Had 3 radiator hoses fixed three months ago and my engine still steams whenever its raining out.

Sometimes its really bad like my car is on fire but the mechanic says they checked everything and it's fine.

When backing and turning while car is sitting still

My car runs perfect after a starter replaced but my Idrive system won't turn on. I thought it was the battery and took it out but that wasn't the problem.

What could be causing the misfiring?
I have an 07 bmw 530i with around 186k miles. Just recently it started acting funny. Whenever I take off from traffic lights or start entering a highway the engine will start to misfire, or so I think it is, and shake. It does it from around 1500-2000rpm. What could the issue be? Spark plugs, wires, or coils is what I'm guessing but I'm not sure. Can I please get some help!?

When I push the start button, the starter remains silent. The screen does not indicate any mechanical issue

I had charge checked and it was good. A/C blows cold on Max only, but then fan is too high and loud.
What do you think it might be, and what is estimated cost to repair? Thanks!

Does a 2007 brake warning light rely on actual sensors or is it based solely on mileage? Thank you.

I received a second warning that shows need for immediate replacement of pads but I just had them checked at a Tires Plus store 3 weeks ago and they said I had about 30 to 40% pads left - they even re-checked them and told me the warnings are based on mileage estimates, but apparently there are sensors - do I need rear brake pads asap?? thanks 2007 530i with about 74k. I am under the impression this Q is going to all and not just to a store near me.

After the fuel injectors were replaced and the coolant system repaired, a couple weeks later I have to replace the ignition coils. Seems like a funny coincidence. Could the earlier repair work have damaged one of the coils?

bmw keeps telling me its normal for their cars to burn excessive oil, i have to add oil between oil change...this car does not have a dip stick so i don't know if the computer is giving me mis information..

I had it in the shop to no avail said it was steering column

I noticed some difficulty with my car actually turning over, then my battery went completely dead. we replaced the battery and my car still wont start. i am assuming i need to replace the starter. Experts please help.... if your assumption is the same as mine- where could i find a tutorial on how to replace a starter for my car?
