Yellow oil light on 2007 BMW x3

Asked by Aug 14, 2017 at 10:52 AM about the 2007 BMW X3 3.0si

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I bought this used 2007 BMW X3 about 2weeks
ago and it's been nothing but problems. Since
about 2 mins of driving at after I bought it it's been
throwing code p0012 (camshaft sensor). I swapped
out the sensor for a new one then my car just
wouldn't start. I had it towed to a garage and the
put the old sensor back in bc the new one melted. I
brought it back home and still had the same code
for the check engine light. It's starting to shift harder
into gears and makes a nick when down shifting
into first gear. When I'm taking off from a stop it
seems like it just don't wanna pick up speed and
then out of no where it seems like I'm flooring it!
Now today I was driving and my yellow oil light
came on (in addition to the never ending check
engine light). And I noticed it driving strangely. And
shocker, my car don't have a dipstick to even check
my oil. What do I do? Is it safe to drive at all?
