I RECENTLY HAD TO CHANGE MY ECCENTRIC SHAFT SENSOR AND SEAL BECAUSE IT KEPT FILLING WITH OIL AND THE DEALER SUGGESTED THAT WAS THE PROBLEM, WEEK LATER THE SAME THING IS HAPPENING AFTER A LONG HARD DRIVE, AVERAGE BETWEEN 80 N 100 MPH FOR 1OO MILES OR MORE
While on the freeway, my 2001 X5 (165,000m) car developed a coolant leak, overheated, and was towed to the dealership. I was told there is white melted gunk in the radiator, so the radiator needs to be replaced. And I was told that we won't know if the engine damage is catastrophic until after I have spent the $$ replacing the radiator. Should I repair the radiator and hope for the best, or is it likely that my engine has catastrophic damage?
I hear hissing Coming from my left-hand side rear wheel well. Also the self-leveling suspension seems to have dropped on that same side so I was told it was the airbag suspension can you give me a ballpark figure on how much this cost

Car turned on and doesn't make any noise while in park then When shifting into any gear the car will not move and makes a grinding noise even when I put back into park. Have Ti shut car off and restart for noise to stop
My BMW (auto) Shudders and jolts around the 30mph mark and stops when I put my foot down a little more. But when I'm using the manual gear change, this doesn't occur at all.
The battery light, the ABS light the brake light the low air in tire light all come on at the same time. I took it to shop that only works on BMW and Mercedes. They could not find anything wrong with battery, alternator, brakes, nothing. The lights will stay on until I stop the car and restart, sometimes it takes several times to stop. anyone ever had this problem.

The car shifts well and after it gets warm the transmission goes into safe mode and starts off in 3rd gear.
Car just don't start after driving, but an hour or two later it will start again. I replaced starter and the problem persist.

What could be the problem please help
This car has been great with no problems until I took it to NTB to have oil changed, then 2 days later began getting rough idle and the check engine light came on and then began flashing. They forgot to put the oil dip stick back when changing the oil, and had to replace several gaskets and the oil sender unit (I think), now they want to replace the spark plugs and cables because of pin 4 misfire ( they told me that is what is causing rough idle, because evidently oil got into the spark plug and coil ). Not sure if they are just stabbing in the dark and guessing. I feel like the messed something up when they did they oil change, but don't know enough about it all to find out. Maybe I could repplace the spark plugs and coils myself, but not really sure if that is really the problem
the light goes off again when the car starts to roll under accelartion and only comes on again when it comes to a stop and the brake is engaged and goes off if put into park
No change in way vehicle drives or handles, but book says to have checked out asap!
