It could be an exhaust leak. After a while the heat in the exhaust can cause it to expand enough at a joint to cause a leak. Get it warm drive it up on a lift raise and while it's running get under the car and listen for a leak. Hope this helps

How do you fix a flat tire


there are a lot of quick fixes for tyres but generally anything sprayed into the tyre will not allow a proper repair
Replace the tyre with the spare and have a tyre shop carry out the repair. The case of the tyre has to drilled out to get the puncture repair plug in place and the rubber inside the case has to be perfectly clean so that the plug flap will adhere to the rubber for a good seal
anything you spry in will prevent this from happening
You may have to replace the tyre if you have been running on a flat tyre as the condition destroys the inner side walls.

Where can I find the full service manual for Bmw x1 2011? Brake pad, disc replacement, suspension, steering system alignment and balancing etc... Also how to repair the punctured run flat tyre on Bmw x1???


Take the flat tyre to a tyre shop and have it repaired there as believe or not , puncture repair requires the correct tools and procedure for safety. As for the rest a good workshop manual should have that information or get a service hand book from the dealer service centre.

I have this strange groan or humming sound which seems to come from the front wheel drive, as i am mechanic i have changed the trans oil, recoed the power strg pump, as well as jacked the front wheels and...


pull the front wheel bearings as they may be starting to fail or need new grease .or adjustment. drive the car slowly turning the wheel to almost full lock and see if you can hear a clicking sound ( CV joints needing replacement) . The humming sound will be from a harmonic vibration so check that the drive axles are dead straight and not bent marginally.. Check that where the axles are in the diff that the bearings/bushes are not worn allowing the drive shaft to wobble slightly at speed.. If the tread pattern is anything but highway (Partially off road or snow ) then the tread pattern may be a contributing factor.

Front passenger side thumping at very low speeds


check if you tires have rayon cords or steel belts. this is a problem associated with the older tyres that had rayon cords as the main structure of the tyre. When left standing after running and allowed to cool the rayon belts actually took on a flat spot on the bottom and the noise lasted until the tyre warmed up enough for the tyre pressure to make the tyre round again. In extreme cold it may be the same for steel belted radials as the flat bottom of the tyre would hold the shape until the rubber warmed up .

My 2008 ultima tires will leak air to the extent they are almost completely flat. It started with the passenger side rear almost completely flat. I would fill with air and it will last for 2-5 days. Now...


Your tyres need checking for slow punctures or leaking valves. If you want to do it yourself. You'll need a tub or pool big enough for a complete wheel. Fill it with water, then, remove one wheel at a time and put it in the tub/pool. look for bubbles, the puncture is where the bubble come from.

Of course you could go to a tyre shop and get them to check, once done and you know your tyres are in good order, the only other thought is that it may be someone having fun at your expense, you could get some lockable valve caps.

I hear a flapping sound from the tyres while driving


Look under the car for a piece of flat black rubber that is coming loose. This is a common problem with many cars that have scrapped the bottom on curbings and such.

It is normal, if you're using low profile tyres or having too high tyre pressure. Observe the manual.

I have a orange warning light flasing on my mini cooper 51 plate and i do0nt no wat it is can u help?? the symbol has a (!) on it? there is a button with the exact same symbol under my handbrake


This is the tyre pressure indicator. It shows that one of the tyres is losing pressure through a calve leak or puncture, or can also be triggered after you get new tyres or rotate the tyres.

The method to re-set the tyre pressure warning light is as follows:

Turn the ignition to position 2 (ignition on but motor not started). Press and hold the button under the handbrake until the warning light on the dashboard comes on for several seconds. Start the engine. Drive the car normally for several minutes. This will cause the system to re-set to the current tyres and pressures you have. It will then only turn the warning light on if the pressures change - for example if you get a puncture.

Are my tires causing my car to swerve and follow the cracks?


Usually caused by unusually wide tyres/wheels. This is called in the UK 'tramlining' and is nothing to worry about though can be disconcerting. Owing to the increased width of Z3 spec. tyres over standard tyres there is more of a tendency to follow abrupt changes in the road surface. Keep those hands at 'Ten to Two' on the steering wheel.
