kick car left rear tire to activate nop soun sensor.

Well, the key question is how much oil are you consuming...Quart in 600 miles or more is considered normal, but I prefer 1 quart in 2500 miles...

If high oil consumption, consider hotter plugs, and decide if engine work makes sense. If only a cylinder or two, try hotter plugs in those cylinders

If no oil consumption, look to weak spark, damaged wires, etc.

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.

You have to remove all the plastic covers on top of the engines, but be very careful removing the spark lugs, if you break the porcelain spark plugs they have to be screwed out which is EXTREMELY expensive!

is this the inner or outer handle?

You need to remove the top cover 1st. Then remove the gray trim covers on the left and right banks by pulling straight up.You will find individual coils in each cylinder. Disconnect the connector of the coil and pull the coil straight up.The plugs are under each coil.

I would make sure all the air has been bled out of the abs unit and all other components. Any air in the brake system will cause a spongy pedal and is not acceptable.

won't crank????? Starter motor probably. Crank but won't run...fuel pump, crank sensor, coil pack and/or computer.
could also be the relay sending full juice to the starter motor.

1. Check up the engine coolant level.
2. Check up the engine oil level.
3. Check up the cylinder heads gaskets (bank1 & bank2) of the V8 4.4 liters BMW engine.
