    I don't know what I can do more to solve this :( last year I had a severe overheating problem with my tranny and it was fixed by replacing clogged heat exchanger and voltage regulator (trans tstat). now I'm having overheating issue once again, not as severe though, it only happens if I do some...

    Hey guys so i had this happen right after i bought it from a seller and so the tranny light came on and revved high in 3k rpm and then had my mechanic change the oil and filter and it worked perfectly for about a week until it came on again tonight but instead of revving high it just goes to 2k...

    Two nights ago the belt (i think serpentine but i could be wrong because i know there are two, the larger one) broke while i was on the highway, we had it parked in a business where we spent hours today gathering the parts to replace the belt. We ended up having to replace the Power Steering...

    I drive a 2003 325xi with 83,000 miles and I've noticed whenever I shift into Reverse or Drive, it will make a thumping noise along with a small jerk. The car shifts fine when I'm driving, except if I really hammer the gas it'll slightly jerk. I'm wondering what this could be

    Hey guys, I have a few questions about tranny issues on my (92k mile) '06 530i Sedan. One time on the highway, I got a tranny fault code and was put into a safe mode with limited shifting. Took it right to my mechanic and he said that it's a common thing with the tranny's, and they usually have...

    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...

    Hey everybody. I have a 540i with a bad automatic transmission that I'd like to swap out with my 5 speed transmission from my 530i. Since they both have similar engine setups, I was wondering how possible this was. I saw a car with the exact same swap posted on craigslist, so it must be possible...

    So this is nowhere in the near future, and I doubt it will happen at all, but, maybe I'll eventually get a diesel turbo and slap it on. This would be a dirt cheap m20 turbo build. What I wonder is how much you guys think my stock auto tranny could hold. And the only reason I wouldn't get a...

    Hi folks, I have got the transmission on my E46 changed today. I bought a used transmission from an accident BMW with a very low mileage on. However after the mechanic (He was not a BMW Expert) fitted it Unfortunately the car will go to reverse only. When I put it on D mode and the RPMS...

    Hey folks, new here and am looking at a 1990 535i that is for sale locally. I am going to try to look at it in the next day or 2 if he doesn't sell it by then. The car looks quite clean and he says it runs and drives good but when the auto trans is shifting from 1st to 2nd it instead goes into...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So I found a nice 325is on craigslist for $2400, but the seller had just replaced the front brakes and rear tires which puts me into suspicion that he may have been doing brake stands/ burnouts. By doing this with an automatic, will it damage the tranny, or is it all going through the torque...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Alright guys im in need of help, recently took my car to my mechanic because I noticed a huge leak below. After inspection he said the leak was coming from the transmission pump. Let me say the tranny was working fine without any issues and the leak was just the pump. So he took it off and sent...

    Just bought my new to me 760li it is an 04 with 78,000 miles the only reason I got it was because I loved the 745li and this was a 760li priced at 13,900$ I had never seen one for that low of a price so I testdrive the heck out of it and it had a slight 2:1 shift problem so I took a chance and...

    so in the past week ive noticed a new noise coming from my e30. when i release my clutch pedal and my car is in neutral (so i can idle at standstill like in my driveway) I noticed a very distinct, and seemingly painful(for the car) rattling noise come from the transmission/driveshaft area under...

    I called BMW dealer here in Lebanon for OEM oil transmission. They wanted to know if the one within my GM tranny is of red or white(transparent) color. According to my VIN it is red in their tables, but it seems that there are 2 adopted oil types by BMW. The old one is red & the new one is...
  20. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I recently purchased a 1998 740iL (190k miles). When I start the car in the morning, or after a few hours of sitting, the car will not accelerate. For the first 5-10min, it goes no more than 5mph, pedal to the floor. In Neutral, the engine revs just fine. Temperature gauge is cold. After a...
