Did you replace the spark plugs with the same brand recommended by ? Might also what to go over all the wiring harnesses, you disconnected when replacing the exhaust. Might of pinched a wire.

I have a bmw 318i s reg every time we open the door the hazzard lights start flashing the car will start but the hazzards come on whilst driving every thirty seconds the fob no longer works so are using...


That's unusual if the fob is related to key less entry. If not disregard this message but my repair manual states that the batteries are always charging whilst the car is on with the key in it. I've obviously have been trying to get the information for my Screen for too long.

Rumbling noise when in 2/3/4 gear


When you think the engine is really powerful even my dads one makes that sound. I think it's the parts like airbags, handbrake area which have degraded due to Aging.

I have bmw 318I the oil indicator for motor appear when use break


The engine is low on oil. but assuming it is not.
The engine is either idling to low .
The engine oil pressure itself is low. The engine oil pressure switch is leaking or not reading the oil pressure in the car.
I assume there is not knocking noise from the engine.
I would check for any oil leaks on the engine .
IF there are no leaks , I would change the oil pressure sesnor or switch first .
This could lead into major engine work.

Good luck
