Power steering The power steering on a bmw 328i (e36) is not functioning properly. the power steering works then stops and then suddenly resumes as if nothing is wrong. When the steering becomes stiff while turning the steering wheel then sounds like "springs pulling" I've checked the transmission fluid all fine there. any suggestions??

Bad electrical signal to the pump. pumps thinks its going fast. the valve that controls the fluid flow to make steeering stiffer at higher speeds is confused.

use electrical contact cleaner and d-electric grease to fix contact problems.
pop the hood and cleans as many connections as possible, let dry and apply a small amount of di-electric grease to those connections, then re-connect the plugs. even do the dme connections to the main wiring harness.

this will solve many electrical contact problems seen in older cars.

Sudden loss of power while driving


Hi There, You need to check you automatic transmission fluid (ATF) levels which controls your power steering, if it is drained you need to top it up if the container is cracked, you need to change it. Next, your engine needs retuning to stem down the excessive revving.
Cheers,

I have a bmw 523i se and the windscreen wipers wont work have tried changing the fuse in the glove compartment but still wont work


it's normal, windshield wipers in bmws are connected to the speedometer since the old E36 3series, so they stop whenever you stop your car. If they start again once the car moves there's nothing wrong with your car!

Check engine light


I *think* that's the solenoid on the charcoal canister which is part of the vapor return system. Do you smell fuel? Probably should get a pro to diagnose that one. However you can find the canister under the spare tire if you want to have a look for something obvious.
