Was running fine until all of a sudden the warning light came on for the transmission next to the D in automatic mode. Now it starts off in fourth highest gear does not go into first second...
  2. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hello guys, Recently done auto transmission retrofit on manual F20 pre-lci. All hardware and wiring are present and done correctly - 100% sure. EGS ISN is cleared prior to any coding and connection to the car. Prior to this retrofit checked also compatibility of DDE and FEM with auto...

    I have a 1997 528i automatic and recently manual downshifts to 2nd or 3rd to slow down going downhill using engine braking have stopped working. Downshifting to 1st gear still works but of course the RPM in 1st gear is too high for normal driving speed downhill. When you shift down to 3rd or...

    I have a 2003 BMW 325i, automatic transmission. I bought this car two years ago with about 80,000 miles on it, and the majority of the records for the vehicle came with it (if not all of them). I drive a lot for work and I am now nearing 132,000 miles. I have never had a transmission fluid...

    2001 BMW 325i 168,000 miles automatic transmission Car starts and drives well from cold, but after I've been driving awhile, once I stop at a stop light or sign, I'll have to press on the gas, and the car will rev to 2,500 rpms and then clunks into gear. Goes into gear (1st), and 2nd and on...

    So I got a 2003 325i auto recently. It has almost 131k on it. I got the transmission flushed less than 1k ago. When the car is cold or has been sitting for a few hours, it will feel like the tranny is slipping or something when I just start accelerating from a stop. This was happening to me...

    Hey I'm new here so sorry if I'm posting in a weird place, but I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my car. I've got a '99 323i e46 and I think I'm having transmission issues but it may be something else. I stopped at an intersection the other day and when I hit the gas the engine revved...

    Hello E46 enthusiasts - i have an important question about the SMG II transmission - can anyone tell me: When you are in manual mode + sport mode and you rav 1st gear to max RPM, will it automaticly shift to 2nd gear or stay in 1st - letting me control a drift??? Thanks a lot for your answers...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    So I went to go start my car today and the 4x4 warning light, automatic transmission light and the Orange brake light all came on does anyone what this means or is the cause??? When I drove it it felt like it was limping between 1000-2000rpm and when I would brake it felt light if I was in a manual

    I have a 2001 BMW 530i (build date 07/2001 - 160K miles) that just experienced the "no-reverse" issue. Reverse just stopped working, no click when going into reverse gear, nothing. Forward still seems to work, except I can't get the car out of my parking spot to test this out. Parked on a down...
  11. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hello All, I am looking to get a new 228I Xdrive and am wondering does anyone know what the actual model of the 8 speed auto is? Or better yet how much it costs to replace said transmission? The reason for asking is I have had exceptionally bad luck with transmissions and want to know up front...
  12. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Okay I got such great advice on my last question that I need something else to work on now. I have a 1984 318i with an automatic transmission. The car was made for the 55 mph world and we now live in the 70 mph world. I have read on here that I can change the rear end (Diff) from a 3.73 to a...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 2000 Z3 that has a transmission malfunction light on. The transmission jerks between 2nd and 3rd gear . There is no slippage and it will go into all gears. Could that be a faulty vehicle speed sensor? If so , Is it hard to fix ?
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)

  15. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I just tried a partial fluid change on my ’04 BMW X5 3.0i E53 AT, by draining from pan drain with engine off until dripping stopped, and then refilling with fresh oil via filler plug. I drained a little over 4.0 liters, but I’m having trouble refilling. Car is leveled. During first refill...

    I did a shark injector tune on my 1998 528i to make it more fun to drive. As you may know, these are best with a transmission tune. I have the 4 speed automatic that was built by GM for BMW. One interesting note is that even though I have the 20 pin round port under the hood, I also have the...

    Hi Guys, I wonder if I can ask for your expert advice on my problem. BACKGROUND About 7 months ago I set off on my bi-weekly 40 mile trip to London (20 miles on the motorway 20 miles through town) - I joined the motorway and accelerated aggressively to overtake some slow vehicles and my...
  20. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Had a good search and cant find anything about transmission shunts on the forum. I have an automatic and find that in slow moving traffic I get a shunt from the transmission after I take my foot off the gas. This is at low speeds only and never happens at higher / fast speeds. I don't get it...
