So I picked up my 87 528e/5 on Saturday, 192k miles, it's a blast and a half! So far, these are the things is like to fix in the near future, looking for some diagnostic/DIY help; this is my first E28, please bear with me.
1) ABS light: this comes on intermittently; more often than not though. The brake pedal becomes stiff too but braking still feels OK.
-could this just be worn sensors?
2) Weak clutch pedal and banging diff: the clutch does not always return to fully out, sometimes it will stay on the floor or just off the floor. I can pick it up with my foot and it will stay there. The clutch grabs at the top so I'm avoiding this by not putting it to the floor on shifts.
-could this be a simple fluid change or top-off?
The diff makes a banging noise/feel when I let the clutch out too quickly. It's only happened twice so I don't have much more information but maybe this too is a simple fluid change?
The car came with a lot of documentation of previous service so I have to go through all of that to see when the last all of these things were serviced, will let you know when I do. For now though, just looking to brainstorm and troubleshoot it...
