    Re: Have you put in a new voltage regulator??

    No I havent, although i plan on replacing the alternator because my first alternator was bad, so i got this one used as a temporary replacement, but it is also bad. I will replace my alternator once i figure out what to do about the screeching from underneeth.

    Squeeking when in Drive

    My '85 735i starts to squeek when i put it in Drive. when it idles it sounds normal, but once i put it in drive, and it is stoped it starts to sqeek from underneeth. Once i start moving it sqeeks more and more until i hit like 10 - 15 mph then it stops, and right before it shifts it sqeeks again then goes away while in the short process of shifting and then returns for a second then goes away once more... in higher speed it doesnt make noise at all. it makes noise as its down shifting though... rpm related?

    note: im forced to revv my car to about 3000 rpm when i start it to get the alternator to its propper voltage output.. ive been doing this for about a year now. and i know that the transmission fails at that rpm when in neutral or park... anything i can do or is it a transmission job?
