Trifecta plus 1st post Help!
Early last month I hit a deep pothole at 70 mph. I pulled off the hiway at first opportunity and did an inspection of the right front wheel and undercariage as best I could by thelight of my cell phone. Looked fine. Nect morning did much more detailled inspection, pulled wheel etc. Saw totally torn boot on the cv joint. Ordered cv.
I've been in really bad health of late (Ineed heart surgery to repair my mitral valve), and didn't get to it. Last week as I was cruising at maybe 40, the car puled to the right,struggled against the braking and when I hit the clutch, it rev'ed to 6000 instantly. I puled over, shut it down in a parking lot and again saw nothing obvious. I started it up and tried to head out, got somw brake binding, then got the trifecta.
Here's the rub. The car has gone in and out of the trifects (magic, I'm a bmw and I healed myself) BUT, when it has the tripple light condition, ONLT THE TACH OPERATES. No speedo, no odo, no stupid little feul consumption needle. Is there an additional item I need to fix or troubleshoot? BMW330 xi 02 with 160k. Brakes,pads and rotors on all four done 6 months ago.
Any help greatly appreciatedd
