  1. BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi, based on the good discussions, it seems my E90 has developed that dreaded intermittent wheel speed sensor hiccup that makes DTC warnings come on at random.

    When started from cold it misfires for a minute or so until warm. When driving the throttle will suddenly become inactive. The car will drive at around 2000 RPM, no more. It will not accelerate even if the accelerator is floored. This might last a second or several minutes. It is entirely random...

    Hi there, I'm concerned that a local garage of mine has steam washed my engine down to remove oil and in the process has damaged my electrics. I'll explain as briefly as possible and see what you guys think. Whilst doing some basic work on my 330ci the garage said that they could also sort my...

    Hi, I am starting to get a 'low coolant' warning light on the dashboard at random times, but usually after accelerating. Can be when it's cold or when warm. However when checking, the coolant level is fine. Any ideas what it could be ?

    Applies to E34 and E32, same parts are used on both cars. Yesterday I came into the garage and hear the chime constantly making noise, gong, gong, gong. Could not be a weak battery, as I had the battery on the charger and the battery is just 6 months old. Anyway, tested the battery, o.k...
