    Hi, I recently changed the turbos and PCV valve on my car. After reinstalling everything I got to start it and it just cranks. Test the spark and they work. I scanned the car and I get these codes 2d1e 29f3 2e7c 2f71 2fbe 2ab4 2f63. Is there any way I can check the fuel pressure or anything? Thanks.

    Hello all, I have already read basically everything that available about this problem but have yet to find someone who had the same problem as me. Since I have owned it, the tailgate on my '06 530xiT will resist opening and closing, making it very difficult to use. When I press the button on...

    My wagon has 68k miles,M Sport,At, Pano Roof etc. With no service history other than what I can see on CarFax. I dropped it at a local Indy Shop. They made a few recommendations, fewer than I expected actually. One thing recommended was an ‘oil filter stand and coolant hoses.’ For $1150. I’m...
