my motor is a 728i made in 2000
I didn't use the car for a few months over winter and it got buried in snow!
I know its August now, but I don't use the car often!!
Anyway, ever since its had no power when I start it from warm.
Took it and had a diag done and they told me it was the cam sensor.
As I currently live in Ukraine, the word foreigner and lots of money
immediately enter the minds of garages here!! (I am a brit)
And of course they didn't give me a printout of the diag!
So I thought I would replace it myself, does anybody know where the cam position sensor is on the 2.8 straight 6?
Also, the weather is damn hot here and my aircon isn't working any more, after the aforementioned winter.
At first I thought the gas had leaked out due to the cold weather (-29) and the fact I had not used the car for a long time, but tonight while having a tinker around I noticed that when I switch on the aircon the pump is not activating at all.
So now I am assuming that the gas maybe ok and its an electrical problem caused by being frozen for a long time. Any Ideas where to look?
Any help appreciated!
