2- When you have the car on a lift, have them check the Guibo aka flex disc- it may be tearing...
3- It's on for like 3 seconds max- if longer then it is the oil sensor. Wait to replace it at next oil change. As stated you need 7 quarts of synthetic plus filter kit. Parts alone run ~$60 so depends how much you want to pay for the labor...
4- ?

I finally got my membership approved, it took 4 days not sure why glad to finally be able to post and reply to threads. I have come to believe that this is one of the most helpful forums out there for bmw's in general. Everyone on here is extremely helpful and dont mind answering the easiest of questions. Well first of all i have a few questions to ask about my car that i was hoping someone could help me with: :loco:
FYI: I have a 2002 e46 330ci black on black.

1. Solely when backing out of somewhere on an incline my car makes a strange noise that a car usually makes when there is low power steering fluid but when the mechanic checked my oil he checked the power steering fluid and said it was fine??????

2. when shifting gears my clutch gives back this sort of rubbing feel and my gearbox as well feels a little hard a budy of mine said it could the rubber in it (he said some proper word that i cant remember) but when I went to autozone I saw "manuel transmission fluid" could that be the problem? (i have a 5 speed if that makes any difference

3. Oil pressure light comes on when I turn on the car but after 3-5 seconds shuts off. Normal behavior?

4. Is there a way I can change or paint the chrome window trim black it looks really good, I already installed the black grilles!

Any help would be great, thanks!

P.S. I really am in love with my bmw but it has me really paranoid so any little noise I freak out, it has 92,802 miles.
