Depending on what repairs have to be done on most of your high end vehicles such as Lexus,BMW,Infinity and other cars in this group the repairs will cost much more because of the make of car.Dont get me wrong there excellent cars but when they break down its always going to be a pricey proposition

Bmw 3 series electrical faults

Hi sounds like the same problem I had crankshaft sensor my battery light came on and the engine would cut out sometimes would start straight away other times took 5mins to start again.
But would get a garage to check fault codes costs about 40pound but could save you 100's as it may be a faulty alternator/battery.

*Owner of Mecedes C230 Model 2004. 271 engine. Done 85K miles * Check engine light come on when speed at around 135km & misfiring. * Switch off & restart the engine, is ok but misfiring again...

I know what the problem is. It's going to cost u about $25,000 to fix the problem. Just buy a new car and dump that crappy piece of metal in a river. Mercedes Benz will never be on my wish list ever again. Even the mechanics can't figure out the problem with my check engine light after I pay $2,000 for a check engine light service. They F***** it up even more. My car now is in line to get a heart transplant because it's dying.

When it idles for a while and then you step on the gas blue smoke comes out of the tail pipe 2004 bmw 545i

Change PCV valves and are located on the lids of valves, when they are bad, so the car smokes just as you write. Here is a picture, price cca 20usd, replacing time: 5min does easy!!!!2aa1f9b.jpg

I took my car to the repair place because i have a coolant leak.. The guy said that i need my water pump replaced and it will cost $600. I called auto zone and the guy said that a water pump for my car...

Labour cost man, I don't know how much the repair shop owners pay to their mechanics, but yes that's over charged, If they work 6 hours on that engine to replace the water pump, it shouldn't cost more than $240, and this price includes all their costs and labor and benefit. try asking them how many hours are they gonna work on that car, and multiply that by $40/hr, it shouldn't take them over 4 hours to install a pump.

Need a Belt Diagram for 2001 BMW 325ci

Whether you plan on DIY maintenance or not, I suggest you invest in a service manual for your car. When available, I like the Haynes manuals better than Chilton.

We have one with each vehicle and if you don't decide to do something yourself, it still serves as a guide so you can see if a quoted labor cost is justified or not.
It's a one-time cost that will pay itself back each time you refer to it:

Abs light on following service

Hi , I wouldnt say that this is a common problem but it is known by bmw , it may be worth booking your car into a bmw agent to get it checked, there may be a charge to check this but you may be able to get this part replaced as a goodwill gesture rather than pay for it yourself , regards mark

I drive a 1999 bmw 520 the abs and traction control warning lights stay on when the car is running. What is the problem?

this is to do with the sensor leads on the brakes, cost around £40.00 each from main dealer, mines the same. Bmw fixed the problem by changing one lead and charged me a fortune, then the other lead decided to play up, so best to replace them all.

Check engine light

Check engine light could be on for many reasons. You never know what is wrong.

You would have to take it to Autozone and ask them to scan it (free). The only problem is that if there are multiple failure, it can only show 1 or 2 error code.

So you may not know if there's MORe problems AFTER you fix the first set of code.

Good Luck.
