thanks for the reply!
i cann't find starter on fastlane nor can i find ovp relay. is it the same as overload relay?
i am changing the things you listed above next weekend if i can order everything on time for it to be delivered next weekend. i owned this car since 32miles and enjoyed every minute of it. the car has been running great(million times better than my wife's 94 318i, my brother's 95 318ic and my sister's 97 audi a4)
does any body know where is a good place to buy oil/transmission fluid/break fluid...etc? or am i better off buying them locally?
from this forum i got the feeling that synthetic is the way to go. does it matter what kind? which weight(?) do you suggest (i live in atlanta (summer temp go up to 100f))
