    I just noticed that ZF switched from Filtran to Hengst for the GA8HP45Z GA8HP70Z Oil Pan and Filter Kit. The difference is Hengst uses a white filter now. If you have black you have the older version. I still have not installed mine so I am returning it, and ordering the new version. Just wanted...

    Hello, I have been having a weird transmission problem since I've bought the car (1.5 year ago).

    I have a 2004 X5 4.4i. My brake light and ABS light are always on, but whenever the brake light turns red (seemingly random while driving), the TRANSMISSION FAILSAFE PROG. message displays. When this happens the radio cuts in and out, as well as the speedometer turning off and on. The dealer...

    I have had this car for about a month. A very clean vehicle. I have maintenance records from the previous (2nd) owner.

It seems random because I cant hear it all the time, sometimes its quiet, mostly when the car is cold. but once...

    Hey all! My first time posting here, but my name is Tyrone and I have a 2005 bmw 325i with 129k miles that I bought about 1/2 months ago. The only issue when I bought it was that the fuel ran too lean, which I got diagnosed and figured out it was because I had a big hole in the air intake hose...

    Need to replace a worn out transmission mount and the lower engine torque mount on my 2014 i3 Rex. Any recommendations for a good i3 mechanic that can do this in ORange County Ca?
