The sound sounds like it's coming from the driver side where the power stering fluid resv is

the dealership said at first they it was the vacuum pump didn't know what was wrong when engine light came on after testing sent info to Detroit they said they couldn't find anything wrong now the dealership thinks its the fuel pump engine light came on took it to shop they couldn't find anything wrong went off and stayed off for 5 months just came back on again I feel like I'm getting the run around wasting money please help me if you can Thank you

Looks like it cannot decide which gear to engage. changes gears in quick succession like two or 3 gears at a time.

The analyzer at the workshop does not indicate any problem with the gearbox.

Please let me know the problem with the transmission.

Thanks and regards.

And the front left tire rumbles when coming to a slowing stop of 29-25 or higher. I don't know what's going on! Help?!!

Changed crank shafted position sensor changed cam shafted sensor on intake I'm lost any help would be greatly appreciated

when I start to drive it went back down, pulled into parking lot and parked. As soon as I put it in park, Went into the red and overheated. I had recently had a fuel pump put in and my mechanic also replaced blower because he said it went into the red. Any ideas on what it could be. I had it towed to the mechanic.

Anyone have bench bleeding technique for the master cylinder since I have to remove it to get the booster out.

1998 BMW 581i

Started to drive and the car just shut off. Did not stutter just stopped. Had enough movement to get it to the curb. Tried to start it sounded like it wanted to start but wouldn't turnover . Gas was below 1/4 of tank my mechanic said to add gas gauge could be off and I may have run out of gas. Added gas but still wouldn't turn over. Called AAA when tow truck came and tried to start it. Nothing happened said battery could be old and from trying to start it I could hVe drained the battery . It at the mechanics now but being it's Sat. He won't get to ck it till Monday. Any ideas what the problem could be?

When I put the key in the ignition to turn it the car will not start but always have started before

It's just the car smells gas after parking it. It's really strong. What would it be?

did the aim / bala and still the same

A wire runs from it to the throttle control. The engine will not go over 2000 rpm with it connected or not. The engine has a lot of miss fires trying to reach 2000 rpms

Tryed checking the wss but if I disconnect any one of them the transmission goes in safe mode

Cleaned the icv. It was still in limp mode. All kinds of lights on in dash after clearing computer just Mel and service engine soon light and into limp mode can clear computer and it runs ok for awhile

It spontaneously shuts off and then turns back on 10 minutes later or maybe an hour later. And never stays on when its raining. And when it does come on, it never blows cold air. Its hot in SC, someone help a brother out please. How can I fix this?

Car goes into the red sometimes And overheats if sitting too long running
