My Ride: 01 325xi wagon 5spee
Hello from alaska!
I recently sold my camry wagon and bought a very well kept 01 325xi wagon with a 5 speed, this car is world apart from my camry. I have a short list of preventative maintenances to do as i take it out of town and have started on some of them. this forum has a weather of knowledge!
change oil - done
replace valve cover gasket (stunk!) - done
replace coolant tank (it's moist around seam) - ordered
replace air filter - ordered
replace spark plugs - ordered
replace water pump - ordered
replace oil filter gasket - ordered
replace main belt - ordered
flush coolant - waiting for parts
replace vanos oil line (minor leak) - ordered
the vanos is pretty quiet and no weird noises unless it's below zero degrees and then there's a little rattle for about a minute on cold start up. i'm putting that at the end of the list till next summer when weather is warmer. anything else i should consider? i travel out of town frequently.
