    i had a guy check the amps he said it was ok what should it be ill check it myself to make sure this car runs great other than these two problems with the blower on high that is 12volt line and so is rear defrost thats why i thought it was voltage now i dont know what it is that is the only time it does is blower on high or rear defrost on then it starts running rough when it first started i thought it was fuel pump fuel pressure is great then i narrowed down to the only time it does it is with these 2 things i just dont know thanks if you have any ideas im open

    Hey big, saw many of your posts about junking bmw's when little fix's are all it needs..

    I have a 1994 525i AUTO, my problem is rarely my transprogram light would come on and car revs really high. my Mec, said i need a new driveshaft mount..
    Yesterday i was driving and took a turn while acc and it reved high now the car shifts to 1st fine, but when it goes to shift itself to 2nd or 3rd, the car revs to about 4-5k and stumbles to shift, if it misses the trans program light comes on. Any idea what i need to do to fix this?
    I was told the tranny is good cause when you shift to drive the car drops and reverse the car lifts (thats how you tell if its a good tranny)

    Big Evil, I've had a frightening experience lately with my Sat Nav/Radio/CD and wipers failing in the middle of journey, BMW has said that they both units have to be replaced. Have you heard of anything like that ?

    Hey Big Evil, had a question about something you posted on Jetty's 325i no start topic. I am curious as to where that crank sensor is...my buddy told me that was the problem and I think I might have found it, but not sure. Does it plug into the Vanos behind the Vanos control solenoid? I tested that one and it had no resistance/reading on the voltimeter. I am at a stand still with getting my 325i back on the road.

    was driving my 1994 325is and stopped at a light. When I took off from the light for some reason, it had started to what seems like to be a miss fire. As I drove the car home it would seem like the miss fire would come and go. If anyone has any idea as to what it could be, I would greatly appreciate any response.
