SOURCE: BMW 323i (2000) yellow dashboard light comes on.

Two issues:

Yellow dashboard light: If the light is shaped like a triangle with an apostrophe, then there is likely an issue with your Automatic Stability Control or Automatic Braking System.

This can also be caused by a wheel speed sensor. It is highly recommended that you take the vehicle to your dealer as this is a safety related issue.

Regarding the "skunky smell" (sulfur dioxide, rotten eggs):
If not related to the in-dash lights, then I suspect the engine is running too rich. Check the oxygen sensor signal to the ECU to determine if it is switching normally. The engine has to run a while to get the catalytic converter hot enough to function properly. If the O2 sensors on either side of the converter is getting a bad signal, then the engine will burn too rich and eventually clog the converter.

Just about any autoparts store can read the problem code for free so just drop by one and let them give you the code, then let us know what you find.

Please let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: I have the check engine code 1624 on my 2000 BMW

P1624- Pedal Position Sensor Potentiometer Supply Channel 1 Electrical.
The Siemens MSE43.0 Engine mamagement module is used on more than one model. The different meanings of the P1624 are based on your model.

The P1624 referenced here is for the MS43.0 engine management module with a note for M52 engines (323 / 328) that it is a coolant temperature below thermostat regulating temperature. You should have a M52 engine.

The MS42.0 engine mangement does not list a P1624 code in the Bentley manual.

The fault above cold be set due to the following:· Break/open in the wiring from the DME to the throttle motor(MDK).· The actuator or potentiometers inside the MDK could be contaminated.SOLUTION:
(If any of the faults listed are set) · Using a breakout box check for an open or short to ground in the wiring from the DME to the MDK.· If the wiring is intact then replace the MDK, then the adaptation values in the DME must be
cleared. Failure to do this will result in reoccurring faults.· Switch the ignition off for 30 seconds.· Turn on the ignition and delete the DME adaptations and the fault code
memory · Press the accelerator pedal to wide open throttle(WOT)4 times
MDK- motor driven throttle valve.

Location of oil filter

It is located on the driver's side of the engine. To see what it looks like, go to and enter the last seven digits of your VIN or month and year of production from the car's name plate.
Select Main Group 11 Engine, Subgroup 11 30 Lubrication System, then select diagram "E93 323i Lubricat.syst.-oil filter, heat exchanger"
For example a 2009 323i uses part numbers
11427548032 for aluminum housing, 11427525334 for the oil filter cover (usually plastic) which uses a special wrench for removal, and 11427566327 for the cartridge type oil filter and o-rings.

Yellow oil symbol kept turning on

this could be due to low oil. you need to check your oil level. if it is full i would do an oil change with a bmw filter. there is a difference in filters. the service engine soon light will have to be diagnosed. meaning pull codes to point you in the right direction. great car though. happy holidays

Where do i find the dipstick for my bmw 323i gearbox

YOU DON'T. It does not have one. The fluid is filled and checked from the bottom of the vehicle. I would advise taking it to a professional mechanic who has BMW knowledge. There is a very specific procedure that must be followed.

I have a 1999 bmw 323i. i need to know where the oil filter is and where to put the transmission fluid.

the oil filter is right in the middle of the engine (between the intake and valve cover gasket) near the radiator it has a 36mm cap over the top of it. the transmission doesn't have a dipstick. the fluid must be checked through a fill plug (transmission must be cool and vehicle running) would not attempt in driveway with vehicle on jackstands
