BMW Troubleshooting Basics: Problem Number 1—Engine Not Starting

If your engine refuses to start or roll over, it could be a simple problem with a simple solution. You might be dealing with a loose battery connection, or a connection that has 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. This is a car repair you may be able to do yourself.

If it is not the battery connections, your starter might also have gone kaput. This car repair won’t break the bank, but will likely require a professional mechanic or at least someone handy with cars. And since it’s a BMW, you should probably have it serviced by a certified BMW technician that specializes in BMW repair.

Problem Number 2—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 battery connections. Another potential inexpensive solution is simply changing your dirty or clogged air filter, which is easy to replace. You might need to replace your spark plugs, especially if you’ve experienced sluggishness in the engine and your newer car is nearing 100,000 miles.

Problem Number 3—Is Your Car Overheating? Here’s What to Do

If your car is overheating, you need to stop driving your car immediately. Driving with an overheated car is one of the easiest ways to do serious damage to your engine. Call a tow truck to come pick you up or troubleshoot the problem from the side of the road. Don’t think that since you are almost at home that it’s okay to keep going. This is a critical car repair. Bring it into our auto repair shop for service immediately.

First, understand how the system works. Coolant flows from your engine through the engine head, propelled by the water pump. Start by checking the coolant level and radiator cap. You’ll need to wait for the radiator to completely cool before unscrewing it. Inspect the cap for corrosion, rust, or any visible sign of damage. You might have air bubbles in the system—a phenomenon mechanics refer to as burping. This can impede circulation. Use a funnel and add coolant to the system. This should force out out any clogged air bubbles and improve circulation—which will help to keep everything cool.

If you still can’t figure out how to keep your car from overheating by yourself, give us a call. We’ll be happy to fix your BMW. Bring it into our auto repair shop, and we’ll give you a diagnosis for BMW repair, let you know how much it will cost, how much time the repair will take, and get you back on the road ASAP.

How to Inspect Your Own BMW Brakes

We often don’t think about the brakes on our BMWs until they have issues, but by then it’s already an expensive problem. Regular inspections and repair not only keep you safe, but keep costs to a minimum. Outside of taking it to a professional mechanic (which you should do on an annual basis), the two ways to look for brake problems are looking and listening. Look through the spokes of your wheel to check for wear on your brakes. You should be able to see the pad pressed against the rotor. You want at least ¼ inch of pad. Anything less means you need to replace the pads. You can also listen for a high pitched squeal, a sign that your pads have worn through to the metal shin. This also means they’ll need replaced, the sooner the better.
