transmission failsafe warning

Please help... this warning came on and the car is very sluggish. Does this mean my tranny has let go? My transmission was serviced 6 months ago. Any advice would be welcomed and appreciated.

I had the blower motor replaced. And the car sat idle for 2 months. Thus my thoughts about the converter. I just want to get it back on the road again.

Car will not accelerate

After having some work done to my e38 it will not pick up speed and accelerate. I'm wondering if it was old gas that made the catalytic converter go bad. I would appreciate any and all advice.

Was told it was the blower motor and was given a quote of 1,400.00. 700 for labor and 600 for parts. Does this sound about right?

95 740i - AC went out today

My AC went out today in this South Carolina heat. It worked for a while, then just went out. My question could it just be a fuse or is there a bigger problem that i'll have to face?

Cheers!
