Was wanting to find out what might be causing the stereo to have no sound also the doors or seat belt warning don't ding
I hear a metallic dinging noise coming from beneath the car when pulling away from a stop. Noise is not lot but seems to be coming from underneath car by manual shift. Could it be clutch or dive shaft?
These issues are constant anytime I attempt to use voice commands to access these systems. Service info system is grayed out and inaccessible. Guidance system does not announce street names.
I noticed antifreeze on the driveway coming from the bottom of the car a couple of days ago. I kept replacing it until I could take it to someone but now there's NO anitfreeze on the ground, still losing it and it running hot (no gauge just to touch).

I won't say that I hate this car but something is always wrong, at the moment I have no music in the car for about 4 months now...When it's cold out, it would work as normal but when I switch off the car after reaching my destination, music shut down for good, just get the bmw logo and then it dims out and back on continuously till next morn (if it's cold out) I was told it's the radio, then another say battery, then another say it's another small box in the back under the spare tire, I just don't know what to think right now and I'm getting frustrated.
It has a light on that shows the steering fluid has a problem.
My car is automatic and manual and sometimes the car change form automatic transmission to manual transmission and start shifting from 2 to 1 or from 1 to 2 shift and sometimes the shift from Neutral to Reverse take long to shift.
I ordered the kit and it has everything but the bolts need to be torque to factory specs and I don't know what that are to complete the job.
Valve cover gasket replacement - Job
i have a 545I 2004 hardly driving it..always serviced when needed..about 100k miles...today recd msg saying transmission fault..reduced power...i did not drive any further..any idea what the problem is?
i hardly drive the car..always serviced when needed
The sound isn't the valve nor the lifters. I was told it was a part in the valve train that wears out and I could drive the car without having to worry about it. I have noticed that once the car is under a load the sound goes away. Its a 6speed manual. I can clearly hear the knocking/ticking sound with the transmission in neutral but once I put it in gear and slowly let out the clutch the sounds disappears.
How much should labor be to replace the transmission
