E63 SMG lll - Beast down for 8 months!( canada ! )
this is my first post in years... so please pardon my language if not accurate.... Btw I'm in Toronto - Ontario-Canada now.
I own an E63 2005 M6 ( yup one of the first) since then I probably had the clutch changed like 5 times and flywheel 3 times ( Car as 102,000 KM on it) between 2005 - 2016 I lived and had the car repaired in The Netherlands before I moved to Toronto Canada ( shipped the car with me).
My Journey of Pain:
Aug 2018 car gives transmission erros ( Engine Fault, Transmission fault) puts its self in neutral upon restarting the egine it would drive.
Sep 2018 approx. 4 weeks later Car breaks down ( thankfully I had just stopped in the garage), care was on neutral, wont put a gear on nor start.
Jan 2019 after 4 months of trouble shooting the mechanic ( indy) says it was the slave cylinder ( ripped me off for a gas tank pump, ECS programming, wiring etc..) I believe there was also water that went into the car that damaged the cables, however the car was running.
Jan 2019 2 weeks later the driving on the highway @90km/h the car starts to loose power, its as if the clutch was seizing I tried to keep going but the loss of power was continuous so I managed thankfully to pull to the side, stopped, some codes came out about clutch overheating, transmission fault, I let the car /clutch cool down for 2 hours started but nope there was no movement what so ever, however car could be put in neutral.
June 2019 Mechanic announces his complete failure ( after 5 months !!!) said he changed the clutch and bearing and flywheel but the car still wont move nor put on a gear !!! it's insane !
I Don't know what to do... could it be a faulty installation from his side ? could there be any other root cause to that other than the clutch ? I wouldn't go to the stealership as they said replacing the clutch/flywheel is like a 10,000 c$ job !!
Finally , if anyone knows an SMG expert in Toronto-Ontario, Canada ... please pass me on the contact... I am desperate and its too frustrating... any advise/guidance would be great.....I don't want to do anything anymore until I get advise from you guys....it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to find an SMG expert around here !!!
p.s I have other side isses like massive gas consumption ( 240 km a tank more or less driving in the city, used to do 350-380 in the past). and a suspension issue ( clunking from te right side when I turn the wheel as if there is a coupling seizing...)
