    Hi there! I was reading your post on replacing the fuel pump on your 3 series.. I recently upgraded to an E90 330i, however I'm trying to sell my 318i. It has 235 000km on the clock and for the last 5-10k has been having issues.. It drops RPM (about 1500) rapidly while cruising (or idling), but only for a fraction of a second.. And the engine oil and battery lights come on briefly before going out; more recently though this has been happening and the engine fully turns off and will not start again immediately. You can sit there and try to restart it (sometimes it will go after a few seconds, other times a few minutes). Does this sound like it may be something to do with the fuel pump also? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Out of the OBDII tools you can use with a smartphone, which one would you recommend? I have an iPhone 5C. Thread doesn't seem to provide a clear winner.

    jfoj..... read you post on a low fluid issue related to breaks - causing clutch not to engage?

    The break fluid reservoir is divided with a vertical separator wall that makes the reservoir into a dual reservoir. There are 2 hoses connected to the bottom of the reservoir, brake & clutch. If the fluid level in the reservoir drops too much, the clutch side will not share any more fluid. This is a safety mechanism to keep as much fluid for the brake system because stopping is a bit more important than moving under most circumstances.

    So the OP needs to see if his problem is due to a loss of fluid into the clutch side due to break pad wear and brake fluid level dropping.

    I have had a pad warning light for weeks - & today the clutch failed - not engaging in ANY gears..... does the low fluid not enable the clutch to engage? I am getting conflicting info from other subs....

    Hey. Your inbox seems to be full so I'm posting this here, I hope that is okay.

    I am having a cylinder 6 misfire, I saw your guide out there but I'm a little lost about what step to take next to diagnose what is causing the misfire. I think my next step has to be a smoke test. Any chance you have a machine I can borrow/come by and use to do a smoke test? I am located in college park.. I could drive out to you, my parents live in Vienna actually. I would really appreciate it!

    I am planning on doing my VANOS seal this weekend, and I was thinking that it would be a good time to change my spark plugs since that is a possible cause for this cylinder 6 misfiring but I am unsure if that will solve the problem.

    I am also getting a p0441 (EVAP Purge System) code.. I think my first step would be to replace the purge valve? Does that sound right?

    Any tips would be appreciated!
