Hello im having a major problem with my 96 BMW 528i I had a air leak in the rubber upper air intake boot it was dry rotted I changed it and drove the car after and it drove fine parked it and the next mourning I started the car and the traction control light is on and the car barely moves in d or reverse when I say barely moves I mean I press the gas pedal nothing but rpms go up and car just revs and just slowly rolls my check engine light is on I used my car MDscan tool and got a few codes but only 1 transmission code p0730 I think my fluid is dirty because previously my transmission was slipping so I thought maybe it was low on fluid and bought some Lucas synthetic transmission fluid for older foreign cars I really don't know what type of fluid was in there before I put that in so I'm thinking maybe my filter is clogged could that be the issue please help there is no gearbox light or transmission light on car won't move just revs up
