okey doaky ...
car is going in for the suspension work up now.
just wondering how to best go about it ... and if changing shocks is a
good idea. there is a slashed boot in the rear, and the steering
control arms have bushings and power steering stuff to swap out.
do it all in one day ... can not do it in one day no matter what.
do the rears first ... come back for the front and vehicle alignment.
and what about the wheel bearings ...
BMW so good even with that they will last 450K miles.
The engine is still strong, factory specs.
Having a luminescent dye being added to the engine oil to check for oil
leaks all around.
Once the engine is sealed at the factory ... to my thinking it stays dry
until one cracks the case ... takes off the oil pan ... moves the oil
filter housing ... and the oil pressure is a bit weaker now with 185K on
it but still up to specs
Bureau of Automotive Repair has an investigation going on regarding the
last BMW certified mechanic shop the car was receiving poor service and
theft of customer monies are involved.
See what happens with that ... but so far the car seems okey just needs
some R and R to get it up for another 100K miles.
Your sight and insight is appreciated and welcomed.
