check your vacuum hoses and also check your intake tube, my 325 i did same and found out was just one vacuum hose and i had a rip in my intake tube coming off the throttle body.

How many miles do i need to drive to have the computer re-ready to accept obd codes?


200 miles is more than enough. p0420 is a cat code meaning the cat in the exhaust is not doing its job. you need to make sure there are no exhaust leaks before the downstream (last one) o2 sensor. if you can get all but 1 monitor to set without the check eng light coming on, you will pass pa emmissions.

Fuel gauge registers only half full after fill up. Replaced sensor, fuel pump sending unit and instrument gauges. BMW Z 4. 2003


There is nothing else to replace ... presuming you did everything correctly and the replacement parts were not faulty, I suggest you live with it. Keep track of the miles you drive and fill up when you have driven about 1/2 the estimated miles per tank for best results. I.E.: you get 10 MPG - your tank is 20 gallons = 200 miles per tank ... fill up every 100 or so miles.

OR

You could take it to the BMW place and let them fix it.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

Should a 1999 323i BMW transmission fluid be changed when it's mileage is 197,000?????


BMW says that the transmission fluid is permanent. However, you have to keep in mind that they do not greatly care whether a car lasts 200k miles or 300k miles, so long as it makes it though the warranty period.
BMW also said that the previous generation (e36) fluid was permanent, and that has proven to be untrue.
I believe that the 1999 323 uses the later, really expensive, synthetic transmission fluid, so brace yourself for a hefty bill.
I recommend replacing the older generation fluid every 50k miles and the newer generation (yours) fluid every 100k miles. My wife's 330 is approaching 100k miles and I intend to replace her fluid soon.

Starts fine & stops in 3-5 minutes or driving in 1-3 miles.


Did you replaced your whole distributor or just the cap and the rotor? Have you check the pressure on you fuel line it could be your fuel pump.

How to reset brake light after changing pads.


Hi Peters6709,
Sorry to tell you, but you need to replace the pad-wear sensors as well. They are the little trapezoid pieces that hang inside the tops of the inside pads. They should run about $10 each. Once replaced, disconnect the battery completely for about 10 minutes, if you have a stock radio keep the code handy.

Next time check the pads every 10-12K miles. I have been running the SAME pad wear sensors on my Z3 for the past 2 pad changes now after making the same mistake the first time.

Best of luck!

I've been told the planetary gear is going out on my BMW


could have been trans fluid you saw on the floor years ago,,,if its manual trans there is no dipstick,,,maybe this one just is unlucky,not all cars even of the same modeland year perform the same,,everything is the same but diffrent,,,why dont you go get the trans fluid changed and see how much fluid comes out and if any metal comes ouot in the fluid,,,,then change it and see howit is,,other than that start pricing a new or used trans,,probably cheaper then tearing the old one down and fixing it
