    Hi, I drive an 04 645ci convertible, 100k miles, SMG trans. It***8217;s at the trans shop because the transmission failed. All the symptoms point to hydraulic pump problems. The shop has done an analysis and at this point has noticed that the relay which activates the pump is not receiving...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Let me start off by saying I've done A LOT of searching and can't seem to come to any conclusion based on my specific issues as they pertain to the codes and errors I seem to be experiencing. I know this seems like a common issue and I've gone through tons of feeds on transmission issues but...

    Hello all, Could use some help on our current situation. We purchased a 2011 335i less than a year ago and within the past month they have replaced the transmission not once, but twice! This car is under 24k miles might I add. Three times now I have brought it into BMW with issues of...

    Bad news on the eve of a long road trip to Tahoe this weekend! It's suddenly and unexpectantly my turn for the E39 TRANS. FAILSAFE PROG transmission failure error message. After fueling up so that I'm ready to leave before dawn early Friday morning, the automatic transmission wouldn't shift out...

    I have looked at the forums long enough but I have not found what I need to make this decision. Please HELP! I own two E39's: 1) 1998 528i with a rebuilt engine and, it seems, a bad tranny. 2) 2001 525i with a cracked head (don't ask, all I can say is I wasn't in the car!:bawling:) Is there a...

    So today I was driving, leaving a parking lot and I hit a bump on the way out of school. The parking lot is higher and it grades downward toward the street. The car was in first gear and after I hit the grade/bump the car revved up and I couldn't shift into ANY gear. The car starts, runs fine...

    Hey everyone. My 2003 525i looks like it lost all the Trans fluid on my way to Tampa the other day on the highway and it spread all up the trunk with the wind. I have just over 120,000 miles on it and everything else runs like a top. I'm being told it's a pump seal that's most likely wrong with...

    So I have just lost reverse in my 1992 535i automatic. It's up to 197k on the odometer so I figure there will be more trouble following this loss. I am set on doing a 5spd swap but not sure which transmission to look for. Anyone out there have any advice on this? -THM

    Hello all, I bought my first used BMW 325XI in August, and it's been running great up until about a couple weeks ago. To give a bit of background, for the last two weeks it has been shaking a lot between 30-60MPH, below or above that threshold it seems to be just fine. I've been meaning to...

    Hi I am new to this forum and I honestly don't know a lot about cars in general. As a female I've had little exposure to car repairs, but I am eager to learn. I purchased a 1996 328i BMW about a month ago. I was very excited to get this car and dispite the many problems Ive incurred I still love...

    Okay, so I have a 2002 330Ci with 96K. My service engine light came on about two months ago. I took it to the dealership and they said the engine thermometer was stuck open. Had it repaired along with some belts at a local reputable BMW shop. Not 24 hours after I picked my car up, the check...
