NEWBIE in Mass here! 2001 740iL
Hey group - how goes the battle?
2001 BMW 740iL Impala Brown Metallic - 152K miles. I'm the 2nd owner. Had it shipped up from Texas!
I just bought my first E38 about two weeks ago. Got her on the road and loved it --- for the first 10miles. Upon 2nd startup, I had no power steering. Looked under the hood and the belt "fell off" - mechanic checked it out and saw the power steering pulley angled. He said the pump blew. So he replaced it..and everything worked great for about 10miles, then I started having some clunking noise under the hood - turns out that 1 of the 3 power steering pulley bolts wiggled it's way out. Had my mechanic put three new bolts in with some loctite - works great, but man is my power steering loud when I'm stopped or even going slow. Anyone deal with this issue?
