What you need to do is get a scanner and pull the code(s). They will help you to know where you need to investigate next...REMEMBER the code is a clue NOT necessarily the issue. For example, a lean condition can manifest as a missfire, and you can get oxygen sensor limit errors...and these items are registering correctly (meaning replacement does nothing). Pull the codes and go from there.

Service engine soon in sebring 1997


You can still drive it with the engine light on. It may not run too well or you may not notice any difference at all. If the light flashes on and off while driving then you shouldn't drive it because damage to the catalytic converter may be a result. I hope this helps.

1997 328 i convertable the engine lite just went on just bought


When the "Check Engine" light comes on in the 1997 BMW 328iC, the problem is 99% Emissions Systems. First thing to check are the Four (4) Oxygen Sensors. That is correct your convertible has four O2 sensors. They are about $100 to $118 each, online.

I have done this procedure it is not a big deal. It just requires four sensors. More than likely you and your car experience one or several of the following:
  • Engine will not accelerate and backfires
  • Check Engine light is illuminated
  • Irregular idle during warm-up
  • Irregular idle with warm engine
  • Poor engine performance
  • Fuel consumption is high
  • Driving performance is weak
The O2 sensors reduce emissions and tells the computer how to mix your gasoline to air mixture going into your engine.

Since you say you have a 328, they have either two or four O2 sensors. The 1997 BMW 328 Convertible has four. Your chassis style is also referred to as a E36 series. Your engine is a 6 cyl M52.

Good luck
