Can you tell me if the mech.is right, Thanks in advanced.

I own a BMW X-5, 4.4 ltr V-8. I am having a issue with my brakes, they lock up after I've been driving a while. Over the past 2 months I've replaced the brake booster, abs module, vaccum hose and both rotors on the rear of the vehicle. I've taking my car to several BMW dealers who can't find out whats wrong. The problem started 2 months ago, my brake pedal was hard to push in when i was driving, then the 4x4/DSC, brake lights showed inactive status. While the lights were on, the car started to slow down without me pusihing the brakes. Eventually I damged the rear rotors, so I replaced them and took the vehicle in. The BMW tech stated that he believes it was the power brake booster or the ABS module. We'll I am currently tired of spending money and my car is still doing the same thing.

Hi guys, I have a 2005 X5, 4.4i with 114,000 miles. I have a received messages from "trans failsafe prog" to "4F 85 EGS: Ratio Monitoring, Clutch E. I have no idea what exactly is going on with this car. The dealer had told me that I needed a new transmission. I had it rebuild instead but it's still acting up. There is a slight delay before the reverse gear kicks in. If you press the car a little hard while on reverse, I would switch to neutral. Additionally, stop and go traffic has become a nuisance now because the car is making this clunk noise like someone just rear bump me or something. The car really take a long time to respond when trying to accelerate to change lane on the highway. I don't know what left to do. Has anyone ever experience something similar?

I had an oil changed 2 days before that happened Im wondering if there is a iink


i tried using a 10mm socket, but it seems to big, and the 9mm is too small. am i missing something here?

Fuses & wire connections intact, radio lights, cd/aux/BT functions all appear working, but zero sound. Note, car battery was replaced by dealer the day before. What is rec next step for repair/troubleshoot? It's become a very quiet, tiring drive!

i just bought i due to reason hydrolic system was not working . i later found some thing might be compressor is missing

was driving and overheated and shutoff days later crank up and filled with water and its going on ground looks like for about middle of transmission were can it be linking from

My X5 has smoke that comes from drivers side tail pipe only. It doesn't appear to happen all the time though. Sitting at idle it will sometimes after driving for a while. Also if sitting at idle and then revved up smoke will bellow. I'm concerned that there is a lower engine issue and need some advise from someone that knows this 4.4L V8 engine. My mechanic says that it is because of a suction valve that needed to be replaced and that now there is oil in the converters that needs to burn out. I don't buy that story because after 800 miles it is still doing the same. I am currently monitoring to see if there is oil consumption which should help to prove or disprove this theory. I would appreciate anyone who can provide a little insight.

mechanic changed out 2 coil packs. cleaned mass air flow sensor problem still occurs.

Everytime i start my car it's vibrating and its running rough. I was told that i need a spark plug and a fuel injection i did that. It's running the same way. Any idea please?

after 1 to 2 hours driving, we could hear the blower still on, but there was no wind, no cold air coming out of front outlets, but it was nomal for back seat outlet which we kept it on about one hour ,then the a/c (the front outlets)got back to normal. We had a new "the final stage blower motor resistor" in bmw dealer, the problem remains.
