Mein Auto: 2005 X5 4.4
Unhappy 2005 x5 4.4 need some advice

I bought a 2005 X5 4.4 automatic from a auction that needs help.

1.Main problem is the 4+4 on the dash comes on when the rear diff slips and it says DSC 4+4 NON ACTIVE ON THE DASH BELOW THE GAUGES AND FEELS REALLY UNSTABLE WHEN IT DOES THAT AND THE SPEDO DROPS TO 0 AND SLOWLY COMES BACK TO SPEED ALSO THE MPG GAUGE FLICKS AROUND.The trans seems ok and pulls hard and does not seem to slip so I am suspecting the rear diff,left axle noise or transfer case problem.Has any one had issues like this.

2.The windshield washer will not hold water I am assuming both of the rubber grommets.

3.The radiator fill seems to be leaking a decent drip from the bottom as well and think a possible grommet as well.

4.Left wheel has grease in it suspecting bad cv boot.

5.Any good places for quality used and discount new parts?
