Jim, Look here! 325CI smokes and stuck in "Limp Mode" Littel help?
Howdy All!! Newbie here!
My buddy has an 03 325CI w/151K on it.
The vehicle has sat for almost a year. We put a new battery in it and it fired right up. It appears to be stuck in "Limp Mode" (2nd or 3rd? gear). It did not reset by following the directions in the owners manual. If we take the oil fill cap off while it is running the car continues to run but it smokes like crazy! When we put the cap back on it eventually clears up. Where should we start looking? Hopefully this has been covered before and you all can steer us in the right direction. OH! there are no/zero codes picked up on a standard OBDII.
Thanks in advanced for the timely responses!
