1997 BMW 540i QuestionsRefine by vehicle
They worked then would only work on high then quit completely
MY CAR WAS STOLEN IT WAS RUN TILL THE FAN BLEW APART AND TWEEKED THE HOOD, NOW I CANT OPEN IT ANY SUGGESTIONS. PLEASE
IM A 58YR YOUNG WOMAN I DONT HAVE $$$ TO TAKE IT SOMEWHERE BUT I HAVE SOME GUY FRIENDS WHO IF I TELL THEM HOW CAN HELP ME.
It sputters and engine light flickers... Just put in transmission and cam sensor....
Engine code on sheet says 147... Electronic thermostat... The car dies after driving a mile in road like it's not getting any fire or gas.... What could be wrong
After adding tranny fluid to my 97 540i it started making a ticking noise. Anyone have any ideas what it may be.
When the car is cold the tranny doesnt engage properly, its ok once its warm. I had the car towed in July and it has been leaking a little since then but the tranny just started acting weird. Im sure it needs fluid but I cant afford to take it to a mechanic so can I add fluid myself.?
WOULDNT TURN ON AND THE STEERING WHEEL, AND GEAR SHIFTER WERE LOCKED. CHECKED THE IGNITION IT WAS GOOD CHECKED FUSES EVERYTHING WAS GOOD. KINDA OF STUCK ON THIS SCENARIO.? ANY IDEAS?
On a cold start the engine runs rough and has substantial 'tinking'noises coming from near the firewall. As the engine warms up it runs smoother. Any pointers or words of wisdom? The car has previously had overheating problems... now runs with temp needle @ 12 o'clock position. Driven in outback Australia for most of it's life. I suspect a cracked head leaking coolant into 2 cylinders.
car runs good tho
happends if the car is running or not
I checked the fuse box and it was blown and put another one there and the same thing happened. It worked perfectly fine before the tune up. Please someone HELP ME!!!!! I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON. THE PASSENGER SIDE IS FINE. I cannot move the driver's seat at all and it is too close on the steering wheel.
I can't find the heater hoses on first glance. Is that where they are?
I was driving my 540i home and it all of a sudden lost speed and i pulled it over and had it towed to the bmw dealer and they said it blown the engine. i had no lights or bells to go off and let me know what was wrong. Now my warranty won't pay for it because they said i ran it hot! i had no ideal the car was hot because the temp. gauge was at the normal range and it was full of water. help me please. i need my car fixed and they won't fix. i need advice. HELP!!!!
