checked fuses, tried to replace flashing unit couldn`t get it out

started 1 week ago

the harmonic balancer has moved back and worn a hole in the timing chain cover engine has over 100k on it

No doors are open, yet it says door open, and what part will I need to replace to fix this issue?

This has happened the past two days...scared to drive it. It happened upon starting the vehicle and leaving my driveway....less than a quarter mile going only about 10 -20 mph. I stopped to turn on major highway and as I was coming to stop it just turned off mid-motion...I ended up in the middle of the highway. Thank God there was no traffic at the moment. I drifted in the middle of the road and couldnt turn and had put all I had to push the brake. I have noticed on several forums and discussion boards that there were several complaints about this happening to others. I brought it into the dealership and of course they cannot recreate this.

what does it mean

Front left side collision that caused 6500.00 damage. Now engine thermostat will shoot to red hot within seconds. No heat from vents for about sixty seconds then as air warms thermostat begins to fall. The truck ran 100% fine before accident. Insurance is refusing to pay unless I can find a mechanic to certify that damage was caused by accident. I'm broke, where do I start to minimize damage to my already thin wallet?
Thank you in advance.

Have both 530i and 323ix. "fULL SERVE" attendant put 2 quarts of 10-30 natural in the 323 without asking. Will oit do any damage to the engine?

warming up car in morning temp 18 degrees farenheit

i changed it about every three months its a factory motor and horse power

There are no lights on my dash, the radio and the horn has no power also there is no interior light.

On 1/17 - My clutch peddle was to the floor. This has never happened before. I pumped the clutch, the car started but the gears would not shift. The gears only shift when the car is off. I'm wondering if the car has a cable that snapped or if there may be a possible leak.

I dont hear the moter running, I checked the fuses they seem fine. The wipers wont move at all. if I pull on one of the arms by hand they both move in unison.

My 300c whines when i push the gas pedal and it has a hesitation when pulling off or sometimes in reverse.
