Replace the two rubber gas lines where they connect to the fuel rail, they're about 2" long. If you don't.....it will catch fire and we'll all see on on the side of the road in the carB-Q.

Cooling problem my bmw 07 335i coupe was consuming alot of coolant water like 1 litter per day i checked the issue, it was a radiator problem... helpfully, i changed it and i left it for sometimes. AFTER 2 weeks i re-checked the coolant, it needed like 0.4 litters and i checked the engine oil if its '' milky '' to check if its from the gasket, the oil looks perfect, and there's no white smoke, is there any clue why my car is consuming alot of water in the coolant? maybe because im driving it too


Level of engine output is not related to water consumption at all, you are not doing anything wrong. It's too soon after the leaking radiator to assume that the engine is consuming water. .4 liter is not much to add at all. Some engines hide air p ... 2007 BMW 335i Coupe
