View Full Version : Anybody Between Omaha and Chicago?

Is there anyone here between Omaha and Chicago? My father is driving my new '95 740il back from Dallas and the check engine light is coming on here and there. He thinks it's misfiring and that caused the Check light to come on. Maybe some loose connections somewhere. Too many plastic covers to see if anything is wrong. I told him to stick to High Test gas (still has the Nikasil Block) and run through some injector cleaner. Anybody know of a shop he could stop at to have them take a look and not have to wait for hours? Any help would be awesome.

If you don't hear anything from this board you could check each of the BMW CCA's along the way and email the local chapters, who probably have recommendations.

Did you get your help? I'm north of Chicago, but certainly no expert. I do have a fault code reader.

Thanks. We are all set. made it home. Big oil leak, I think its from the Passenger valve cover gasket. I'll change that next week and find out what if that was it.
