New to BMW Forum....
Not long ago purchased a 2000 (W) BMW 316i in Dark Blue, 90,000 miles on the clock with FSH, Leather Seats (Leatherette??) lol
After driving off after my purchase the Check Engine Light came on , Lots of play in steering Wheel, Coolant Leak and tappety sound from engine.
* Fixed Tappet sound by removing all spark plugs (1 was quite loose), Cleaning and then refitting.
* Visited Mechanic who carried out a diagnostic test (o2 Sensor 1 + 2, MAF, ICV,Crankshaft sensor?) - Cleared codes and did not return (maybe due to the spark plug issue)
* Had new Passenger Side Wishbone fitted
* Mechanic showed me where leak was coming from (after spending over £100 didn't want to spend anymore fixing this yet so i removed the pipe and performed a temporary fix)
