I have had a 520i E39 for 12 years that has now knocked up over 243k miles. Last week to oil rad failed and had a new one fitted. after driving it away the car developed a rubbing noise which I can only think is coming from the gearbox. I took the car for a 64 mile run and noted the rev counter increase even though the car is not going any faster. It has been suggested that the gearbox oil level is low. However, I am struggling to locate a garage in Hayes Bromley who deals with automatic gearboxes. My question is. A) does this sound correct. B) does anyone know of a garage in Hayes/Bromley area that is able to deal with an automatic transmission. Any help would be greatly received. I am a complete newbie when it comes to cars.
