    I've fixed my cooling issue. I was on my way home from work today and all of a sudden my traction control light started to blink doing 80. Didn't actually lose traction and it killed my cruise control. I'm wanting to say it is something to do with the transmission or am I mistaken.

    I just purchased a 2003 325ci over all the car is in good shape.

    I know i need new synchronizers for gears 2 ad 4 and i wanted to know how much it would cost to replace.

    Looked through the forums for a few hours now and found no definitive solutions or even causes of the problem. Some forums even said to "SELL THE CAR ASAP" which isn't very comforting... :( ----------------- Here's my story... A few days ago I was driving to school and my car shot me a...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    So after years of smooth sailing in my 2002 E53 (X5) I believe I now have a transmission problem. The transmission makes what I can only describe as a loud slam/clunking sound when I accelerate after a sudden decrease in speed. Any ideas on what this might be? :dunno:

    Hi guys, my 535i stopped shifting into 1st 3rd and 5th yesterday without any real warning ahead of time.
