Possibly,but as long as the ratios are the same you will not suffer any loss of power or increased fuel consumption(do you know how much a NEW gearbox is???)so they did you a favour....

My BMW 118i year 2005 just died while driving.it won't start at all. Two weeks ago it was showing che engine light, took it to the mechanic. It came back and one day after, the light appeared again.


Sorry to hear about your problems. BMWs are complex and you need to take them to a BMW specialist that is competent to diagnose problems with the car and has the correct diagnostic equipment.
Clearly the mechanic who worked on your car fixed nothing because the CE light was still on after he messed with it and then the car stopped because the fault or faults were never properly diagnosed.

There are numerous causes for the CE light to display (it's a very long list) and the scan tool he used to pull up fault codes, which is probably what he did, would not have even necessarily pulled them all up so a proper diagnosis could be done. I expect he pulled up some fault codes, guessed what the issue was and replaced a part or 2 and handed you the bill and now you don't have a driveable car.

If you want the car fixed then get it to a high quality BMW specialist or to BMW dealer service center. They will scan for the fault codes the computer is generating and they can then begin their diagnosis and testing to determine the cause of the fault codes. Until that is done they cannot fix the car. Yes that may get expensive but that goes with these cars if you want to keep them running well.

BMWs are no more reliable than any other major brands and are typically complex and are mostly costly to repair in both parts and labor costs. So are other German made cars like Mercedes, Audi and VW. That is reflected in their used car values. If you want to own and drive one of these, diagnosing problems when they arise, repairing them and replacing the parts that will be needed will be expensive so bear that in mind when looking at used cars in future.

I believe that what you are experiencing is whats called FAILSAFE MODE, which means its stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear due to recent change in driving habits.... maybe you got on the accelerator a little too rapidly or sharp corner too fast.... All, Nissan's, Toyo's, and most cars have this mode wich is meant to prevent further damage to the trans. This may not be what your experiencing but it sounds like the symptoms, sluggish, slow acceleration,.......
have you experiencs and shifting issues, is it an auto or manual trans? if you have a trans power or over drive button and or light on dash or shifter for automatic, observe when you start it up next time and you may find it blinks 8-10-12 times.... if so you have damaged the trans due to mismatched/mixed tire sizes and or tread depth, and brans or tread styles.... yes it doesn't just ruin 4x4 auto trans,.... it kills any transmission after unknowingly driving around with incorrect tires. I work for Nissan and have for 26 years and i have seen chain tire dealers like Walmart, Sears Roebuck, Midas, Tire Wharehouse, Pepboys, and dozens of others cause the transmission planetary-gear failure; in mostly automatic 4x4 or AWD vehicles when replacing just one two or three tires AND NOT THE COMPLETE SET AS REQUIRED BY EVERY AWD AND 4X4 AUTO MANUFACTURER. DON'T BE A VICTIM... BE A WISE CONSUMER.... AND GET AN ATTORNEY IF YOU BECAME ONE ALREADY....
THANKS AND GOODLUCK

Transmission is leaking from my 2008 ford escape. The VIN number does show that it was manufactured in Kansas, but because i am in Canada the recall did not include canadian owners.


What do you need? I would cantact Ford of Canada in back of owner manual with letter, not phone, if issue is the same. TEXT:

In some of the affected vehicles, the transmission fluid cooler may develop a crack in the tube below the right hand (RH) mounting bracket from thermal and vibration fatigue. This may lead to a small transmission fluid leak and possible rough / harsh shifts. Dealers are to inspect the transmission fluid cooler for a grommet and possible fluid leak below the RH mounting bracket. Based on the results of the inspection, dealers will perform one of the following service

actions:

INSPECTION

1. Using a suitable light, look through the radiator grille and inspect the transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket for a grommet behind the mounting bolt. See Figure 1 and Figure 2.


Inspection Result Service Action

Grommet present - No further action required


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler not leaking - Install transmission fluid cooler mounting bracket


Grommet not present and transmission fluid cooler leaking - Install new transmission fluid cooler.

    BMW 328i Starter how to replaice


    1999 BMW 328I 2.8L EFI DOHC 6cyl

    Starter - Removal & Installation

    The starter motor on some models is very difficult to see from the top of engine compartment as it is covered by the intake manifold. On these models, without removing the intake manifold, the starter motor must be removed from underneath the vehicle. Because the starter motor mounting bolts are not easy to access, a long extension with a universal joint mounted on a proper sized socket could be used. A three foot transmission extension is commercially available from tool vendors that has a 3 / 8 inch drive of the driven end and 1 / 2 inch drive on the drive end. If used with a non-binding impact universal joint and a proper fitting impact socket, the starter motor fasteners can be removed from underneath the vehicle.
    Once the starter motor fasteners are removed, the starter motor may have to be moved side-to-side several times to loosen the dowel pin if it has corroded in place.

    NOTE When the battery is disconnected, the radio code, on-board computer and clock settings will be lost. The radio code should be obtained before disconnecting the battery or radio. Once the battery has been reconnected, the radio will not function unless the code is keyed in.
    Starter motor electrical terminal fastener torque specifications for all models:
    M5 terminal fasteners: 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm)
    M6 terminal fasteners: 53 inch lbs. (6 Nm)
    M8 terminal fasteners: 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm)
    Starter motor mounting fasteners:
    Hex head bolts: 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm)
    Torx bolts: 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm) Starter motor electrical terminal fastener torque specifications for all models:
    M5 terminal fasteners: 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm)

    Hex head bolts: 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm)
    Torx bolts: 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm) E36 6-Cylinder Engines

    2. Set the ignition switch to the OFF position.
    3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    4. Remove the climate control air intake duct at the rear of the engine compartment as follows:
      1. Release the grille clips at the rear and lift the grille upward from the rubber seal, then remove the seal.
      2. Remove the two self tapping Phillips screws from inside the duct to release the electrical harness housing.
      3. Press the electrical housing downward to expose and remove the two hex head self tapping screws on each side of the duct and lift the duct up and out of the engine compartment.
    5. Remove the intake manifold trim and valve cover trim covers.
    6. Disconnect the ignition coil electrical connectors and ground straps, label for reinstallation and place aside.
    7. Remove the two fasteners that secure the fuel injection electrical connector harness to the rail. Remove the harness and carefully place aside toward the back of the engine compartment behind the right side strut tower.
    8. Remove the intake manifold.
    9. Remove the electrical leads from the starter motor and place aside.
    10. Remove the starter motor mounting fasteners at the transmission bell housing, then remove the two mounting nuts at the L-shaped mounting bracket.
    11. Loosen the L-shaped bracket to engine block mounting bolt slightly, then remove the bolt while supporting the starter motor.
    12. Remove the bracket, then lift the starter motor upward away from the engine.
    13. Visually inspect the starter pinion and ring gears for any signs of damage.
    14. Installation is in reverse order of removal.

    6. Remove the fuel line cover located near the left side rear lower control arm bushing bracket.
    7. Release the fuel lines and reverse light wiring from their routing brackets.
    8. Note the routing of the starter motor electrical wires, remove the wire mounting nuts, and place the wires aside.
    9. Remove the top and bottom starter motor to engine-transmission mounting fasteners.
    10. Remove the two mounting nuts at the L-shaped mounting bracket.
    11. Loosen the L-shaped bracket to engine block mounting bolt slightly, then remove the bolt while supporting the starter motor.
