The replacement starter may have required installation of shims to ensure correct engagement with the flywheel and that wasn't done. Also, the replacement starter could have been a look-alike-but-not-function-alike item.

You need to wait 1 hour before attempting to put the code in. Either the ignition needs to stay on 1 hour or drive it for 1 hour. If they key is turned off before then, you will need to start again.

Check fuel pump pressure

indicates a brake master cylinder internal failure
take it to a brake specialist shop for a proper diagnosis
If the brake system has not seen a service or component for the past 5 years , a replacement master cylinder is the professional fix

Get the gearbox serviced before it becomes very expensive.

I would check the fuel pump. fuel deed, filters and pump relay.

Here are some suggestions...
For fault 140 thermostat you may also want to check thermostat wiring connector by t-stat and also DME (disconnect inspect clean)
For fault 185 leakage... try this; The wiring to the Fuel tank leak pump chafes on the L/R inner fender liner and cuts the wire in half or opens the insulation and the wire corrodes. Pull the L/R wheel and then remove the fender liner. You will probably see a spot on the liner where the wire has rubbed. Find the break in the wire and fix it. Reroute the wire so it does not chafe again.
For fault 106 replace the brake light switch under the dash

find the pin from bmw/becker or whatever unit you are running.
this is to prevent theft of auto systems.

The usual culprit is the water pump. If you have gone 175k without a new one that is almost amazing; I replaced the one on my 325xi at about 135k. If you are a DIYer, do a youtube search on replacing the pump on a '92 735 to see if you want to take it on. It was super easy on my '02 325. If you can reach the pulley and the pump is bad, you can probably wiggle it. If it moves at all the pump is bad. You might need to go so far as to remove the belts to check. If the pulley is plastic then replace it with the pump as it will likely have a few craks (sic - correct spelling is considered profanity on this site) and may even break taking it off the old pump. I've had good luck with both FCP Euro and Pelican Parts for both quality and prices on parts. One other thing, shortly after replacing my pump I developed a crak (sic) in the expansion tank which will also leak coolant (and cause overheating if you don't keep your radiator topped off) so check that too, maybe even first. Replacing the tank was actually more difficult because after undoing the hoses the tank did not want to pop out but it would be of a different design on your car.

hi,i own a bmw 750i,and went over a hump back bridge to fast and left the ground a bit.since then the rear suspension is jacked right up high permanently and makes a screeching sound like gas is escaping...any ideas??

1988 BMW 7... | Answered on Oct 08, 2017

I would get a connector that is a heat shrink type and put them in it and crimp them in it all together and seal it by heat shrinking the ends.
