Z3 engine starts but dies immediately. this happened three years ago, a shop charged me $1900 to replace "the computer" with a used one, and the car worked again. Later, a friend told me all he needed to do to fix the same problem on his Z3 was clean the contacts (I live near the ocean in Fla). I want to try that before I tow it to a shop.

Have codes appearing

What do I do next to get it to pass smog test

what is the antilocklight mean when it goes on?

That is at the same time as the DSC failure. After both of those were replaced I was told the diagnostic showed a VTG failure.

when i start the car it wont kick over nothing happens but it has power. ill put it in drive then neutral then park a few times then it starts.?

Alternator replaced with NAPA part. Battery warning light continues to come on from time to time. Dealer checked and found alternator OK and clueless as to reason for battery lighy coming on. Any ideas?

Car only sometimes starts off rough. After I let it run it will start to run smoother. But while it is running rough it smokes and smells like the gas is burning rich or stronger. Also the warning light comes on. I fill up the antifreeze at least every 100 miles or so. So is is a sensor or a bad radiator cap.

I have to actuate the close button many times

it moves left and right about a inch sounds like a manufacture problem to me

deceleration. I put in new tires with balancing but has not removed the vibration. Pls advise what causes the vibration?

This only happens when I have been driving the car and I only smell it outside the car. Nothing, that I can see, is leaking from the car, and I never smell the gas inside of the car. I will be able to smell gas like 30 minutes to an hour after I turn the car off. What could this possibly be?

tant driving

how much will it cost me to get my transmission mounts replaced

Check engine light came on, took to dealer, they said they had the P0711 code, A/T temperature sensor, and it needed replacing(there was a bulletin out for this part). They estimated the cost at around $700. They reset the check engine light, so it is off. If I take it to another shop, can they check for the code and confirm it after the dealer reset it? The light came on after the car was parked all day, and I do not see any change in how the vehicle is running. Any ideas or suggestions on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
