This is the check engine light does it come on then off? did it stay on? if this light is comming on any one of a hundred or more thing can cause it. from a loose gas cap to a sticking sensor. you might want to have it hooked to a computer to see what is causing it might be a minor problem like low washer fluid and it could be the start of a serious one. these lights remind you of scheduled maintinance,low fluids,oil changes ect depending on the manufacturer standards.i would check all of the fluids and if they are ok then get it checked better to be safe than sorry

My bmw 1999 e43 model is having problems changing gear. The light on the dashboard comes up (triangle warning sign) and it goes on 3rd and 4th gear mode and will not go on 1st or 2nd gear. The car is automatic transmission and it revs really high without moving when i accelerate. I have gone to countless mechnics that tell me different problems.
One mechanic said that the transmission oil needs to be changed and serviced.
The other mechanic said that it might be the TCC solenoid problem.
And the other mechanic said i need a new transmission.
So this afternoon im going to get the transmission serviced and checked for $130 before i make any other decisions to fix or replace it. Has anyone else had this problem? and what did you have to do to fix it?

Could be many things, but fuel pressure regulator, leaking injectors are most likely. DO NOT DRIVE UNTIL FIXED. If the fuel is really getting into the oil pan, oil will be diluted and could damage engine bearings.
