what is the oil capacity for abms 2002 525i
No power to car after replacing battery and alternator. Alarm comes on not allowing car to start was fine before replacements. Checked fuses and all good .
Battery, Alternator, Starter all good. Fuel almost full, engine oil level also okay. But the car lost power while driving and is not starting fully now, just making the engine sound.
No heat at all even when I turn it to 90•. Plus my outside temp always says -40. I don't care about the temp i just want heat but could that be the problem?
I had given the car to the garage to get the alternator changed, when car came back i noticed in 1/2 days that i had filled only 10 litres of petrol but fuel gauge was showing half tank. I m using the mileage to check petrol level but the gauge is really stuck around that half mark.
The garage guy refuses to accept anything coyld have gone wrong inspite of charging 600 quid for alternator work. Now when i went to him challenging hom on this since it was fine before the work was done, he says your car headgasket is gone. Dont know wat to do? I have been using it around nearby no issues as yet but the fuel gauge needs to be fixed. Pls help someone. Thanks
