1995 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.

I would like to know if anyone has knowledge of how to release the emergency break on a 1995 740 series.
i just got one, its the most packed car ive ever had its a wonder to drive and a great car overall even though its a little money to fix it, in the long run its worth keepin. The total package no wonder they call it the ultimate driving machine.
Ive had my beemer for about two years and yes as far maintence its expensive! Take it in first sign of problem. But honestly overall rating on the car I LOVE IT no major problems drives like a champ!
