problem #1

X5 4.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,642 miles

Low coolant light kept coming on. Discovered coolant leaking down back of engine from the bell housing on transmission. Valley Pan was cracked, and gasket bad. Replaced both. Many hours of labour involved. After a short time googling, this is a very common problem with BMW.
