Tip & How-To about 2001 BMW Z3

Taking care of your Cloth-Top

Do not wash the cloth top except when needed, and then use only RaggTopp Cleaner. Vacuum the top before washing your car. be careful to not get any car wash mixture on the top as it will remove some of the protectant (dish detergent will remove all of it!). Routine cloth top cleaning is vacuuming with a brush attachment. This should be done before each car wash and after driving in dusty areas. Washing should be done only if the top has become dirtied with bird droppings, tree sap, soot fallout, mud, etc.

I put diesel in my unleaded feul tank now it won't start how do I fix it

i've been so stressed and so tired that I've done things that resulted in more of an un-needed siedetrack or difficulty on top of the regular situation, so I'm really feelin' the situation. I'm no expert but I have heard of another person who did just that. The fuel tank had to be taken out and washed out of all traces of diesel. Gas had to be flushed down the fuel line (I think, using its' own fuel pump to wash it out as well), to remove all traces of diesel, and the throttle body had to be cleaned out with carb cleaner, and mopped up with a lintless cloth. I think that one or two quotes from repair shops will tell you pretty much the same - more or less. Rats! Hope you can find a good old-timer mechanic with compassion.

How to wash the soft top of a roadster

Use as little water as possible and only a small amount of car wash. Don't go through the car wash.

If you have small stains you're trying to get out try something like Meguiars Convertible Top Cleaner

what makes a taurus se engine shake at ideal but when speed up smoods out

Generally, this is caused by either a vacuum leak somewhere on the top of the engine or dirty fuel injectors. Listen carefully for a vacuum leak [sucking air sound] at or near the top of the engine. Another way to locate a vacuum leak is to spray carburetor cleaner [aerosol can] at small areas, where there are vacuum hoses or intake gaskets. When you find the area of the leak, the carb cleaner will get sucked into the leak. This will generally cause the engine to run better.
Try adding fuel injection cleaner to the gasoline tank. I recommend the Chevron Techron brand of fuel injection cleaner. Advance Auto and Costco carry this brand.

What's your problem?need to remove smoke odors from car

there are several types of sprays to clean interriors. one is for carpets and fabric other type is for plastic other is for leather or vynil.

first of all you need to clean interriors by sweeping it with vacuum cleaner and with water and natural soap. do not use lots of water since you will need to dry it later.

after cleaning interrior you need to proper liquid to clean related surface and wiping it with a soft quality cloth.

in general fabric surfaces like top lining and seats and carpets require two pcs of sprays(multi purpose interrior cleaner). if you seats are leather covered you need leather contidioneer. after cleaning fabric and leather. use plastic cleaner in pressureized spray cans. after wiping off all left cleaning agents, clean windows with only alcohol with a microfiber cloth.

this will take normally 1 to 2 hours. use gloves.
