fell like misfire. after eng. hot runs fine normal.
Leaking trans fluid on both sides around cv boots.
It's my first BMW and I love it! Bought used a year ago. Car is in good shape with 40,000 miles. I'll put 20-25K on it every year. Can anyone give me an estimate of average repair costs for the next 2-3 years?
The service manual did not come with my car, so I have nothing to go by. All indications that I have read online indicate that since it is a newer car, it should be 100,000. There are no warning lights coming on and the heat works great. Should I try a test strip in the coolant to see what it says? Thanks in advance, Scott

I have a 91 cadillac sedan deville with just 60,000 miles on it....recently had the battery changed, engine tune up and oil change done by a backyard mechanic...Car started misfiring, stalling and losing power...even my gas mileage fell drastically from 13 MPG to 4.5MPG....Utterly devastated I took it to the dealership to have the problems checked. First the technician stated that he had to do a compression test to find the problem which would cost me $350...after the compression test he stated that 4 cylinders were not firing and I needed replacement. Utterly devasted I asked him if he checked my spark plugs or for that matter the fuel injectors? At this he stated he will get back to me. The next day he called me and stated that there were 2 different set of spark plugs were used and some had oil foul etc etc...On further insisting him to diagonize the problem instead of offhandedly asking me to replace th engine...he stated that he would change the spark plugs and see if the cylinders fire....Today he called me and stated that the engine runs better than before but the spark plugs need to be changed, some cables connected to the spark plugs need replacement and some of the fuel injectors have leaks which need replacement. Then finally he stated that the catalytic convertor needs to be replaced as well since something fuzed and damaged the catalytic convertor. My predicament is the technician did not come up with any solution after the compression test and wants to charge me $350....and with all that he stated that the total will come to $1700.....Now should I proceed with the repairs since he was not honest in the first place. If not will be okay for me to find a wayside garage to get the job done? Someone please help me
