    You clearly should hav topped using it oce you had a check lightonthe dash & you hear coolant bubbing I's ruined now Sounds like a head gasket or other coolingsystem issues I fail to see why coming here would help All we can do is guess The Limp Mode tells you something I would think I'll stop before I insult you for using it just because it works sometimes Get it into a repair shop & expect a big bill if your keeping it

SOURCE: BMW E90 323I, ABS resetting.

hey hassa, if you swapped an ABS control unit from another vehicle, it needs to be coded to your vehicle. If your vehicle does not recognize the replacement vin, it will set a fault. also, make sure to have the ABS sensors calibrated after the control unit is coded. most dealers charge about 1hr labor to perform coding and sensor calibration.

SOURCE: Nissan Maxima - intermittent daytime running light

This is a common problem for this car. Most likly by the control module.that has cold solder joint inside. You can replace it with a used one; but if the solder joint inside is not reheated/reflowed the same problem will come back soon.

My Bmw High mileage 320i E90 is having oil leaks problems they have changed the oil gaskets pipes from BMW butelp

clean the engine and check where it is coming from. Is it at the front of the rear> do you smell burning oil when you switch off the engine? Clean an area under the engine compartment and see where the oil is dripping from and get back to us. Typical places for leaks are the valve cover gasket, oil filter housing bracket.

I have a bmw 320i and when i start it its fine but only got to drive for 10 mins and it overheats

The first thing to do would be to check the coolant level,then make sure the fan clutch locks up when it gets hot,if coolant is full then start the car and run it until it starts running hot then feel both radiator hoses and see if both top and bottom hoses are hot this will tell you if tstat is opening, if only the top is hot then start with a thermostant, also make sure all fan belts are on and not very loose, i've found some of these older bmw's to have bad head gaskets that make them run hot,start with the test ,and check level first.

E90 6-cylinder VALVETRONIC Engine This is a collection of pictures of the new upcoming 6-cylinder engine for the new E90 3 Series from BMW. It is reported to make approximately 258HP @ 6600rpm and 221lb-ft torque at 2500 rpm, a notable upgrade to keep competitive with other vehicles in this class. If the torque peak is really that low in BMW's notoriously flat powerband, it will be really fun to drive. It utilizes a new magnesium-aluminum alloy crankcase shaving off about 22 pounds. It makes 12% more power and consumes 12% less fuel. It will also be seen in the new 630Ci, X3, X5, Z4, and more. There are numerous other upgrades to this moto thanks ben

Rebuilding a 2006 320d e90

Hi there, I think you might have a main fuse that is blown or a main relay not working. Check also all earthing points as well as the ecu earthing points could have been damaged or having poor contacts.
Let us know how you get on.Cheers.
