When im accelerating and stepping on the gas pedal it goes to 20mph no problem but then going past it the acceleration just shoots up but im not picking up speed.

So I recently bought this car was running fine but check engine light was on so replaced plugs,oil now car ran like shit po500 p0440, p0304,302, took throttle position sensor off it wasn't working and throttle butterfly wasn't moving so I cleaned throttle and tps both are working like should. So I'm going to throw it back together is there anything I should know or check before I do repairs. Thinking about deleting pcv system any suggestions or input or similar problems Lmk thanks.

p0500 p1189 -88 most of which when looked up has something to do with the 02 sensor.. speed senor is out as well. but im sure tht the car should still start. i new a replacement raditor and i just fixed the high pressure line for the power steering. still not sure what is causing it to not run. i tarts up for a while when cool then turn back off. a few forums that mentioned replacing the crankcase vent something...but i cant find a leak or breakage when i spray the engine. please help single mother who needs her car!!!

car began being hard to start, ran rough, now will turn over but will not start.

I just got a new radiator. Everything under the hood is new. 108+ miles. I just don't know why my electric water pump isn't coming on. I don't know which fuse the pump would be on!!! Help please.

Always starts perfectly when cold. the fault occurs randomly but generally around town after 10 km or so. Rarely happens on long trip ( 300km + ) Motor wobbles as if unbalanced lacks power but NEVER stops completely. NO fault codes and mostly fixes itself within a few km . Very ODD.
And while my profile says NJ I'm actually from NEW ZEALAND!!

My headlights look a bit milky. I know some of it is on the outside but I can also see discoloration inside. Have had the lights off but can't get inside.
My 1999 528i Touring wagon has 412,000 km on it. 257,000 miles. Still goes great but has a fault in the tailgate lock that seems to flatten the battery over 10 days or so. NO codes appear. just the left rear tail light warning light on.

The sound sounds like it's coming from the driver side where the power stering fluid resv is

Changed crank shafted position sensor changed cam shafted sensor on intake I'm lost any help would be greatly appreciated

When I put the key in the ignition to turn it the car will not start but always have started before

Even with the fuse 30 removed the system when off 'on its own' - any demon removal tips? Removing this fuse disabled the ABS, and traction control (not good).

Price range for parts?
