2002 BMW 530i Problemsthe engine won't start and shows on the dust board computer Trans Fail Safe
the engine won't start and shows on the dust board computer Trans Fail Safe
The fuel pump gives out, and the car stumbles, idles very rough if at all. Giving it gas barely moves the car. Pump is located in the top of the fuel tank and the filter needs to be changed at the same time. Expect an $800+ repair bill for that alone.
The Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) will die. It can stop working altogether, or the voltage output becomes unstable and out of range. Symptoms are varied from rough idle, lack of power, poor shifting, to preventing the car from running at all. Replacement is simple, diagnosis isn't always since it manifests in so many ways. The OEM part can run between $250 and $500 - should cost $50-100 in labor.
