does the bmw 330ci automatic transmission speed sensor have a wire lead?

Ive made sure the gas cap was on tight until it clicked but the light wont go off. I need to get it smogged. What could be yhe ptoblem and how could i fix it

Is the fuse box in the trunk the one that has the cigarette lighter fuse in it? If so which fuse is it and what size is it?

did not know it was going bad. very little indication when starting car.

Dealer said it was going bad

why, on occasions, after idling a few minutes, and then driving the car, a puff of blue smoke comes out the exhaust pipe.

If it does start then it run for about 5 second then cuts off

When starting the car after sitting 3 months had to be jumped. Then started fine but engine runs in low rams and in spurts. Won't change when stepping on gas and can't drive it. What could be wrong?


At startup, it idles a little rough for about 5 seconds and then is fine. Now, if I accelerate fast (not like a race car driver, but faster than usual), it accelerates with a split second hesitation and immediately begins to vibrate so rough that it feels as if the engine will die and it feels this way in any gear (and the check engine light comes on). If I turn off the engine for a few seconds and restart, it restarts normally as described above and drives perfectly until I accelerate quickly again at which time the vibration starts all over again. I took it to a mechanic 4 days in a row with this issue and get hooked it up to the computer which gives a different code as the issue each day. PLEASE HELP!!!

no crank . batt was replaced 2 months ago was running fine then one day no start

Resister worked great for 1 day then stopped working. Can they be bad out of the box?

Turned the car off for five minutes, went back outside and all of a sudden won't start.

I took the car in for a service and I still get same message. BMW shops cant find the problem.

Whenever I do hard braking I can feel 1 twitch in steering wheel.

The motor for the convertible top won't work - the repair bill in this area is astronomical. My question is - can you have the motor rebuilt?

my ac not working

the beeping happens on and off as I drive and continues when the car is turned off.


Still no power to computer monitor and radio

ac was working fine and started blowing hot air all of a sudden

today first time

Carfax reveal car has same mileage from 2007 to 2011. Also show no accidents. The meters appear red when engine on, but appear darken when engine off. The meters visibility are obscured

The appearance looks like water damage. I pulled carfax and no accidents, however carfax does report the vehicle mileage of 23k was the same for 4 years from 2007 to 2011. When the vehicle is on the discoloration appears red, when engine is off just looks darken. Visibility of the 2 gauges are obscured

I replaced the alternator, the battery, the Thermasta /sensor, the coolant sensor and the waterpump sensor. I also replaced the pulles, along with the dual filters. When I put everything back on it started like a champ and ran good. Soon after, it started having problems starting. It always starts just takes two times for it to turnover

The car will not conduct any functions

The temp was fine, no warning lights came on. I pulled over and it kept smoking. Drive it home, it smoked intermittently. it sat for a few days. A mechanic looked at it, and couldn't get it to smoke again. I drove it to work today, made it about 15 minutes into the drive, and it started smoking really bad again. White smoke. What could it be?

the top works but sounds like it's straining. Makes a sound like it neesds oil in the motor

Problems with the stereo, the sos light turns on and the sound goes out and the control wheel goes off, lasts about 5 seconds and then it works again
