  1. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello, I'm making this post because I'm not sure where to go from here, over the past couple months my E36 has developed a stalling problem when in traffic, I drive a 1992 325i sedan Automatic. This issue is very odd to me, I had my transmission looked over, fluids changed and filter changed due...
  2. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So my transmission has been overheating for a few months now but for a while I was thinking I just needed a rebuild and was putting it off, until recently when I realized that the harsh 3-2 and 2-1 downshifts were happening after an extended drive. I used INPA to check the analogue data in the...

  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone, first post so I'm not sure where to put this post... Bought my first E92 335i about 2 weeks ago after owning 2 E90s. Today while driving, I slowed down to stop at a light. When it turned green, I rolled onto the pedal with nothing happening. Tried again, and the transmission popped...
  5. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, I've been trying to diagnose a very subtle and sporadic clicking noise coming from the flywheel inspection window at idle, when i decided to pry at the flywheel with a bar and saw the amount of play it had. First of all, the tooth ring seems to be slightly loose, as the car starts...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I have a couple of issues with my transmission on my AT '06 530xi (6hp19). The transmission fluid was brown, sparkly (small metal shavings), and had an odor to it the last time it was checked. I have never had any fault codes relating to the TCM/transmission. Issues are listed below: 1...
  7. General BMW Questions
    Does anybody have any ideas as to why the gear lever won't engage some gears? I noticed that if I pull the gear lever all the way to the bottom gears (3,2,1) there is a lot of resistance. Sometimes the vehicle rolls while in park, other times it engages and works fine. Another observation --...
  8. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I must've read 100 threads on bimmerforums trying to find a solution. The engine runs beautifully, well maintained about 150k miles. When I put the car in gear most of the time it will not engage at all and acts as though it's in neutral(free revs) some times it will take awhile and it will...

  10. General BMW Questions
    Long story short- The shifter on automatic transmissions has unpredictable behavior. Full story: When I go to the car wash and need to shift to neutral in my 2020 330i automatic transmission, I can never reliably shift into N. If i just push the shifter forward one click, nothing happens. If I...
  11. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi Guys, Firstly I would like to say I am very new to this page so apologies in advance if there is already a similar thread. I have just bought my 2010 bmw 320d Auto. This is the first automatic i have owned so i am a little rusty with how things should be. Firstly, when i am at low revs...
  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a ‘98 1.9 z3 w/ 4l30e auto trans. I don’t currently have transmission, problems, but I am considering mods to increase performance. One mod would be lower gearing. Wikipedia says there are two versions of the 4l30e. The ‘other’ one has 1st 20% lower and 2nd 10% lower. 3rd, 4th, and R are...
  13. BMW Coding and Programming
    I wanted to disable the function that moves the steering column down and to the rear to my saved position when I enter the car and then tucks the column back away again when turning the ignition off. For me, at least, I have plenty of room to get out even with the column in my driving position...

Ive encountered a problem where my 2003 E46 sometimes when I start the engine, it will stay on for a few seconds and then the rpm meter will try to stay on then just dies... then I think after I turn on...
  16. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Dear friends, My E90 (diesel, automatic transsmision, 220k km) is mapped (bought it without knowing this) and since I have it, the upshifting is kind of jerky (the shift time is around 2 seconds) but only at high RPM (>2800-3000) and usually from 4->5 and from 5->6. In semi-automatic mode it...
