BMW QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Why do people often say be careful when replacing car brakes, I thought once the car brakes were on the car that nothing could go wrong, am I mistaken ?
When I try to start the car, sometimes it won't start until I've turned the wheel back and forth a few times.
where can I find it ?
I know that my BMW has front wheel drive, but I always wondered why is it that most models of the BMW I have always gets the front rims of the wheels dirty just driving on a regular cement road.
On a cold night i started my car and the radio didn't work at all the next day it worked but then cut off.
I cant seem to find it so i put the transmission oil where the power steering is , should I do that or not?
I was driving it and all of a sudden there is no reverse.

Purchased an 02 E46 great deal. However the lad didn't change the oil very often. When I bought the car it was about 3k the "next oil change" sticker. No ticking no knocking, no rough idling. I did a tune up and oil change myself, I just want to clean out any gook that may be gumming up the engine. Thanks for your help
