BMW 325xi QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have already replaced the valve cover gasket. That seemed to help. However, the engine will sometimes run a little rough when I start it and the oil light comes on. If I shut the engine off after a minute and restart it. It will pure like a kitten and the oil light goes off. Could this have anything to do with the VANOS control unit? How do we find the leak? Thanks, Bill Poirier
Both front tires need changing. One shop adds $100 to the quote for alignment. Another doesn't. Is alignment necessary? Thank you.

Both buttons light up without hesitation, both are easily depressed; however, the hazard lights don't respond nor will the passenger doors unlock after pressing the button.
I've checked the fuses...those are fine.
Of course the local BMW dealer wants to charge an arm, leg, and thigh, to repair the issue.
My horn just recently stopped working? No accident or incidents have happened.
I see there are two fuses (5,55) for the horn. Can the fix be that easy...replacing the fuses?
Changing the light bulbs did not solve the problem
I noticed it happens on hold ups/traffic jam. It goes off and wont start up, like its cutting fuel. When i leave it for sometime (5 min), it will start and run like normal. I have changed the fuel pump and filter. The temp guage is normal (mid point). I have this diagnostic kit and the codes on it are P1085, P0174, P1083, P1525, P0115, P0161, P0128, P0172. Please help.

I was told that the upper leaf of my rear spring was broken, and it needs replacement along with the rear shocks, and that this was common on this car. Is that true?
At first I thought it was the engine; however, it appears to be something under load. Meaning it only occurs when I accelerate. Nothing when coasting. There are no diagnostic codes or any lights on! The mechanic I use thought it was the carrier bearing, which I had replaced! Yip, removed the enitre exhaust system, heat shields, drive shaft, etc. to replace it, balance it and put it back in! I've had the engine tuned up, inductor plates cleaned, the mass-airflow meter cleaned. Still have the problem.
car want start afer changing the battery and i am not getting any fuel.
I cannot get car to start.
