What did you do with your 7 series today ?

Havenít seen this thread here.

Iíll go first.

Got a Drivetrain Malfunction Warning. Went in to safe mode. Restarted and got home. Found this plug when I changed out the plugs & coils. Now runs better with no warnings.

Yes.
That was cylinder 5. Occasionally felt a little vibration, but no loss of performance and no warnings until BOOM youíre in the SAFE MODE.
All other plugs changed out and appeared as if engine running well.

2) oil needed a change
3) 2 flat tires on the right side and a discontinued type had me change all 4
4) on the way home the texas roads hot the best of my windshield so had that replaced on tuesday

Happy thanksgiving

Son’s 750 developed a major problem. Started off by speed dependent ticking sound worse when making a Right turn, but present also on Left turns. We just did all rotors and pads, so got car up and wheels off to look for the issue. No rubbing of any components. When would turn wheels, could NOT reproduce ticking. Made an appointment to have our Indy look at it. Next day BOOM, multiple warnings. Chassis stabilization, ABS, etc... Also car lost AWD and was now only RWD. Car handled well, though lost AWD. On restart was AWD. Would revert to RWD with all the warnings if car accelerated hard or driven vigorously. Our Indy found that the tie rods on the car were the wrong ones and the right one having a breakdown at the connector point. Also transfer case damaged irreparably.
Car will be ready on Wednesday.
Thank god for the quality extended warranties I have on all my cars. 7k worth of parts and labor costing me 300 USD. My Indy is the best one in the Syracuse area and did us well.

Add: also had transmission fluid changed.
