    after looking it up The code means “Solenoid Valve Running Losses Control Circuit Electrical”. So far what i have done to try and fix this code is check any vacuum leaks going to the valve, checked and made sure the cable is giving power to the valve, changed the DME relay that the valve is...

Car idles at 500 and doesn’t like to rev but as soon as it revs past 1100 or so RPM it completely smooths out...

    I have found a 2002 manual BMW M3 for sale close to me for $7000 Canadian with 220000km. The car is in mint condition aside from one issue. The car stalls when put into neutral at highway speeds. The owner has not provided any other details other than a full walk around of the car idling for 5...

    Okey, so I got this problem. I was traveling home, and everything seemed normal. After 30min of driving, the engine started to "lag". But this was only uphill, or when I tried to accelerate.:ben: When I stop and put the clutch in, it runs normal! everything seems normal, even when I rev the...

    This one has me stumped: The other day I started the car in the morning and it went immediately into Limp Mode. I took it home and checked some of the more obvious things that happened previously, like a loose harness clip on the MAF. All seems ok. Only "new" thing was a headlight that was out...

    Hi guys I only had this car for a little over a month and it was throwing the bad 02 sensor code. How do I check for which 02 sensor to replace? I tried searching everywhere for the topic but just could not find any thread regarding this issue, if anyone can link me or help me that would be...

    My 2004 E46 with 68k miles drives, idles, accelerates normally, even the economy is normal BUT I got a CEL which has started to show on the dash after I did 2hrs of driving in 32C/90F and 70% humidity weather. I have had a garage to use diagnostic tool to reset any codes, but the CEL came back...

    Hey guys, so I'm a newbie here and pretty new to working on cars in general. Yesterday I replaced my VCG and spark plugs on my 2002 330ci after reading up and watching diy's. When I fired up the car for the first time after the install the engine idles very roughly and the rpm bounces, and a few...

    I have a 1999 323i that I bought used, and it has around 129k right now. A couple months ago I'm driving around and my EML ABS & CEL lights all come on and I lose power and can't go over about 45. Eventually I learn that I can pull over and reset the lights through a couple of turning off and on...

    My 330ci just threw up a check engine light so I went to check with my code reader (this is a craftsman code reader btw not a BMW specific one) and the code the reader pulled up was P0492 for secondary air flow. I thought okay great it's probably a valve or vacuum line. Awesome. I LOVE working...

    So I've read numerous threads and utilized the tips but i STILL have my check engine light since AUGUST on 2012! I FINALLY think i may have the solution, hopfully. Here's the facts: 2001 BMW 325ci (m54) I had the infamous check engine codes: p0313 Misfire Detection with Low Fuel level p0174...

    Ok so I have been having this problem since I bought the car. It's intermittent, i randomly get the P0174 and I believe 0171 lean mixture both banks along with missfire on low fuel. It's only when the car is driven for a few miles at low rpm. However if I drive the car spirited the cel goes...

    Hey guys, Had a smog check recently and it failed when the check engine light wouldn't come on when they told it to. However, the light comes on when the key is turned (and then turns off like normal.) Which isn't normal since it is actually throwing a code. I've searched around a bit and can't...
