Re: 87 325e dies on acceleration when warm

I would describe it more like an abrupt total cut than a slow death.

Re: Passenger's side power window shat itself

Ever get your window working? In the 3+ years I've been driving my blue e30 I've never been able to use either passenger window.

Re: 87 325e dies on acceleration when warm

Yes, I'm still alive everyone. Just haven't been online much since we moved our shop to a new location, and 99% of my tows are out of state, so I don't spend much time in my office, and am too exhausted to get online from home. We also swapped the AFM with the known working one from my car with no c...

Re: I want to kick this cold weather in the fayse! (engine problems)

I can't drive an unmodified car. I even modify my RENTAL cars! Nothing major, of course, but always something. I usually unmod it before returning, but not always. Your car is an extension of who you are. Making mods illegal is like saying it's illegal to have a different opinion. I'm sure somebody ...

Re: I want to kick this cold weather in the fayse! (engine problems)

Like only Toyota, or only Mercedes, or only Subaru, etc. Most new cars are being designed to need specialized (physical and computer based) tools and training to do even the most basic work. When I got my Hunter alignment certification they told us we wouldn't be able to do alignments on any new Mer...

Re: I want to kick this cold weather in the fayse! (engine problems)

Towing got really busy, especially after Sandy when we were one of the few tow companies in the area that didn't close. We ran for a week without power when all the other companies just stayed at home. Service kept getting slower and slower, so when the last mechanic quit it didn't make sense to hir...

Re: I want to kick this cold weather in the fayse! (engine problems)

Well we went from a 6 bay mechanic shop that did towing on the side to being just a towing company. The boss is thinking about getting a single lift installed somewhere in the building, but it's not priority.

Re: I want to kick this cold weather in the fayse! (engine problems)

It just smells like the coolant that soaked into the carpet from the leaky heater core. The coolant was all brand new. It looks like there's a drain at the bottom of the box the heater core sits in that runs through a hose that's going through the metal. I'm assuming that's why it looked like coolan...

Because of the wet floor? I need to find a good way to clean that up.

Oh no, it wasn't a gallon a day... It was a gallon on my way to work, and another gallon on my way home! And it's only like 11 miles each way.

Re: I want to kick this cold weather in the fayse! (engine problems)

I'm glad I finally have heat again! I can actually turn on the fan without the entire car fogging up in 30 seconds. Yeah, back by the gas pedal where the clip holds it in place. The first time I went to try looking at the heater core I pulled out the clip thing and pulled the console out as far as I...
