    Have a 2008 328i, A/T. Just replaced the valve cover assembly because it had an internal leak. Soon after the engine randomly shuts off. mostly at idle. It feels like ignition not fuel. I literally just turns off. Engine will restart. A few minutes later it will shut off again. the CEL is not...

    Hello, I have read a ton of threads, but to no avail. My 2000 Bmw 528i auto sports package 64000 miles will start fine, but sometimes, it will not restart. At first there is a click from the starter, but very quickly, it goes to nothing. I bought a new battery, and I thought everything was fine...

    Just 2 weeks ago on my way back from the grocery store I heard a "ding" and up popped the gear wheel symbol with an exclamation point. I was 2 mins from home so just kept driving. Pulled up beside my drive and prepared to back in when I was surprised to see the gear lever pop back to "Park"...

    I desperately help from an expert please. I have had a problem with my 2007 BMW 550i Sport since I purchased it about 14 months ago. The underlying problem is that the car will intermittently overheat when in traffic or when idling in hot weather. The only thing I am sure of is that the...
  9. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    After driving the car on a long trip, after a few hours a rattle develops. Seems to be coming from the dash up by the windshield. It is speed sensitive, and almost sounds like the static you'd get through the radio with bad spark plug wires or bad spark plugs. At around 80 mph the noise gets...
  10. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I am trying to figure out a problem on my cousin's 325. When i start the car at complete cold, it runs great at idle for about 10 seconds. then right after that, the engine starts to "putt" at about 500 rpm for about 10 seconds then returns to a normal idle. It does this once when its cold and...
