Mein Auto:
Limp Mode

For Gods Sake ... i need help.
I bought a 92 320i, Automatic Transmission the car was so good on one day it suddenly went into limp mode kicking on 3rd gear, with no signs or lights on the screen even if the car is still cold in the morning or hot on 35 degrees in lebanon at noon, switching it off and on solves the problem and happens suddely, and am fed up of mechanics, so dummy, everyone creates a solution with just me paying for each damn repair, replaced gearbox oil and filter, kick down switch which is beneath the throttle paddle, cleaned the MAF by air, replaced both Chip boxes ... Any Help since am fed up of this sh** no one nows whats causing this issue. I dont believe this is happening with a company like BMW

You have a 25 year old automatic and you blame BMW because it's now dying? It's lived longer than most, by a considerable margin.

Start looking for a replacement transmission, or consider a 5-speed swap.
