    OK so I have a 1998 BMW 540 I that has 130,000 miles I bought from a friend who was the second owner. His parents were from Germany so he only drives German vehicles and he is one of the best mechanics and overkill when it comes to maintenance and vehicle care. The vehicle sat for about five...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey all! First off, new here, and wanted to say thanks! Thanks for all the hard work, and the information on this forum. Truly a wealth of information. I bought my new to me 123k mile 2007 328i a couple days ago, and I wanted to get a feel for what condition things were in, and what I would...
  3. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey, I’m not sure if this has been posted before as I am unable to find a thread about it already. Long of the short, my E60 was having a minor fuel leak on the passenger side of the tank and I had it replaced. While driving down the highway a few nights later, the iDrive said something along...
  4. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi all! I am new here and I am having an issue with my 96 318is. It "blew" when i was accelerating the other day causing it to stall and now it cranks but wont start. I know I have fuel at the engine, and although I have had a small oil leak for a while, it was and is still full of oil. I am...
  5. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all, today my ole' unreliable (99 540i/6) left me stranded on the side of the road waiting for a tow for the second time this month. :mad: Background: a few weeks ago on the freeway my car stopped firing altogether on one of its cylinders. Drove horrible. Slow, sputtery, sad car. Towed it...
  6. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey I was reading about the guy that had his alternator fail, and I tried to do the obc test just to mess around, and it did say test, then shut my car down. :mad: I turned the key off then on again, with no results... I haven't unplugged the battery yet, and I'm confident that will fix it, just...
  7. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So to start off I'm not very mechanically inclined at all (I'm sorry) trying to learn though I was driving my 94 318is doing probably about 35 mph, I went to accelerate and all of a sudden the car jerked forward and gas pedal wouldn't accelerate, it slowed down to about 5mph and just died...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I was driving my '04 730d as usual and everything was well with the car. I parked it and did what I had to do. I returned 4 hours later, entered the car, when I pressed the start button, all kinds of lights went on, on the dashboard, then went off, and the car didn't start, nor did the engine...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The pump for my SMG on my 04 325i Sedan started sounding "tired", taking a bit longer when I unlocked or opened the door, and today it ended up stuck in nuetral then stuck in 1st/Park and could not be started. Running a diagnostic, the main ECU could not talk to the SMG ECU and it is now...
