Having problems with your 2002 BMW 3 Series ?

Answers :

I would check your starter first then check your relays. if you still have nothing check the ignition.
The battery could be weak. It has to be strong enough or the car will cut power top the starter but leave the accessories powered, so it could be confusing. Also, a les likely cause is the key may be damaged or need reprogramming

The check engine service light is on. Recently purchased the car at a dealership who claims to have changed the oil. Is it possible the light simply came on for scheduled maintenance, despite having already been changed?

The best way to determine why the light came on is to have a mechanic or auto parts store use their scanner to check the error codes produced which caused the light to come on. They will be able to tell you what the codes mean. If it is a reminder to ... 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse

I Just Bought A 1990 Audi V8 Quattro. I Changed The Oil And Filter Because It Was Losing Oil Pressure And The Oil Light Was Blinking Even Though It Was Right Up On The Oil Dipstick.

1992 Cutlass Supreme V6 3.4L The oil pressure seems to cap at 20psi (I believe that is the measurement) and when the car idles the pressure drops into the red zone on the oil pressure gauge and the "Check Gages" light comes on, yes it is spelled Gages on the dash. I finished driving home and didn't hear any noise, I checked the oil on the dipstick and it was a nice looking color, I recently changed 2 months ago, it was in the cross-hatch range for good operation and I didn't see any silvery s

My maintenance required light changed from green (slowly) to red. i am a few hundred miles overdue for an oil change, which i'm doing today- how do I reset that light? I believe the oil change factor is the reason for the light change, because it's happened that way before when I brought it in to be changed. To save $, I've started doing the oil changes myself, but have no idea how to reset that thing.  Also (in case it isn't due to needing an oil change) what might that light be indicating? 

I believe that there is a small slot, perhaps under the maintenance light, but somewhere on the speedometer, that allows you to put your ignition key into it and press in order to reset the light. ... 1994 Honda Accord

1966 Pontiac catalina with 389 engine has light knocking mostly heard under light load. Recently replaced lifters, no change. Kind of random timing on knock, was hoping it might be the fuel pump. Oil pressure is good, 20 psi at idle, 40 or so cruising. I don't have a lot of experience in old engine repair.

My truck will knock if I buy gas from my closest station, and not start right up. I bought gas in town, and it all goes away. Regular at both stations. Not all gas stations sell the same mix. Try another station. Make sure your car doesn't require pr ... Pontiac Catalina

I get like 50 miles to a quarter tank, that is bad. I ran some BG 44K thru it, still drinks gas, no check engine light, it also passed Colorado emmisions. Not sure what else to check, will try the engine gas filter next. Any ideas?

Hi,Okay. You want to first make sure that the engine air filter is clean. \015\012 If it is then the other parts that will cause this is either bad oxygen\015\012 sensors or a bad MAP sensor. Most of the time if there is not any \015\01 ... 2001 Daewoo Lanos

I wouldn't recommend synthetic oil for a car that appears to have a small leak. Synthetic oil is very thin and will find that smallest of leaks and leave you adding oil all the time. Considering the length of your commute, I'd go with a heavier oil ... 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

I have a 99 Saturn SL2 with 180,000 miles. I have "slime" in the oil when I take off the Oil cap. I also burn through 1 quart of oil every 1000 miles. I change and flush my oil every 3000 for the life of the car. (I drain the old oil, fill it with cheap oil, run the car for a a few minutes, then drain and put in good oil and filter.) It looks good when I first change the oil but the slime always come back. I fear a head gasket, and other ideas?

I have a 2001 Durango 4.7 with 131,000 miles,oil has always been changed every 7,000 with Mobil 1 synthetic. I have been reading all the nightmares about sludge with these engines, but never had a problem until now. I just changed the oil and noticed when I removed the oil filter there was no oil draining from it, the oil pressure is good but,has started tapping upon start up that last approx a couple of minutes. Any idea why oil pressure would be good with no oil getting to filter?

Recently I have seen a larger than normal number of oil filters that are empty when removed for service. I have not cut any open yet to verify why, but I suspect that the internal drain-back valve used in many are defective and are not allowing oil t ... 2001 Dodge Durango

Well it could be a new problem or something related to the motor mount work.The oil pressure switch grounds the light when the oil pressure drops below 10psi. How much oil is in the crankcase is not usually the issue.Of course if there is no ... 2004 Chrysler Pacifica

I own a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 4 x4. It has 201,000 miles on it. When I am in a hurry and run it pretty hard to get somewhere, the red oil light comes on and, maybe it's my imagination, but I seem to smell oil burning. The oil light goes off after the truck has been cut off for awhile. This might help. I recently got the oil changed at Wal-Mart. They commented on their billing sheet that there was an oil leak before the truck was brought in for an oil change. I didn't think much of it because I
