Hello There

You need to clean or replace your Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. Judging by the age it best to go for a replacement. Common problem with 6 cyclinder E36 models.

Please rate me.

Thanks you

Hi there.
Well because its a auto box you could have a band or pump problem which is in the gear box and is bathed in auto matic fluid oil and that could be your problem as the bands do wear down fast on a lot of cars and BMW with there power that could be you.
So take it to a auto box people and get it checked out.

I have a 2007 BMW 530i . I've changed the rear breakes , but I can't reset the break light at the dash board. Can you help me please? Thank you


This is my best guess - on the previous generation of BMWs, if the light does not go out on its own, you turn the key to the Run position without starting the car. Wait 90 seconds.
Give it a try.

Please help.I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan.When I start the van the rear break lights would turned on automatically.When I step on the break the lights stays the same,no indication of breaking from the rear...


You have a bad break switch. It is located under your dash, above your break pedal. The stem of your break pedal, when pushed down, activates the break switch. When you push, the break light comes on. It is chrome looking. It is a round cylinder. That should fix you up. If you need anything else, please let me know. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

My BMW 325xi started to brake automatically


It sounds like a malfunctioning caliper. Look through your wheels and see if the rotors are bluing (excessive heating).

Electrical cut


ok there is a loose wire and when your rpms get to arround 5-6 im sure your motor starts to wiggle and jiggle a bit and they touch thats where your cut appears but at idle id think they are apart eanough to keep the electricity from jumping get it checked out at a mechanic or try and locate the wire yourself

Asc light comes on and engine cuts out


When your ASC light is on this is to let you know your Automatic Stability Control system is switched off press the ASC button Till light is off /ASC is on this works with your rev limiter and should stabilized your idle. If the problem persists have your throttle control unit checked as thi can trigger the ASC light as well and may also activate the ABS light if not fixed
