Well its my turn for the red cog of *****!
Pulled into my driveway yesterday and got the “Red Cog”.
Turned the car off, turned it on all was good. Took it for a run
around the block, no slipping clutch or bangs. Pulled back to the driveway and then a big
Lurch, the red cog shows up, engine malfunction shows up and the car stalls.
I wait a few restart and I get an immediate red cog and engine message and it stalls.
After that couldn’t even start it as it was stuck in firs gear. So the “you can continue to drive” message isn’t all that true! J
So I had it towed over to BMW.
When they where putting the car on the truck a slew of hydraulic fluid ran out from under the car
On to the ground. So that could be an issue.
The good thing is I already had an appointment this week for the replacement of my front seats.
So timing is everything haha
They looked at it yesterday and it looks like the pump is shot as well as some solenoid, I will know more later today.
So the moral of the story, car ran great….then boom not running at all. No warning!!!
I will update info when I get it.
They gave me a 2010 328i xdrive. Wow do I miss my M6! Feel like I could get sea sick in it, sooooo much body role. Don’t et me wrong, im glad they had something for me in a pinch….but I miss the 6.
