    I have a 2006 X5. About six months ago it would not start. I checked battery voltage and it showed 11.2 volts. I replaced the battery but the vehicle still would not start. It turned out to be a fuel pump relay. After replacing the relay the vehicle fired up fine but it then displayed a...

    I have pulled the alternator and had it checked. It tested good at auto zone and pep boys. So I put back in and check connections. It is still on. The battery terminals and cables look good What should I check next? Should I replace the alternator anyway?

    Ok so I've had my '97 M3 E36 for just over a year now and it's been blowing apart clutch fans and ruining radiators since day one.

I thought it was on fire. I quickly...
