What does the check engine light look like in a BMW?

ive been lucky enough to have driven a few of these vehicles. The "check engine light" is usually on the left side of the dashboard indicators and is actually a small message that reads "service engine soon".

Can you recommend a reliable car repair shop in Dallas?

If you are in dallas proper, no. BUT if you can venture north a piece..I broke down in denton around 1 a.m. and was towed to a place in Gainesville, had to leave my firebird there with a note and expected to get ripped off. I called the next day and the guy told me it was done, charged me for 15 minutes of labor because he figured the problem out in 1 and took about 14 to change the part (difference between "Mechanic" and "Service Tech"). The place was Kings Garage, that was about 15 years ago, so hopefully still a good, honest place..

The spark plugs are screwed into the head on the passenger side of the motor. Theres six sparkplug cables connecting them to the distributor, just pull them off and the plugs are there in the recesses. Don't forget wich cable goes to wich plug because your car will not run if they aren't in the correct place.

How do you change the oil level sensor on BMW 325i?

If your car is an E30 ( 1983 - 1991 ) the oil level sender is located on the drivers side of the motor toward the front and down low below the alternator. It's in top of the oil pan. Unplug the wire connector and unscrew the sender. It has a fairly large black plastic round top. Pull it out of the oil reservoir and wipe it with a rag before taking it away from the hole. You might be able to clean it sufficiently to make it work correctly. To test it pull up on the float and test continuity ( ohm meter ) between the two leads. To install the new one clean off the surfaces, screw it in ( use a new rubber seal ) and plug the connecter back in.

How do you reset the oil service light manually on a 2000 BMW 323 E46?

Found this on another site. It worked on my E46 2002 Compact.

BMW 2001 to current  Ignition Off (Position 0)  Press and Hold the trip odometer button while turning key to position 1 (ACCESSORY)  Keep the button depressed (about 5 secs.) until you see "Oil Service" or "Inspection" with "Reset" or "Re" in the display*  Press the button again and hold for approx. 5 secs. until "Reset" or "Re" flashes  While the display is flashing, briefly press the button again to reset the Service Interval. After the display has shown the new interval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 seconds Note: that if the "Reset" or "Re" does not flash, then you have not met the minimum consumption level and cannot reset

  • Note: On vehicles with "High" cluster, you will also see the amount of fuel (in litres) remaining until next service

Can you take tramadol and gabapentin together?

I take it now and the side effects is it makes you unusually tired about 2.5 hours into the dosage. If you are sitting down at a desk or other stationary place you are assured to fall asleep.

I find it best to take at bed time ... and you will definitely have some weird dreams.

Have been on it for close to 18 months now

How do you reset the oil service light manually on a 2003 BMW 325i E46?

The only way I have found so far is to buy a service reset tool. Go to http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=375 and you can buy one with a built in code reader as well. I would imagine there is a way to do it without the tool, but I have not discovered it as yet. edit by copteaser: There is a manual way and it's farely easy.

the source of my info you can find at the following urls:

http://www.e46.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38&highlight=&sid=69344d53c41665daa55f062d06e6eafd RESETTING OIL SERVICE INDICATOR:

If your OBC needs to be reset after completing your oil change, there are two ways. NOTE: If you miss a step, just turn the key back off and try again:

A. Model Year 1999 to Mid-2000: You should have the older round 20-pin DLC connector under your hood behind the battery terminal, you need to use a small length of wire to connect (short) pins 7 and 19 for 3-5 seconds with the ignition key in position 1 (Accessory).

B. After Mid-2000: You should not have the 20-pin DLC connector. You only need to hold the left odometer reset button while turning the key to position 1 (Accessory). Keep holding the button for 5 or so seconds until any of the following shows in the display: OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION with RESET or RE. Release the button and press it again for another 5 or so seconds until RESET or RE flash. While the display flashes, press the button one more time briefly. If done correctly, END SIA should show up for a few seconds. All done.

How do you change replace cabin filter in 2001 Honda Odyssey?

Odyssey cabin airfilter changeTry this PDF. http://www.micronair.us/assets/pdfs/82.pdf I can not vouch for it, but it looks good.

The PDF, however, seems to be a little off for my 2001 EX. I could not remove the metal restraining bar for the glove compartment because one of the left screws was behind the dashboard. The work-around is to remove the plastic cover near the passenger side kick plate, remove the three visible screws (two on right, one of the ones on the left) on the metal restraining bar and then rotate the bar down to expose the filter cover. You can then remove and replace the old filter.

An additional note, the glove compartment makes it difficult to pull the filter out directly. I did manage to bend the original Honda filter slightly. The new FRAM filter I purchased, however, was a smidge bigger and not as flexible. I ended up breaking the back brace to slide the new filter in. Also, make a note of the air flow. It should be from right to left.

How do you reset main inspection and emission inspection done on time on Mercedes w211 e class 2002 52?

Inspection main Reset Mercedes W211E '02Normally, for any of the high-value European cars, the mechanic will have a hand held computer that plugs into the car's computer, which tells it that the inspections have been done on time and resets it with new dates. Some of these computers are avilable online.. but they're not necessarily legal. your best bet is to have a dealership do the reset. it's not expensive, can be done almost anywhere, and most importantly, will get rid of your headache.

You can reset the interval service by your self. If you wants I can send the explanation to you.

Where is the fuse for Infinity I30 radio 2001?

Try thisMy I30 is a 1999. The fuses are lower left side of dash, between the steering wheel and emergency brake. The fuse that controls the radio is labeled "AUDIO". I had a situation where the fuse blew (almost) every time I turned left. Dealership wanted $600-$700 to tear into the electrical system. Local mechanic jiggled a couple wires, and I haven't had the problem in 1-2 yrs.

It is located under the hood in the fuse box next to the battery. It is listed as audio.
