2000 BMW 528i Problems

Check Engine Light on due to valvetronic system fault

The Check Engine Light may illuminate associated with a valvetronic system fault code stored in the DME (Powertrain control module). Our technicians tell us there is a software upgrade for the DME which should correct this concern.

Loosness in the Front Suspension Due to Worn Tension Strut Bushings

The front thrust rod bushingsalso referred to as tension strut bushingsare known to fail occasionally. The oil-filled rubber mounts weaken and crack over time, causing a mushy road feel and shuddering in the steering wheel when going over bumps. These worn bushings should be replaced.

Check Engine Light and/or Engine Overheating

The thermostat may fail resulting in engine overheating and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacement of the thermostat along with a complete inspection of the cooling system will be necessary to correct this concern.

Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.

The brake light keeps coming on on my dashboard. I got brake fluid in its tank filled and my brakes work like new. Only problem is that it does a long squeaky/scraching noise when I put the brake pedal down slowly. What may be the problem? Please email me @ Bryanbuden@gmail.com
