dashboard gauges not working on 2002 bmw 325ci
The engine was dying at stops then the car would no longer start. It now has new plugs, wires, computer, fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. It still will not start. Someone suggested that it could be an electrical problem. What else should we check for? Before we replaced the computer, when it was still running, I noticed a build up of carbon in the tail pipe. I was assuming that because of the bad computer, the car was getting too much fuel. Don't know where to go from here. Have had it in a couple of shops and they can't seem to diagnose it correctly either. I would scrap it if I didn't have so much money in it, plus it has fewer than 90,000 miles on it. Thanks!

What is the problem?
While driving down the road, my daughter's car died. She was traveling around 55 mph. When I got there she had full power, but when you try and start it, it only clicks like once and thats it.
This happen now a couple times, and always I bring the car to a garage and they fix it. They change out the sensor then the change out a vaccum hose they do a oil change, but now again the light is on. What else can this been.
it does it whe i put it in gear.what could it be?is there an easy way to check the transfercase? its a borg/warner 1356
It works fine when the temperature outside is warm, but when it's cold, it doesn't want to go into park.
when braking it cuts off
also you have to push gas pedle a little for it to start it runs fine plenty of power idle racing up and down getting more often
I've been noticing that my check gauges light has been coming on and it's been running in the red. But for some reason while driving on the highway with warm air full blast it goes down and then eventually comes back up. Got to work this morning and radiator cap looked like it leaked and had a hissing sound coming from it. Haven't changed the coolant in a while and I'm pretty sure I need an oil change. Could those be what's wrong? I'm not much of a car guy so I have no idea.
