2000 BMW 528i ProblemsCheck Engine Light on due to valvetronic system fault
The Check Engine Light may illuminate associated with a valvetronic system fault code stored in the DME (Powertrain control module). Our technicians tell us there is a software upgrade for the DME which should correct this concern.
The front thrust rod bushings—also referred to as tension strut bushings—are known to fail occasionally. The oil-filled rubber mounts weaken and crack over time, causing a mushy road feel and shuddering in the steering wheel when going over bumps. These worn bushings should be replaced.
The thermostat may fail resulting in engine overheating and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacement of the thermostat along with a complete inspection of the cooling system will be necessary to correct this concern.
Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.
