Subject: Heater Problem

I am having a mysterious problem with my heater. The problem is that there is 
no heat. I am speculating that it could be the hot water valve that allows 
the hot water to flow into the heater core, but I do not know how to test 
this theory. I don't think that it could be the heater core b/c I would think 
that would be evidenced by a leak or something. The only other idea I have is 
that the vacuum actuator that opens the heater flap isn't working, but I 
would think that would be the least likely scenario. Does anyone have any 
ideas?

Thanks,
John Weaver

Subject: "other car" advice..


Hello All,

  I ask (ok, beg!) the moderators to please let this through, as I am
travelling quite a distance from home, and need some real basic car advice.

   My "other" car is a 1995 BMW 325i 5 speed with about 75k miles.  Upon
arriving at my destination today, I noticed the clutch a little jittery upon
initial accelleration in first gear.  I've had slipping clutches in other
cars, but this isn't it.  It shifts and holds other gears just fine.   When
I was parking, I noticed a low "rumbling" sound only when I had the clutch
depressed.  As soon as I released the clutch (in neutral), the rumbling
disapeared.  I've had the same "rumbling" in a previous car, but it was an
bad tranny when the clutch was engaged.  I simply can't figure out what
could the problem be only when the clutch is depressed.  If you have any
suggestions, please email me privately at heskin(at)bellatlantic.net.  Thank
you all in advance!

-Hank #1619

Agreed...My car broke down last week (first time) and I called AAA for a tow
from my place to the shop.  I requested a flatbed truck and told them the
car could not be towed...they happy provided me with a flatbed!

The safest way is to flatbed it. The operator MUST NOT try to pull it
on by the lower control arms! If towed backwards either on the ground
or flatbed the rear louver should be removed as it will catch the air
and fly off taking out the "T" panel and maybe the rear window. If an
automatic it cannot be towed with the rear wheels on the ground AT
ALL. If towed on the ground it cannot be picked up too high because if
taken over a bump the end will hit because of the low clearance so be
careful going in and out of driveways or you will be fixing the front
air dam. It is best to do as much preventitive maintance as you can to
avoid towing. If going any distance a trailer or flatbed is the only
way to go.
