Return to where the $4K of work was done and suggest that the "mechanic" who signed off on the job go back and find what repair was done wrong.

2004 BMW X5 3.0i engine starting problem


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

My bmw x5 2002 will not start. well it starts then stops about 15 r so seconds later. it has done this before but it started back up. at this time i was low on gas, i then filled up and it didnt happen...


We had a 2001 X5. When the Fuel gauge hit 1/4, it was time to fill up or you were stranded. I think it's the pump if it is below 1/4. We also received error engine codes when this happened. All you have to do after you refuel is to reset the code (drive with the code for awhile, it will reset after a few miles) and you're alright. The pump is somewhat expensive to change out if you take it to the dealer.

I'm going to go out on a limb and sugest that you look for melted wires in the engine compartment. That would explain the burning plastic smell. And a bare wire grounding on your engine could cause about 100 diferent problems.

hi, this is a low milage for a turbo failure , it may be worth asking for a goodwill payment where BMW will pay for the cost of the turbo. It all depends on how much fuss you make, hope this is of some help.
