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 baby runs at perfect temperature, all day every day. Now if my transmission issue was that simple....
Just a FYI, hope that helps someone,
Are you talking about the fan clutch/ clutch fan / engine fan ?
