Mein Auto: 2002 m3 conv. smg
Hi guys please help, trans. Smg1? Computer?

Hi Everyone,

I just bought a 2002 m3 black conv. SMG1 Love the car, so much fun. Today I parked it and now its flashing NEUTRAL (O) the entire time. I put it in R does nothing, keeps on flashing (R)... I change it to engage to gear 1 its flashing...the car wont do anything, stays in NEUTRAL..

If anyone knows anything about this or if there is something to do please help.... I love BMW and I love this car..I dont want to sell it already.

My friends who have an M3 told me scary stories...i didnt listen, did i make a mistake.

ok you guys found the problem, the hood was open the whole time. it was at the shop, the mechanic was checking why my oil was so low since he just did an oil change on it 30 days ago. while he was checking the car the hood was open and he tried to drive the car. he told me the transmission is bad, something with the computer and he totaly scared me. you guys put me at ease now, thank you for the information. you guys are awesome.

Now i just need to see why the oil is burning so fast he said. He put mobil one synthetic and said for me to check it every few days.

will see....

thanks again guys.

FYI E46 M3s have SMG2. SMG1 was on the European E36 M3 Evos.

Mein Auto: which day is this?
I am not sure that Mobil One is the correct viscosity.
