  1. 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...
  2. 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 --...
  3. 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...

    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...
  6. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)

  7. 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...
  8. 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...

  10. General BMW Questions
    Hello, this is my first post in the site! although I've been using it for quite some time. 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...
  11. 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...

  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, This is my first post here, hopefully I posted under the right category. So a few months ago I got a BMW E46 320d Touring Automatic with 355k km (220k miles) for my 18th birthday. It ran fine for a couple of days then the turbo died, leading to a diesel runaway. The engine was totaled...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I’ve pretty much made up my mind to buy an E61 with a V8, but when test driving a 550i, I encountered some rather annoying behavior from the Sport Auto trasmission. In short, despite having it in manual mode, whenever my right foot requested any serious response from the engine, it immediately...
