BMW 740iL Problems

Engine Oil Leaks

Engine oil leaks commonly develop from both valve cover gaskets, intake manifold, and PCV plate after about 60,000 miles.

Multiple Parts May be Recommended to Correct Coolant Loss

Leaks are known to develop in the cooling system. It is common to see more than one part recommended for repair/replacement due to overlapping labor and the use of many plastic parts in the system.

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.

Lots of people buy bad cars and good cars of EVERY make and model. Bad reviews from angry people mean they bought the wrong car, didn't have a mechanic check it out (Used Car Buying for Dummies === GET A MECHANIC!) or fell in love with something cute. I've had my used 2001 BMW 740iL for 6 years and it is a great car. Just clocked 175K miles and she's running like a charm. Yes, some repairs a...
Having owned several Beemers and 2-740iL's; I am biased in this writing. These are real head turners and expect to receive compliments!

Also may sound like a failing water pump in its early stages of de...
