: 94 525 auto no 3rd or 4th gear

12-15-2008, 02:11 PM
Good morning, I am looking at another e34 and the owner says that tranny still has 1st and 2nd and revers but that 3rd and 4th suddenly gave out.
I tried searching but honestly I suck at it.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Not a common problem. Any idea what kind of symptoms it has? Will it try to go into 3rd or 4th? Does the engine free rev when/if it does?
There is a good chance that the trans is shot.

Hi BDI. Owner said that the 3rd and 4th just suddenly failed. Not slipping. I also asked if there is trans program error but no reply yet. will update asap.
