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.

Summary: THE CRUISE CONTROL AND THROTTLE CABLES ARE ATTACHED TO THE SAME THROTTLE VALVE ACTUATING LEVER AT THE THROTTLE HOUSING. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE PLASTIC BUSHING ON EITHER CABLE COULD BREAK DUE TO ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES COUPLED WITH VIBRATION. IF THE BUSHING BREAKS, THE OUTER CABLE HOUSING CAN SEPARATE FROM THE BUSHING. IN THIS CASE, DURING APPLICATION OF THE THROTTLE PEDAL WITHOUT CRUISE CONTROL BEING ENGAGED, THE OUTER TUBE COULD CATCH ON THE EDGE OF THE BROKEN BUSHING.Learn more »

MY CAR ENGINE GETTING TO HOT, AND FAN NOT ON
One of BMW's best! This models M44 motor is a much better driving motor then the previous M42, both of which were pretty much bullet with little maintenance. The M44 has a broader power band and is smoother! Slightly more efficient too! And the delightful handling of the E36 creates one of the best packages BMW has ever made. The '96-'99 318is are the better model and well worth the extra $!!
