My 2001 540i had trans. problems. The trans fail/safe warning would come on, i drove it like that for a lil while. when i turned it off then on it would run normally for a few miles then pop back the failsafe and i would immediately lose performance but would still move. then eventually it got to the point were my trans. wouldnt perform it would sit when in gear engine idling and barely crawling forward. replaced the trans, Now the car wont start! the car cranks but wont start. Help me out here, anyone.

I was told a O2 sensor was the cause for the check engine and cruise light being on, I live abroad and the sensor is not available. Could a failed sensor cause engine damage and how do I turn the warning lights off?

i have no ground in the ignition coils

It happens at high rpms and it sounds like a problem with the intake system. Maybe an air leak or a turbo issue. It is not a belt.
