Mein Auto: 1998 528i
im having problems with my 98 528i automatic transmission and im thinking of doing a rebuild transmission shifts automatically from 1st to 2nd but doesnt shift to 3rd automatically unless i take the shift knob back from "D" to "3" and then push it quickly back to "D" then it shifts to 3rd gear and then it shift to 4th automatically if i dont pull the shift knob from "D" to "3" and back to "D" while on the high way it stays at 2nd gear and the car goes 30MPH while the engine RPM goes to 4000RPM, iam guessing the 3rd gear shift selenoid is bad and needs to be replaced, but since the tranny needs to be opened might as well do a full rebuild and change everything out.
