Mein Auto: 94 740il

1994 740il will not move when first started. It will shift fine when warmed up feels like almost a brake is locked. The trac light is on dash. Tranny runs through gears fine when hot has fluid could there be somekind of vapor lock in tranny?

Have you checked the level? The fluid expands as it heats, may be too low when cold.

Re: tranny

check the bowden cable running from the abs servo under the brake booster the runs to the asc+t throttle body in the elbow. mine snapped and was doing the same sort of thing. traction light always on and weird acceleration but tranny seemed ok. its a dealer only part that only about 40$ u.s.
