I just wanted to share something you guys all probably know already, but it was really helpful to me and it's sort of related to cracked heads from overheating, so even with my limited mechanical knowledge I will share. I kept overheating, blowing hoses, etc. We tried everything, thermostat, radiator cleanse, etc, etc, etc! Then I did some research and found that the E34's have a tendency to have the sealants around their fans deteriorate...the fan keeps turning so no one suspects that it's not turning FAST ENOUGH to keep the engine cool....thus the chronic overheating.
Well, once that was fixed, sealant and all...my baby runs at perfect temperature, all day every day. Now if my transmission issue was that simple....
Just a FYI, hope that helps someone,
joanne
