Almost home a lot of warning lights came on? lost headlights, wipers, electric windows. etc. Turned in driveway wouldn't climb hill.everything seemed dead but, still had interior lights when opened door?
I can restart then it will run fine. For example, I'll take off at a light and it will sputter and hesitate, then finally shift and accelerate. Once I'm going it's ok. It will keep doing this until I restart the car. It's usually after I have my car parked for a few days. Recently it's happening more often, then today it would start, but stalled when I gave it gas. We let it go for a few hours, came back, the car started right up and now drives fine. !!?? I've had it in the shop for this before, they changed a sensor, but it didn't help. The mechanics were as puzzled as I am. They couldn't get it to malfunction for a while, and nothing ever showed on the computer.
My 2002 BMW 325xi has over 100,000 miles and is consuming oil at the rate of one quart a week. There is no leak visible. My mechanic says the engine is burning it. What is happening?
I jacked the car up and changed the oil after finishing let the car down and tried to pull off but it wouldn't move. Checked all my fluids atf was low added to full line. Everything seems OK tried to go again barely moved but it sputtering when driving. What would cause that when it didn't do it prior to oil change?
warning ligh showed engine overheat - cooland was less - added more coolant and the vehicle ran good for 300 miles. Noticed cooland little low again - dealer suggest replace water pump

It will start when I put starter fluid in and shuts off.
What can be the cause of that? I thought it was because I had bent rims and a bubble on one of the tires. I fixed those problems and the vibrations still persist. I also get a burning smell of rubber.
