BMW 528i QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Sometimes when I am driving, usually city-lower speed and when it is raining, the trunk of my car opens on its own. I stop and close it. It will then usually happen again a few times. Then it won't do it for a while so I forget it. Then it happens again, but never when I am at the dealer. The dealership here is terrible and no one has been able to tell me why this happens.
Thought it was a transmission issue. But after being towed to mechanic he rang me the next day to say it was driving fine -and computer showed no transmission issues. When i thought about it although the engine continued to run fine there was no revving sound when you accelerated. No power but no sound. Almost like the accelerator was dead. Could this be an electrical issue?very scary when on a freeway and suddenly the accelerator us dead and you have no power. It was an extremely hot day but temp gauge perfect and no transmission warning lights showed. Have looked after this car like a baby and recently fitted replacement engine.HELP.

I confirmed a head gasket leak by sucking coolant out of cylinder #3 with a turkey baster.
Facts. Only cylinder 3 is affected. P0303 misfire on cold start. Exhaust steam for a few minutes until warm. It's accumulating about 1/16th of an ounce of coolant every 24 hours. The coolant loss does not move the indicator in the expansion tank. Block Tester indicates zero carbons in the cooling system. Dipstick indicates no coolant in the oil. Car is driven only 2,000 miles per year. I just finished a 500 mile Interstate road trip with no problems, and the coolant temp was steady at 99 degrees C (210 F).
the blower does not work
it closes but does not lock any ideas ? also actuator does move when I use handle but lock mech. will not lock and dash light for trunk deck is always on no matter what I do too latch

Bmw series 530 diesel
it goes across from fender to fender and the hood hooks up to it
As I close the trunk, I can here the latch engage and feel a click prior to closing, as if something is triggering it to release. It will stay closed for about 4 seconds then release as if I had pressed the release button. This happens when the car is in park, drive, reverse and even when the key is off. However, after everything is off, it will stay closed.
i press the brakes try to shift the stick and it wont leave from park
Water squirting through matt whole also

528i with manuel trans
why does my trans. downshift into a lower gear when i am driving and shows it is in another gear when i put it in park sometimes and will still be in drive when i put it in park but will finally go into park after you mess with it a minute
where do i take it to for trans. fluid check
and when slowing down it jumps hard as well, it had some frontend damage and was repaired and the warning light is a yellow triangle with and exclaimation point. Trying to find out what steps to follow first. It seems to shift up and down fine with a slow increase of speed and letting it slow on it own.
Ican hear the lock click when I push the button on my key...the latch does not lock in place. Is there a cable that connects the latch and the automatic lock.
Thanks for any advice
A lot of the tiny red lights in the stereo dash don't turn on. Do I need to replace something like a fuse?
when i bought it the seller said it needed a new water pump because it would over heat. i replaced water pump and thermostat.i test drove it and water was coming out of the cap so i shut the car off. the car did not start again until the next day. i replaced the cap,the car started and when i shut it off it did not want to start again.we replaced the radiator and i do have the master key but the car still wont start.the key turns over and all dash lights and radio comes on but the car doesnt start or make any noise...we flushed the lines so there is no air...whats the problem???
