Question about 2007 BMW X5 3.0si SAV
I would get the OBD codes read as will tell you the faulty sensor/switch etc, will save you time and money as you may change the fuel filter and it may not be that

you can buy a cheap scanner that will put this light out,i have a mechanic working for me that stands on the roof ,tweeks the radio and has one foot on the brake whilst turning on the lights and he puts out nearly every service light you can think of but he wont show anyone least of all me,but if it its a 99 model iam sure you can put the light out by using a 12v electrical screwdriver with the light inside and a cable comes out the end with a clip .then going across the pins on the special BMW connector block it will go out with the resistance of the bulb across it ,but ??big but ?does it have an OBDII connector or the round BMW type because we dont have OBDII on pre 2005 cars here in spain .Now we do and guess what ??its all encrypted software used ...makes me a dinasaur

this could be caused by poor gas, or intake and exhaust vanos solenoids, first try filling the tank with high test gas with low ethenol content,run through a couple of tanks, if still occuring your solenoids may be gummed up, they are located at the front of the cyl head and help in by 1 10mm screw, remove and blow clean with compressed,also be sure to change your oil more freequently than cbs indicator suggests.

This is a mileage comtrolled light and the oxagen sensers and other sensers are to be checked and or replaced with new ones. The old sensers are likly to be OK but for best performance they should be changed anyway as failure causes all kinds a mixture problems that if left unrepaired can kill the car nd or cuse very expensive emission control repairs that can be avoided.
