We noticed our 2008 BMW X3 was not holding antifreeze.. so we assumed a leak. We drove the car which was running fine to a Meinke garage to fix the leak. The next thing we know, they had to tow it to the BMW dealer because the timing was off so bad it wouldn't run. Meinke says they didn't cause the issue. Notes from the BMW say the timing problem was caused when Meinke removed the Vanos adjusting unit. Advisor at BMW said Meinke should pay for repairs. Meinke just called and said that the advisor was incorrect and the BMW general manager now agrees with Meinke. Your thoughts? Bill is now up to about $4000

Hello,
1999 BMW 318i issues that I hope you guys can give me an assist with:

1 In the morning, car tends to have some hesitation when the engine is cold.

2 When car stops completely and it is in D, and I have the foot on the brake, the engine (feels like engine) begins to shake. But when I take my foot off brake, shaking stops.

3 When I do stop the car, the RPM's dip and it feels like engine is about to stop, but then stabilizes, although the shaking begins.

4 Sometimes when I'm driving at higher speeds and apply the brake, RPM's rev up when they should be going down. Feels like when taking the car from 4th gear to 3rd and it still has too much speed. This is momentary and immediately RPM's begin to decrease.

Car runs great, transmission is not slipping, and engine feels like it is running fine.
I have changed the spark plugs, air filter, and exhaust sensors.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Many thanks in advance,
Paul
WHEN BACKING THEN STOPPING, , ONLY FOR A MINUTE, LOUD SQUEAL IN FRONT END. OK, it's definitely much louder when first starting the car in the morning, ( 60ish degrees outside) backing down (slight decline driveway) driveway to the street. Stops after about 30 seconds. When starting car after it's been sitting in the sun all day at work and backing out on flat surface, the sound is still noticeable, but much quieter.
I took out the old tire sensors and it worked fine. When I installed just two of them, speedometer stopped working.
