    Unfortunately my car did not have an owners manual and service manual and so I purchased an owners manual but no help. A Haynes book 99-2006 3 series ordered has no relevant info about the engine.Can any one please help with the oil sensor becoming faulty and a yellow oil light illuminates when starts up for 20 sec and I will beg for a PDF or word document about the operations of the TV,CD and RADIO screen, codes etc. Will not forget the people who could help as I will help in any way in rectifying others who have the same car in service and repairs and minor faults. p.s My car has the right level of oil as the previous owner filled it too much.Would you believe a liter. No wonder I have small oil leaks in 3 spots on the engine.

    Hello eveyone,
    When I first purchased the 318i 04 a beeper will sound when the vehicle is in motion, whilst the handbrake is on. For one when a handbrrake is on the car shouldno run in drive. Brakes are at 90%. For a e46 318i 04 how often should the car be serviced ?. The service indicator read 18,000 km yet the car at times is ideling slightly rough, but is running like a dream after time. Can grade of fuel make a difference? I'm going to run the tank dry and then put a better grade of fuel. Is that a good idea? oil? I have a lot to learn yet will not touch at this stage and leave the car to a reputable mechanic. Unfortunatly the car has almost hit the 200,000km mark and for a 4 cyl and year 04, not too good yet the exterior has had been resprayed and apart from a very used leather the car looks not old. Can anyone please help with with some of the questions I typed in this thread. Thankyou Kindly !
