question about bushings
Last week my '96 328i was at a mechanic to diagnose a climate control unit problem, which he determined was a faulty control module. As I picked the car up Friday evening for the weekend, he mentioned the front bushings were also shot.
Driving the car this weekend, I can really tell there's a problem, the steering shimmies quite noticeably at times. Strangely, I only noticed this since picking the car up, not before I brought it there. I'm sure I'd have felt this before. It's probably a coincidence, and it was just at the point of becoming noticeable, but is there anything they could have done (loosening something, etc.) ? Sorry for the suspicion.. he also said about nine codes came up when they ran a code check , including some misfiring of the engine, yet the car presently idles so smoothly I can't even tell it's running at times.
Can anyone tell me if bad bushings would be one of those code faults that came up? I'm wondering why they'd otherwise have even looked at the bushings.. they didn't road test the car, in was in the garage only for the climate control problem.
