaust.. blue smoke... not much of a change in oil leaves
2. keeps over heating while driving while sitting still doesn’t matter it over heats.. has coolant...
3. takes a minute for it to shift into R from any gear.. auto tranny... I put it in gear then have to sit for a second cause it wont move...
And yes I took it to a mechanic and they put coolant in but not much and said it looked fine I have only owned it a week today, I am taking it to the dealer tomorrow but it wasn't a beamer dealer... oh and the heater will stop working when it gets really hot to.. Please please help
