I have a 2002 BMW 325ci and on December 9, 2011, i had work done on it to fix a small problem relating to a oxygen line or something to that effect that had burned out. approximately 2 weeks later, i went to get my car inspected for registration and it failed, as the report read that the evaporative system and the oxygen heat sensor monitors (or something to that effect) "were not ready." the folks told me to continue to drive it in hopes that the drive cycle would take care of this problem.

so, i called the shop that performed the work on the 9th and they said bring it back in. they then found another problem with a line that also dealt with emissions or oxygen (forgive me for my ignorance) and repaired that and told me that this was likely the problem with the monitors not being ready. they also mentioned something about the secondary oxygen pump maybe being the culprit, which i hope its not being that the pump is approx 300. so, my question is why would it take so long for the monitors to be ready after the initial repairs being that i drove the car everyday and put approx 20-25 miles on it per day? also, is there anything that i can do to help to get the monitors ready? is there something else wrong with my car that is causing the monitors to not be ready? Your help would be much appreciated!

my passenger side wiper arm wont go all the way down to the cowl its up about 5 inches when in the off postion, apon inspection it seems that the arm was loose, the shaft that goes through the cowl all so moves, it is not tight like the driver side. I pulled the cap on the arm thinking that the nut was loose but its very tight, how do I expose the linkage? should the shaft that attaches to the wiper arm be loose? the wipers work fine with no issues other than the passenger arm not returning all the way down,but i can push it back down and it will stay....
