    I have a BMW X6 2010 V8 which I bought couple days ago, I wanted to try how fast it could go, once I fully throttle engine lost power, rpm went down and a 1/2 check engine light came on with an engine fault message reduced power.

    Just got my car back from my renter (on Turo) and got greeted with all three of these codes. Car has 130k~ miles I only have the cheap autozone code reader so those were the CEL codes i got. Any idea?
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, First, I wish everyone well during these trying times. Mostly because I am human but also to explain why the car took a beating. COVID was rough and due to circumstances I had to drive passengers (those cars you call with the app on your phone) in my car to make ends meet. The...

    I need your help and advice. My 7 recently seems to be a trouble pit. The check engine light has been turning on/off. Now it's on constantly. Today the car is shaking, feels like it wants to shut off and theres no acceleration. I shut off the car for about 30 min and now the car seems ok...
  6. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Check engine light came on and tried to pull the code with a basic Actron scanner. Tried the OBDII port and the 20 pin underhood port with an adapter and got "Failure to Link" in both cases. Then I tried a Schwaben (Foxwell) NT510 BMW-specific scanner. Using the OBDII port I got "Not...

    Happy Holidays everyone. I just returned from a 10 day vacation and turned on my car to notice a orange check engine light along with the external temperature reading at - 40 Celsius! I am in Philadelphia, PA so it is definitely cold, but not THAT cold. Any guesses on what could be causing...

    Can someone point me to where the CCV's and PCV are located on the 760i? I am suddenly getting a very rough idea at start up that seems to go away at speed but that could just be me. Last Friday at acceleration, just after starting, the check engine light came on. Any other suggestions to the...
  13. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    First off I have a 1999 M3 manual. I need to pass emissions but my check engine light is on. I just got the codes checked which are P1250, P0173, P0455. Can anyone help tell me what these mean? (Especially the P1250 since I can't find any information about that)

    My 2011 328 xdrive is having some crazy things going on! Wanted to see if any of you guys had this exact issue. The wife was driving and said that all of a sudden all of the lights on the dash flash off and on and the gauges are all moving up and down but the car is operating perfectly and...
  15. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    Last week I turned in my brand new (less than 800 miles) 2017 BMW i3 REx in for service after the check engine light had come on at unexpected times (while not on REx). Through ConnectedDrive I noticed a 70+ mile drive occurred while the car is still at the BMW service center (it's been there...
  16. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    So as the title states I am currently looking at buying a 2003 Bmw 745li with 156k miles on it, the dealer has a really good price that's hard for me to pass up however, this car is 600+ miles away from me so before I commit to the drive I have a few questions. The dealer says the only issue...
  17. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey guys, I have a new issue with the my x5 35d 2009, I have the check engine light come on with the code p0087. Sometimes it puts me into limp mode without really being in it because I can still rev up to 4000rpm, and some other times, it gives a "bang" and the car shuts down drastically. I...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Well I went to get it checked out since the check engine light turned up, according to the code it starting saying the fuel cap, but after deeper review apparently there is a module that goes by the battery that has been detected with a minimal leak and therefore making the check engine light...
  19. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hi all, Does anyone know the way to turn off "Check Engine" and to clear two trouble codes regarding "Drivetrain" and "Fuel supply". I guess both codes were caused by lower octane fuel that I put regular fuel into the tank by mistake. My car is 2014 F31 2.0L gasoline twin turbo x-Drive...
  20. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi everyone, I just purchased a 2004 745i two weeks ago. So far I love it except for the fact that it started leaking oil right when I got it, and gave me a check engine light. I took it for an oil change yesterday and they told me that the oil drain plug is stripped, which is most likely why...
