I was driving down the road around 40mph, heard a slapping noise, the check engine light came on and it started getting hot. I immediately pulled over and turned the...

    I have a 2006 BMW X5. The other day the service engine soon light comes on, took it to the shop, said it was the gas cap code. Replace it and cleared the code. The light has come back on. The car is running great but no clue why the code has showed up again. Thoughts?

    Hello, Lurker but a First time poster here. I am having an issue with my 2012 BMW 328i. I've had the car for 2 years now and about 3 months after buying the car I started getting a Drive Train Malfunction Error (loss of power) on the idrive display. When I turn the car off the drive train error...

    Hey forum, I was hoping to get some advice/help on my 2008 X3 (e83, N52 engine) A few weeks ago I decided to undertake the work to change out the valve cover gasket myself, and while I did so with no roll-overs or gaps in the sealing, several other problems have arisen since then. 24 hours...

    hi guys i have a misfire on multiple cylinders, it is usually possible to drive around it but hills will usually trigger it. the cylinders are not just confined to one bank. i have tried new spark plugs, once removed there was no trace of oil on the plugs. i switched coils around and no change...

    My 2011 335i coupe with FMIC and Cobb Aggressive tune just recently lost its serpentine belt, and I would love to understand why this happened. So any theories on the following would be welcomed. Of course, when the belt came off, it went into the engine through the crank shaft seal. In...

    I recently purchased this car, but after making a 2 hour drive it just started hiccuping while driving but then return to normal. Now it's completely shutting off whenever the check engine soon light turns on, it'll hiccup when it flashes for a few seconds. This usually happens whenever its...

    I posted yesterday the full breadth of my problems, but limited response. Started to think my problems are related possibly to VANOS, not a vacuum leak. This morning, car started a bit rough in terms of idle, then cleared up pretty well after two miles. Went to a drive through for food, and...

    Hello, I feel like I have enough random symptoms, that i need to start a new thread. 2000 BMW 528i 94000 miles owned for 8 years. Recently replaced secondary air pump--sounded like a jet, secondary air pump valve--bad advice, and one of the o2 sensors--up top near front of engine, and valve...

    Hey guys, I have a 02 525 and I'm having a problem trying to figure out what's causing my check engine light to come on and off almost every other day. I've noticed the car smells as though its running rich and the light will come on when I start to get low on gas. So I'm not sure where to begin...

    While attempting to pass a vehicle I shifted into "Sport Mode" and floored it while shifting in order to make the pass. The "check engine" light came on and as I coasted to a stop at a red light the car was running poorly and missing at idle. I pulled off the highway to look for a service...

    If i sit at idle, my CEL flashes for about 1/4 of a second every 2-3 seconds, slowly increasing in frequency and length, until the CEL just sticks on there and the car comes damn close to stalling. RPM's have dropped to nearly 0 when this happens, but usually hover at about 400. The CEL Code is...

    I could use some help. My 2005 X5 4.4i only has 89,000 miles on it and a multitude of problems (I've put in more money than buying a new one at this point). First, if anyone knows of a decent BMW mechanic that won't rob me in Brooklyn, NY I could use it. Second, the Check Engine Light is On...
