thanks bru ..........the one on the radiator seems to be working fine but not sure of the one on the head ............is that the one next to the oil filter housing i see that one has 4 (four) wires coming out
Hi thanks for your feedback ...... but i have sorted out that problem everything is working 100% but now another problem popped up i cleaned my car on Saturday and pulled it in the garage Sunday morning when i wanted to take a drive the car would not start ........just swinging .......and if you wondering if i cleaned the engine, no........... no water over the engine .........any ideas guys
Yes the car crank but just don't want to start ..........i had the computer plugged in to check for any faults but no faults on the print out, was wondering if it cant be my feul pump if you need any more info please let me know and i will gladly provide you with what you need ..............starting get sick of this car ...........
Well the car is 15 years old. With any car that age you will start having issues with it over time. Sensors and electronics wear down and stop functoning over time. My door actuator is the same. Dont hate the car becasue of a few minor faults.
To see if the fuel pump works you can remove the rear seats and listen to it when someone starts the car. It should be audible without the seats in place, or you can get a volt meter and test it that way.
LOL .this minor faults costed me R10000 so far .........i had a guy out at my place yesterday and did a diagnostic test on my car cleared a couple of faults and also discovered that my crank sensor might be faulty, as he was playing with that wire the wanted to start .....so now i must replace that crank sensor .....the Agents (BMW) quoted me R1600 for that sensor but for now i am looking for a good second hand one ..........any ideas where i can purchase one
These gremlins must stay away now, but ya my car is running nice now but still needs to replace the alternator bearing and rear wheel bearing ..........the 18" Rims i had on the car chowed my rear wheel bearings ..................
