i have water in my oil what caused this and how do i stop that
i need over ride conpressor to put freon in
I had replaced the A/C actuator about 1 yr ago. Three days ago I loss power and my car shut off completely due to a bad alternator switch which killed the alternator and my battery. I had the alternator switch and alternator replaced and purchased a new battery. Now the vents are not opening when I turn on the a/c. One website said that it may need to be re calibrated. How is this done? By the way there is not a clicking noise like the last time the actuator went out. So I am assuming that it is fine.
i just had cabin air filter changed and replace wiper blades my self

drive as if it might have a miss and check engine light has come on but not running hot just leaking radiator fluid not much
From the moment you turn it on my car is roaring.I know that manual transmissions tend to be a bit louder then automatic ones, but mine you can hear a mile away. It sounds like the car is stuck in a constant sate of over acceleration. it also sounds like clanky tin when ever you shift gears(yes the clutch is all the way in). Im not sure if this might be a engine problem or one with my transmission.Not one of my warning light has turned on, so im a a complete loss.
Can drive the car but engine light still stays on.

I used all BMW recomended fluids and filter,gaskets etc. It was a nomal fluid change everything went fine and once I was finished went to take a test drive to see if the transmission fault indicator would come back on because it had been from time to time,and it will not move at all no forward no reverse not anything.Is there a reset or something to perform that I don't knoe about.This is my first BMW,please help.I know it has to be something simple.Other then the fault light coming on here and there it had a gasket leaking but worked fine,so all should be fixed,why won't it move now?
The ABS light came on, and suddenly there is no power to accelerate, unless you are in 2nd gear? I have been told this could be the torque converter, or the actual transmission. What could this be,and what are repair costs?
