BMW 740iL QuestionsRefine by vehicle
transmission wont shift from 2nd to third, and there is a oily color to the coolant not from motor.
Is there an adapter fitting to mate the freon inlet fitting to the standard freon delivery fittings?
The gear shift selector knob broke and now I have to change the whole selector.
The car has around 83k miles, I've taken the car to a mechanic a few months back and he pulled the codes as P170 and P173 only. So I changed the O2 sensor on passenger side and MAF. Thinking this would clear the SEL. when it did not, I got my own OBD2 reader. I found the P170 and P173 along with P300, P305, P306, P307, P308 I cleared the errors to see what errors would come back, and when the SEL came back on, these are the errors showing now, multiple misfires on cyl 5,6,7,8 and P300 (repeat)10 errors showed back up. So I changed spark plugs and ignition coils from cyl 1,2,3,4, and put them on cyl 5,6,7,8. to check and see if the misfires would follow. I cleared the codes again, and when I rev up the engine to 4000rpms, the errors came back. I'm still getting the same error codes on the same cylinders 5,6,7,8. Don't understand why only on the right side cyl? What would cause misfires to just those cyl.? I would think a vacuum leak, or fuel pressure regulator would cause all cyl. to misfire. I'm at a loss of what could be causing the problem. Please help.
how do you check if a relay is good or bad
i replaced a fuel pump with a after market one and i still dont here the fuel pump running i checked the fuses and relays but i dont know how you would check a relay to see if its bad i undid a fuel line and turned the key over but no gas shots out of it so i think the fuelpump still isnt getting power how would i checka relay
Seems it's been needing a "jump" from time to time lately. The battery seems to be going dead if the car is not being driven every day. It seems some electrical devise in the car is "running" even after the car is turned off, and draining the battery. I have booster I keep in the trunk just in case I need it and have had to use it from time to time, when the car has been setting for a couple of days or so. I have also use a battery charger to make sure it doesn't run down. Seems to charge OK when I drive it.
Now nothing when I turn the key (except for all the ancillary bells and whistles), not even the slow grown of "trying" to turn the engine over. Is it the battery or the ignition switch? How can you tell? A mechanic friend says I need a new starter but another friend says it's in the ignition switch. He suggests that the switch is falty and is running the battery down and now it to the point that the switch won't engage the starter. How can I tell?
