my local mechanic has informed me that this knowledge will be the difference between $100 and 300$ to have my fluids flushed and replaced.

bought the used BMW 540i without owners manual .... appears to have no dipstick.

Purchased 1 week ago. noticed white smoke on start up. saw more smoke during stop and go traffic this morning. at lunch the car would not crank but tries to turn over. added gas just in case bc the hand was showing low but that did not solve this issue.

Having some weird electrical problems. The back up lights are not working. The interior panel lights (speedo) dim sometimes. The trip computer went into 24hr mode and then back.

if you hold your gas paddle to the floor and turn the motor over a few seconds then turn key off and pull key out . then put key back in switch and start the motor it will startup and run.

I changed the control module and the light won't go off. The car starts but runs rough. What do I need to do.

Is it a DIY replacement?

I mistakenly put brake fluid into the power steering fluid! all the fluid leaked out. what can I do to fix it??

car will not start, can't lock doors or let windows up or down

I need instructions on how to put my seat wires back together on my 94 BMW 540i.

my car will not start, no power on fuse that operate fuel pump.

My d/s window jumped off track and when I got it up and in place the anti-theft went off and stopped pwr windows/door locks and the car want start. My battery in key is dead so I have to use key in door and now it will only work on the door itself instead of unlocking all doors.

How to refill transmission fluid on a 1994 540i BMW ?

I have a 1994 BMW 540i with 161,000 miles on it. I hear a whining sound coming from the transmission mostly at acceleration and changing through the first two too three gears.shifting between gears is pretty much smooth. What could it be and is it serious?

Thanks,
Samuel
