HELP!!!! Check Engine light on... at wits end !!!
Hey, i'm a first time bmw owner of 2000 323i. Absolutely love this car!!!!
My problem is, my check engine light is on, and it won't go off. I ran into this problem a couple weeks ago, and it ended up being my gas cap, and the light would turn off. Now its constantly on. Alot of you are gonna tell me to go run the codes, but problem is, i live in a small small town, the closest place to go would be 3 hours away, and right now its -40 and the roads are s**t.
The car feels like it has lost power and throttle response, unless i step on it (i was thinking im misfiring and to replace plugs). Also car doesn't start unless its atleast -20. thats celsius by the way. But thats due to BMW not having block heaters.
I need any suggestions to fix my problem until i can get to the city safely. If you want more info please dont hesitate to ask.
