Drive the car to AutoZone if you can. Load testers come in small handheld versions. They should be able to load test it in place.

You didn't happen to measure how much you got out, did you?


You'll go through quite a bit when the pump starts and pulls the sump down. I would have expected you to use 4 quarts or so, and 3...

It's more like "You need to replace the car's factory wiring harness with a completely different one that is likely not available".

Having driven my BMWs on both DWS and A/S 3+ tires, my preference was for the Michelins. Nothing bad about the DWS, I just preferred the A/S 3+ ride and noise conditions on our local roads.

Assuming this is a 335i, I'd recheck ALL of the vacuum lines, chasing their entire lengths by hand instead of just visually. Next step after that would be the vacuum tanks (take one at a time...
