Obviously by my question you can tell i am not repeat not a mechanic!!!! Ad I am not a blonde girl either!!!!
the knob still turns but it seems its not connecting to the system? Just happened randomly after picking up car from getting detailed at car wash.
I have had several instances of the headlamps and tail lamps coming on just as if you picked up the door handle and security was set. We keep the keys well away and I have went out and never found any sign of it being someone trying to obtain entry to the vehicle. The high battery warning has been coming on lately although battery is < 1 year old and both keys have new batteries and are charged to system regularly. Appreciate any insight!!!
Tried to turn over, now nothing. No error message on dash, all electronics work, tried both keys, cables on battery are clean, light on battery is green
Can a valve cover gasket leaking cause the car idle low and hesitate when stopping and going
I have taken the vehicle to BMW three times for this same reason. They have charge me for a oil diagnostic 190.00. The problem still exist. I took the car back yesterday and show them where the leak is located in the oil housing area. They saw it this time and said that it was ok, charge me an additional 97.00, but the problem persist. The check engine light is still on and the oil level light is still on. I don't know who to take the car to if BMW cannot repair their own product. I have taken the car there three times within the past year

I recently got a 1991 BMW 535i. My son and I were planning to turbo it and making a great project car. But in order for us to do that we have to have a running car. The car had a old viper alarm system that fried the wiring and we took it out. But still we get no spark from the coil, does anyone have any answers?
