Mein Auto: E90 325i
Transmission Malfunction, DSC Malfunction, Car Shut off

Hello,

I recently started experiencing issues with my 2006 BMW 325i. Car was on and running put into reverse then car shut off. Tried to restart it but only cranked for a few seconds. Finally, it started but these malfunction errors, Tire pressure and Service Engine soon light came up and my car wouldnt shift and was stuck at 3k RPM. I used a cheap OBD2 reader and got codes: P0335, P0700 and P1727.

Been a week so far and one Indy shop said they think its the Crankshaft sensor. Every morning the car cranks and doesnt start then about the 4th try it starts but is rough and then the malfunction lights and service engine soon come on. As I go to drive it doesnt want to shift and RPM's only get higher.

Today it started like normal then after driving 1/2 a mile the malfunction lights kicked on, my RPM's started climbing and car wouldnt shift. I pulled over to let the car warm up and rev the engine. Drove about 10 miles with no issues and all warning lights were gone.

Could it be crankshaft sensor? Wheel speed sensor? Low transmission fluid? Water in Battery compartment? An update to software for ECU?

Those latter 2 faults indicate an issue with the trans....my bet is the shift solenoids are bad or clogged.

Use a BMW specific scanner and have the trans module (EGS) scanned for faults.

Would the shift solenoid be the part thats located in the front of engine block? I believe there is two of them. I also attached a photo.

No. Shift solenoids are inside the transmission on the bottom when you take off the Transmission cover/pan. That is a Crankshaft or Camshaft sensor (usually interchangeable and on the engine).

No, it would be a transmission assy. View below! See the row of 7 solenoids on the left? They've colored caps....

BMW Dealer said I have a mechatronics sealing sleeve leak. Do you think my car is doing all of this because of the leak or more so those colored solenoids need to be replaced? Or will that entire unit need to be replaced?

I thought it was just the crankshaft sensor causing these symptoms and I don't want to buy the sensor if its something completely different. Thanks for the video CALWATERBOYDUE

Mechatronic's both HERE and THERE.....awkward, yes, but entirely doable in your garage on jack stands.

No solenoids will be disturbed during this procedure.

So do you think just the sleeve would fix the issues or is that whole system needing to be replaced? Thanks for those PDF's very helpful!

I think it will satisfy the dealer's diagnosis.

Im actually having the same issue but only started after I replaced the Starter that went out, Never had issues with my car/trans until the starter had went out, is it possible when the starter was replaced that the crankshaft positioning sensor was unplugged causing the same issues? Im getting Crankshaft, gearbox malfunctions as codes, car will not shift and cranks for several seconds but starts everytime. my car is a 2006 325xi
