How do I replace the power steering pump myself
When stopped at a light, if I try and lightly lift off the brake pedal to inch up, the brake gets stuck and the car won't softly move up it sort of jerks up. Any thoughts.
A couple days ago the engine oil pressure light came on blinking red when I was stopped at a light. (only 69,000 miles on the car) When I accelerated to turn through the intersection the light went out then came on blinking again when I was stopped at the next intersection. Again it ceased after I accelerated through the intersection. I pulled into a parking lot and parked. The light came on blinking red again then quit. I turned the motor off and let it sit for a couple hours in the parking lot. When I returned to start it the light never came on again but now there was white smoke coming from the exhaust. It didn't smoke as I drove home (only a couple miles). Over the last 2 days when I start the engine there usually is a great cloud of white smoke coming from the exhaust but not every time. We had a mechanic take a look at it and he found nothing. My husband checked the oil level and it was good. Today a friend followed as we drove and he reported smoke coming out from the exhaust as the car accelerated. Can anyone help?

my check engine is on the car start ok but is runing bad
rear window will not go up
My car overheats after 20 minutes in idle and it appears to leak from underneath the throttle body unit. I removed the large coolant hose that connect to the housing unit to the fire wall and it appears fine. Is there another coolant hose around that area? Is there a diagram somewhere online that shows all of the hoses for the coolant system? Thanks.

I just changed brake pads and sensors on my 2006 325i and the brake light won't go off. Can someone tell me how to get this stupid light off?
When driving home last night all the dash lights came on and the rev-counter speedo etc all zero'd for a second (it was same when i first start the car and the key is in the 2nd position) but the engine stayed running and i continued my journey - it seemed very strange as they was not even a drop in power or anything else, it just seemed electrical. It happened again to me this morning on my way into work, i had my foot down this time merging onto a motorway but again the car kept going without even a stutter.......What could be wrong?? please help.
my driver side, and NOW passenger side windows are broken. The doors have been taken off and windows pushed up, its the little black plastic pieces that have broken (to pull the window up it goes down just fine of course) can i find those pieces anywhere? or do i have to have the whole thing replaced? i heard its very expensive, and this is extremely common for bmws
Went for a drive in the Cali mts last week with my automatic 2004 325i sedan. It has less than 53k miles on it. When I started it back up after a short hike, the engine light and another light (gear light?) was on.
When accelerating from 0-25 mph, the car struggled and just didn't pick up speed like a good Bimmer should(merging onto the 101 at a staggering 20 mph was fun, let me tell you!).
Took it into the dealer. They re-programmed the computer (just in case) and determined it was in fact a transmission issue (duh... as if burnt transmission fluid in there wasn't indicative enough).
Anyway, anyone else ever have probs like this with the transmission? Isn't this kind of strange for such low mileage?
When driving at different time the car will have a chime go off 3 times any idea what it means?
Every time I accelerate onto the freeway, the engine cuts out, EML light comes flashing on, and enters limpmode. It then runs rough and surges rpm's until i turn off car and then back on. Started after I was getting p0171 & p0174 codes. replaced vacuum hose, MAF, fuel pump, O2 sensors.
We checked the fuse that was not the problem. We used a voltage meter that measured 12 volts across it when the car was off. When the car was turned on and the power washer switch was turned on it had 31 volts. The pump (that is 12 volts) also isn't working at all. What do we need to do to fix the problem?

How do I flush the a/c system? How many ounces of oil is needed after installing a used compressor that has been drained or after vacuum is pulled? How many ounces/cans of 134a refrigerant is needed to fill capacity?
I found someone selling this model. it had 164,000 miles on it which doesn't seem bad at all. I still have to look at the car but if everything looks good what do you think I should do? i just need a car for the next two years to take to school with me then I'm moving to the east coast. I know BMW's are expensive to keep up so do you think this one would cost more because it's older? I am really interested in a BMW and it's perfect for my price range!
The driver side door window worked and than just stopped working. Does it need a fuse or not? The passenger side still works.
I have a 2003 325i, and the passenger side only blows warm to hot air depending on the outside temp and the drivers side only blows midly cool air (cooler in the morning and evening when the outside temp isn't quite so high). Does anyone know what might be wrong, and how to fix it?
i just replaced the starter and its was running fine for a month but i went to start it 5 mins after i was driving it and the key turned fully but my engine didnt start. there was no sound or anything. i played with it a bit and then mt radio started to play. i took out my key and the clock and radio was still on. i hear that theres electical problems and ignition problems with 1994 bmw 3 series. is that my problem and how much is it going to cost?
I left my lights on my 1991 325i and had to call AAA. Since that time the radio is not functioning. It reads "CO:DE" on the display and beeps loudly when any button is pushed. How do make it work again?
where do I find fuse for cigarette lighter?
