    Hello: I recently purchased my 2005 BMW X5. After getting stranded due to a fuel gauge reading 3/4 tank I found it never goes below that. From my assumption the sender is faulty. I went to Pelican Parts and found a left hand and a right hand sender. How can there be two senders doing the...

    Hi, helpful folks. The speedometer and odometer are out on my 1985 535i. As a starting point, I want to replace the sender. The info I've found online and in Bentley is confusing: some say the sender is in the differential, and others refer to the "speed sensor" in the transmission housing...

    Getting occasional yellow and red oil level indication on dash. Oil is fresh 0W-40 and right within dip stick marks. Will a faulty sensor lock out the engine from starting (even though oil is up to adequate level)? I don't want to get stranded. 2005 325 XiT, 72,000 miles. :dunno:
