    My 97 540iA has decided to develop a grinding noise when under loading. When you put your foot on the accelerator at cruising speeds there is an awful grinding noise from the transmission. The revs also fluctuate slightly. Once your foot is either lifted off or pressed harder into the pedal the...

    Hey forum, I'm having an issue that I noticed the other day, when coming to a stop my transmission feels as if it switches to neutral and takes a couple seconds to get into gear so the car can go. When I noticed it i thought maybe the tranny is low on fluid. Couldn't see any leaks. So I figured...

    Hello all. This is my 1st post. I recently bought a 86 528E. The speedo says 300k and is stopped. Ha The car was shifting OK when I bought it. The shifter was very very loose. I installed new front and rear metal console mounts. The car now jumps out of 1st gear with a bang. I can make it...
  7. Parting Out
    Deciding whether to rebuild or replace. Prefer U.S. model (GM 4L30E) with under 100,000 miles and located in So. Cal. but will consider any automatic transmission that bolts into a March 1998 build date 528i. IF you have the European tranny (Z5 version) the deal must include the TCM, etc...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2001 325i, Auto, 119K And that's exactly what I hear when braking or coasting and then THUD! from what feels like the center of the car, RPMs bounce and then normalcy. There is a leak from atop the unit next to the oil filter... looks like a transmission fill?... not sure what the name is. I...

    I get a rough clunk when putting the tranny into drive or back to park. When i shift from 1st gear to 2nd gear i get a jolt like somebody just bumped into me from the rear, and sometimes from 2nd to 3rd too. Sometimes around 20-70mph i get an rpm spike of 100rpm's up and down like 3 times, then...

    Like some others, I just bought an E39 528i (March 1998 production) which is stuck in 1st gear. I pulled the codes and came up with PO141 (O2 Heater Circuit, Bank 1, Sensor 2), PO733 (Gear 3 incorrect ratio), PO732 (Gear 2 incorrect ration) & PO720 (OSS - output speed sensor circuit). With...

  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So for the past several months I have noticed that when my 5 gets between 35 and 40 mph it starts surging, like it starts loosing power but gains it back, and it only happens within 35-40 and just steady driving. I took it to the dealer, and there are no codes present, the service manager...
  15. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Okay, so yesterday, all was well, took my 7 for a drive, parked it, no signs of problems. Today, I started the seven, I got a 'Transmission Failsafe warning' it said that only gears 3 and 5 are available. The car still drove, but didn't drove very well because it had only gears 3 and 5...
