2001 BMW 740i QuestionsRefine by vehicle
when u turn the key to start the car sounds like it wants to turn over but jist cant
I was disconnecting and reconnecting my battery every night and then in the morning to be assured the car would start. All of a sudden the car doesn't even want to turn over. Have I damaged the electrical system on my car?
My car detailer was replacing the passenger mirror and my trunk stopped opening. I had to buy the master key in order to get the trunk unlocked. There was only a few items in the trunk. My truck unlock buttons are no longer working. I suspect a short. where should I look? Is there a reset?
Still shakes. They say I need new tires?
I had my car jumped from the battery. I heard this could mess up the battery module sensor. if so how much is this to fix?
The panels that secure the seatbelts for the front seats are broken. The plastic mounting clips that connect the panels to the chasis are dried out and the clasps have broken off. I think I could replace the clips myself, except that I can't find a source for the appropriate pieces. I need to know the appropriate name for the clips that I need, and also where to find them. If anyone else has had the same problem, I am interested in the ways you were able to repair it. Thanks.
Took my 01 BMW 740i for smog check. Diagnostics listed about six codes, all sensors. Was told car had a misfire?? The car turns on, but it stales like its runing out if power gas and then all of a sudden takes off as I'm trying to push more gas like a bat out of hell!! Wen its jst parked it kinda shakes a little.when I have extra cash I fill up the tank and it'll drive fine.... Gas is low so ill fill it up again n it'll start acting up again for a few weeks. its a demon car!! I only had money to replace the camshaft sensor n that helped for awhile..now car recently made a loud hissing noise n stopped stalling but water is leaking or sumtin cause its overheating quickly. Goes thru coolant like crazy! Please tell me way could b the problem so I can figure out how much ill have to invest in it before I can get rid of it.
runs hot quickly
Recently replaced my alternator (about 3 weeks ago) then had a problem with my battery which probably came from the old alternator taking quite a toll on it before it finally died so i replaced it. but i am still having an energy problem my car just clicks when i try to start it. After jumping it to start it, it seems to drive fine but every few minutes the radio will shut off and turn back on. also all of the icons on my display will light up for a second and then go off as if the car is getting started again. finally the check engine light is also on. I'm guessing there is a short but was wondering if anyone could narrow it down for me with the described symptoms above.
there is a taping sound in the engine,this is just a week now, i had my oil change and is still taping, what must be the problem? car have 145k miles please help me
So when I drive and as I pull to a stop, I would say when the transmission goes down to firstit pushes forward. Its a automatic and the wierd part is when in drive, it is as smooth as can be. I do think that it may be the transmission but im sceptical. if anyone can tell if this is common or a sign of a future problem, I would like some input please. It doesnt push bad as far as causing a accident but noticable enough to wonder. Thank you very much
