Troubleshooting Techniques to Fix Your BMW
Whenever you need to call someone to “Fix my BMW,” you’re basically playing mechanic roulette. Step up and spin. It might cost you a thousand dollars. It might be $50, or cost nothing at all. It depends. In fact, you might not even need to take it to a mechanic. You might be able to save yourself an easy hundred dollars troubleshooting the issue yourself.
Engine Not Starting?
If your engine refuses to start or roll over, you might be dealing with a loose battery connection, or the connections have become corroded and faulty. Check the connections, giving them a wiggle to make sure they are secure. If there’s rust, remove the rust with an iron brush.
Your starter might also have gone kaput. This repair won’t break the bank, but will likely require a professional mechanic or at least someone handy with cars.
Does Your Engine Have Trouble Starting in the Cold?
If you have trouble starting the car in cold weather, you again might be dealing with bad or rusty connections. You might also have a dirty or clogged air filter, which is easy to replace. You might also need to replace your spark plugs, especially if you’ve experienced sluggishness in the engine.
If you still can’t figure out the problem yourself, give us a call. We’ll be happy to fix your BMW!
