2001 BMW 325i QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My a/c blows cooler on the driver's side than the passenger side.
my car needed to be jump started but then was working fine for a few days when driving it around...i went on a trip and the steering became hard...the car was overheating and when i stopped to put in coolant,the battery died (turned on but not the engine)the steering was still very difficult...i was hoping i dont need an altenator, how much should it cost to repair the v-belt?
Two times, in the last 15 mths, the ac / heat doesn't go on but the next day it’s fine. Last night ac was fine after 30 min in the store it was only blowing @ (?) 1/2 power then within 3 blocks full power just kicks in (that happened for the 1st time last night!) I have a 2001 BMW 325i with 96,000m and the ‘service engine soon’ light has come on, went off for two mths & is now on again. Other than the screw I picked up in a tire my car runs great (I don’t drive it every day – couple of times a week). 1 other quickie; hot day, keys locked in running car a little over 1 hr, if your thermostat is bad what happens to the car? Thanks, I hope you can help. MJ (It’s going in for at least the fluids changing as soon as I find the right place!)
Where is the trunk release located inside the 325I, 2001 so I can get into my trunk, key works for opening the car and closing, does not work for opening the trunk.
i need to replace the starter in my 2001 bmw 325i, but i am not sure how much it should cost and i do not want to get ripped off.
Rear passenger window won't go up. The BMW repair shop says it's the master control module and the parts alone is $400. Is this real? Please advise. I just spent $2,000 on this car back in January for oil leak. Thank you. email@example.com

I have a sputtering problem that happens once or twice a week and my check engine light is on. I went to autozone and had it diagnosed as having duct tube damage caused by a large vacuum leak on engine or faulty MASS sensor. Is this something that can be fixed by someone who knows just a little about repairs, like myself or should I take it to a mechanic and what should I be looking at price wise on the repair? Also what is best website to go to on how to do repairs on BMW's?
Found out last Sat. 03/05/11. By running slow you can hear a flapping sound at the back right rearwheel side. I brought it to a shop to check for nails nor pebbles on the tires. There was none. Is it the brakes ?
This car had a 50,000 mi used engine put in 2009. This past month, on occastion white smoke will come out of the exhaust. The oil light came on for a brief time, oil was checked and added. Just a few days ago, my son started it up, pulled out of parking lot...smoked came out of the exhaust and it died. We had to have it towed. The engine is not locked up...It will start and run, but white smoke is still billowing out of the exhaust. Any ideas?
