Question about 2002 BMW 318
My 2002 BMW 318i car has a problem. When I start the engine it will only last for 5 minutes then it will off immediately, when i Start it again, it will not start. I will have to wait for 30 minutes to start the engine again. There is also a white smoke coming out in the hood. Please help me to fix this problem. There is no mechanic here in our city who knows how to fix bmw cars. Thanks!
Check that your ICV ( idle control Valve) is actually alive. This is what used to happen with mine. It is located right below the throttle flap, you will see a hose going to it. Quick fix: adjust the throttle cable a tiny bit, so you have more revs and engine doesn't shut off easily. Wish you all the best!
