I need some help, please. My '83 533i (166k) runs really well. Just
had it tuned, replaced brake pads and rotors as they were in tough
shape. Had all fluids checked and changed.
Three issues that I can't seem to resolve:
(1) Brake light comes on even though the brakes were checked and brand
new. Fluid level is fine and as stated, brakes and rotors are new.
(2) Oil light comes on and "pyramid" light on dash is steady. I think
the oil light triggers this triangular warning light - so probably same
issue. There are five quarts of new oil in car. Mechanic suggested it
could be bad switch located under oil pan.?
(3) Most troubling ... the clutch pedal "sticks" to the floor on
occasion. If I lift it back up, it is fine until the next time it
sticks to floor. I asked mechanic to "bleed" the clutch, but he told
me that the bleed valve was pretty well gunked up with rust and would
need to be tapped. His instructions were that there was plenty of
hydraulic pressure in the line such that the pedal should not be
sticking. It still is, however, even after complete check and change
Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated.
