BMW 318i Problems

Loss of Power Steering Fluid Due to Leaking Hoses

A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.

spinning ignition barrel

If you can spin your key freely in the ignition you need to get the barrel replaced asap, if you wait cuz it still works (is what I did) you will end up unable to turn it to start or shut off the car. The worst part is once this happens if you cannot turn the ign. the entire steering column must be replaced, if you can still turn the key it is a simple fix so do it!!

Why does the rpm's, speedometer, gas, oil and temp. guages flip on and off while driving? When they flick back on it makes a dinging sound as though you've left door open with keys still in the ignition. Someone help, its driving me crazy. The car does not shut off it still drives but when the gauges go out you can't tell how fast you're going or how much gas you have. It stays off 10 to 15 min...
