    Hey folks, first post here. Background: Feeling confident after DIYing most of the maintenance on my e46, I recently decided to buy a 1995 e34 540i project car. Love those circle headlights, and for a fraction of the price of an e30! Altho it has its fair share of issues, the only one...

    I am getting a very slow movement on my temp gage towards the Hot side of the vehicle. At one point there was an error message that came across my Cluster stating that the Coolant Temp was Hot. But immediately the gage dropped to half way and there was no other problem during my 20 mile...
  3. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Wanted to get some opinions on what might be wrong with m E90 and how urgent it is to repair. There is a whirring sound that is RPM related that I hear alot but sounds like the Fan. Its not loud but not normal. Also while stopped on a cold day yesterday, I got a red Temperature signal and a...

    Hi All: I own a 2005 BMW 325i with 70k miles. In the past month my temp gauge will spike all the way red, slowly come back down to middle. Does not do this every time I drive and can happen even on the first start of the morning. I have noticed that if I turn the car to the ON position (not...

    Hi I own a 2002 325i. After a cold night, I realized my temp display needle is now staying at 1 quarter when engine is turned off, and goes up to 3 quarter when I drive the car/engine gets to regular warmth. I assume there is no overheating. I changed the sensor but no help. Any body knows how I...

    Battery light went on. Then temp gauge went to red as I pulled into parking lot at work. Steering was hard. As if the power steering went out. I parked it right away. And i turned it off the car. Any thoughts before i tow it to a BMW Mechanic? Thanks, Juan 1/27/15 1:25 pm Pacific Time

    I have a 1997 540i that I have owned for about 6 months. It has 104K miles. In the past few days, I've had a number of issues that are probably unconnected, but I am hoping for some help since I can't afford to just start replacing everything. Known issues at purchase: -Check engine light for...

    I think my power steering pump finally went on my 2002 325xi. It had been been a bit 'grabby' when I was at slow speed (parking etc) but worked fine at speed. Anyway now it is extremely difficult to turn at a low speed and not much better at speed. I have two questions- Can I drive (carefully)...

    Hello, recently became the proud owner of a 98' 328i Coupe. The car however was bought with the seemingly common problem of the tacho, temp gauge and cruise not working. Just looking for people who have had experience with this issue to shed some light on the situation on what I should try and...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all, For most issues on the E39s, I've been able to read myself up to a solution on these brilliant forums. However, now theres a harder nut to break.. Its about an E39 520iaT, prod. 04/98 with the high OBC cluster. For a long time the temperature gauge has shot into max warm when only the...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I have been trying to do a little research before bringing my X3 to the dealership for a service. Here is the problem I have been facing- (1) Every morning my car starts fine and stalls after about 30 seconds (2) Then I start it again and it stalls. This repeats 3-4 times, more on colder...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    My '04 Z4 is overheating. I took it to a dealer and they replaced the sensor sending unit. The car still overheats. Fans are working. Coolant is full. Any suggestions? I also realized the temperature gauge is actually more like a switch than a gauge. It jumps in increments when the car gets hot...

    recently bought a e36, and roughly 600 miles later (the problem has been on going since mile 1) i still notice the temp gage going from the middle to the red, hit the light, and come back to the center within 30 seconds. i love these forums and have read a similar topic, just cant find it...
  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Thanks for the help. I drive a 2003 325I with 80K miles. it just started making a squeaking/whining noise when the car is in reverse and in drive but not when it is in neutral and not really while in park. Any input? Also around this same time my temp gauge seems to be taking longer...
  19. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    The temp gauge on my '95 M3 started showing cold today while driving, and then regular temp at idle. The cold was about halfway from very cold and normal temp. I wasn't running the AC. It's central Florida and pretty hot, I would think it should run at normal temp even if the thermostat is stuck...
