vehicle troubles!

Well, hello!

So I'm new here, just signed up! I have an X5, I love it but have recently had a few troubles. I live in Saskatchewan Canada where it can get to around -40 to -50 Celsius. Most recently the coldest has been -30. My X5 would not start at anything colder than -15 also it has become very sluggish at taking off from a complete stop. I tried everything to fix my problems from searching on here and google to even installing an oil pan heater and nothing would make it start. Today I changed my battery and problem solved! It starts, has no end of power, it is like a total different vehicle. I cannot believe the difference after months of frustration so if you are having issues start there!

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your thread over to the X5 forum. You didn't mention which year X5 you have so I had to guess, if this isn't right I can move it again for you.

Thanks for sharing the tip!
