Hello There.

These come on as a precousionary measures, even if there is a slight misfire in the engine it generates a code which can be read and inform you why it is there, most of the time these are minor things and light can be reset. The only time you need to get seriously worried is when the letters 'eml' light up with the engine light, then you have a serious problem.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.

SOURCE: BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard

hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

I have the same problem start with my 2004 Honda Civic Si today. I checked the coolant and it looks fine. I can see it being the thermostat, but a water pump runs of a belt, doesn't it? That either seizes and stops or it works, I would think, so I'm wondering how the water pumo coild be the problem?

You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Once the engine fires the fuel flows good and you have pressure, but when the engine is off, the pressure isn't there to force fuel to the injectors. It's a possible but it could be numerous things.

A fluid & filter change may be required, if you've already checked & confirmed fluid level is proper. With price of getting a new or rebuilt transmission, it may be wise to have it scanned for problems as well, at a reputable shop.
