Also codes C- 27D5 Failure within the Idle-Speed Control, 272C, 272D LR - Adaption Additive per-time and per- time (Bank 2)

My car must be started several times raising the engine before it gets properly powered, else the "engine malfunction" signs comes on and it won't pull.

how would I know if my transmission fluid is full

I just recently put a control arm in and now it is something, else. We are tight for money and I want to know, if I do not get the 'valve covered' gasket fixed if it will cause major damage in the long run, I cannot afford to get it fixed right away, will be by the end of the month and was wondering if that would cause issues. Here is the issue, I am continually having alternator issues, although that is not the case at this time the repair guy says, that due to the leaks it may be getting on my alternator belts and causing me to continally have alternator problems. I had a new alternator in 2008, a rebuilt in 2011 and so far so good on the used, everyone is saying the battery..but he attributes my issues possibly to the oil you think there is a connection??? Please let me know..thanks

lower alternator bracket leak on the bmw 745i recall

My driver side window won't go back up, I put it down and whe I tried to put it up, it goes up half way then down again. No error message on idrive. This is a 2002 745i.

hot weather

I have a intermittant dynamic drive inactive fault. The fault only occurs after the air temperature gets above 73 degrees. I have no fault in the AM when the car has sat overnight, but if the temp is above 73F, after I drive it for a while and the engine heats up or the car sits in a hot parking lot for a while, the fault occurs and stays on after the car is started. And it will remain on for the remainder of the day, no matter the temperature. The next morning it will be gone and may or may not return. I have had it to a dealer and a non-dealer repair center. The dealer insists that the Dynamic drive controller needs replaced $700US, and the Non-dealer shop insists that the front stabilizer bar needs replaced $1800US. What could cause the intermittant fault signal and how do I repair it?
