Driveline Vibration

In the past year or so my E12 has had a drive line vibration that is slowly getting worse. It mainly vibrates around 40mph road speed. At 50mph and above it goes away. I have since changed the guibo since it was cracked lightly (no change in vibration) and checked things like the center bearing (loo...

How about the combo relay or the AFM fuel pump switch. The fuel pumps may be shutting down for a split second causing the stumble. I have had two separate problems over the years with both the AFM flap fuel pump switch going bad and also the combo relay overheating. It started out the car would only...

Antifreeze types.

I am curious also. In my E12 I used the normal Zerex green stuff for 18 years without a problem. When our cars were build I do not think they had any real special antifreeze requirements.

A/C fluid sloshing around
