    Hi all, I have a 2008 535i with about 165k miles. I replaced fluid about 130k. I've been having issues for months now with my auto transmission. Earlier this year I was getting issues with torque converter slip, especially when it was cold. It eventually got to the point that when trying to...
  4. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Just suddenly lost reverse yesterday, it acts like it's in neutral. I did some research and believe I have the ZF transmission so I suspect the reverse drum might have gone bad. Are there any tests I can run to see if this is the issue? No transmission shops in my area want to touch it and one...

    I have a 2008 328xi e92 6MT. When in idle with clutch engaged, there's a fluttering noise coming from the transmission. When I press the clutch in, noise goes away. It's gotten worse over the last 6-8 weeks. Is this the throwing bearing?

    I didn't see anything about this in the 1 series forum so I'll put this out there in case anyone comes across this code. It might or might not be the solution for your problem but I feel its a good place to start. So I solved the issue today after troubleshooting for a week. *To recap the...
