1998 BMW E36 328I 300,000 Miles My car is misfiring and giving me code PO302 Cylinder 2 Misfire and PO202 Injector Circuit/open Cylinder 2. I've replaced ignition coil 2, replaced all spark plugs, replaced fuel injector, cleaned MAF, checked for leaks, and it STILL misfires and has these codes. What else could be the reason? Is it the wiring harness or ecu? Please help
Seat does not move forward or back on the passenger side. I fixed the gear that was not working on the seat recline, but can't find anything on the longitudinal repair. Would like to just replace the gear box if possible. I was at the dealership today and inquired about it and they advised it was about a $600 repair. I asked the technician it is coule be fixed if I had the part and he said yes. Can you help guide me on what it would take, how to and where to get the parts?

Had the oil pan gasket replaced on my 1998 328i. Two days later I noticed oil was leaking again and was told by mechanic that the timing chain cover gasket was now leaking and needs to be replaced. Before I fork over another grand id like to know 1. if this issue should have been detected or 2. could be somehow caused by the previous repair.
