I'm a new member here and am interested to know if anyone can help me diagnose a coiuple of problems I am having with my 2000 523i Auto (E39 I think)
Firstly I get a fairly severe whining from what I am asuming is the power steering pump when I go beyond 1/4 lock in either direction.
Secondly when I move away from stationary I get what I can only describe as a slight wheel spin even though I know that in reality there is no wheel spin at all so I am concerned that I have a gearbox problem.
