Engine Cooling problem
1999 BMW 323 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 154789 miles
I am in some serious need of help on this code. First let me tell you about my used 1999 323i BMW or better known to my dad as purchasing someone else’s problem! In this cases he maybe right.
I had several codes and was able to clear them all except the infamous Peake Tool Code 68 – VANOS EXHAUST REFERENCE VALUE. Can you please tell me what this is and how to get rid of it for good. I gotta get this car smogged and with the wonderful check engine light lit – you know the deal… Failure.
What have I done to clear this code? Other than change out the Vanos Solenoid. Nothing else. And I did try to search this in the forums. But I really am looking for the miracle answers… Please Help…
I am pretty good with hand tools but I feel like a dog chase his tail. Never gonna win…
Symptoms? Clear the code, start the car. Check engine is gone, run it for 5 minute or up to 30 + minutes – No problem… SHUT the car off and restart and WHAMMM… Instant CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. Clear the code again and start the process all over again.
Not losing power. Oil light stays on for a while (yellow) but then goes away.
I’ll be waiting for your repy… THANKS in ADVANCE.
You guys been big help in the past.
