  1. F12/F13 M6 & F06 M6 Gran Coupe (2012 - current)
    Hey Guys, Thank you for taking the time to read this. I have a 2014 BMW M6 GC with 42k miles So I was driving my car and had a drive train malfunction. When I took it to BMW they said replace the clutches. I ended up going with aftermarket clutches and got them done at SSP performance. After...
  2. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    My car was driving fine and I parked at school. Went to leave campus and the engine wouldn't crank. There was an "F" displayed in the gear display, along with the light for a transmission error (gear with !). From my research the F means failure and I'm not too excited about that. I had to tow...
  3. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    Hello..New to the Forum! Just bought my 1st BMW (2009 750Li) back in Middle of October..just over 90k miles. Rose fine for about 2 weeks..especially on the Highway:) All of a sudden ...when starting car up in the morning (or after sitting anywhere for few hours). Transmission began to "Jerk"...

    I just bought a 97 bmw 540i/6 manual with about 95k. Its been about 2 weeks with it and shifting to 2nd and 3rd feels rusty and not smooth anymore. I feel as if the shifter goes through some metal parts before it engages in the gear. And i have to give it a sort of slow push into the gear, if...
  5. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey I'm new here so sorry if I'm posting in a weird place, but I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my car. I've got a '99 323i e46 and I think I'm having transmission issues but it may be something else. I stopped at an intersection the other day and when I hit the gas the engine revved...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have an 07 BMW 550i. I noticed when I was driving it wouldn't come out of first I went immediately home and checked the fluid and it was nearly dry! I did a little research and came across similar incidents. Others say when they added fluid back in their car ran normal. Other said they got the...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Everything was running fine, then one day noticed car was a bit sluggish to start up initially, then wouldn't start later that night. Jumped off, ran for a while with no problems (lights, radio, everything working fine), but when shut off, still wouldn't start on its own. Went to autozone and...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    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...
  9. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Please help! :( The past couple months have been a bit of hell with my car. I have an 05 645 SMG. I'm not the saviest when it comes to car mechanics so please excuse the noob-ness in describing my issue here: Currently, from dead stop, i put the car in gear and accelerate but the car barely...

    Looking for some advice with some possible transmission problems on a Bimmer I just recently purchased. Here's the back story. Been wanting to purchase a BMW for a while now. Finally found one I like, took it for a test drive and got the money for it. Test drive was fine. A week later I got the...
  11. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    99 BMW 740 il, M62/TU Engine, Automatic, 179XXX Miles, Car shifts and pulls fine when under light acceleration, but as soon as the gas pedal is depressed enough to initiate a down shift the engine revs but the car does not accelerate like the transmission is not engaging the gear. Seems to...
  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 06 x3 with 80k miles, the yellow transmission light came on and limits the transmission from shifting, if you shut the car off the light goes out and it shifts fine for about 20 miles and the light comes back on and wont shift right. Our local BMW dealer wants 6K to replace the...
  13. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    G'day b'ys, first post on Bimmerfest and all. So, I traded my E30 for an E34 the other day, and as I was driving from Hamilton to Barrie and when I got off the highway and started going through the gears, when I clutched out for 3rd gear, there was a slight "spinning" noise but as I throttled...

  16. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I got gifted a automatic e30 320i and it came with a few troubles. This is my first car and to be honest my knowledge is very limited. To begin with, when I start the car the idle seems quite unsteady. It'll idle like this in park for some time but occasionally will just turn off. When I do...

  18. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2001 X5 3.0 and recently ordered a reconditioned transmission using the VIN number. When I installed the transmission the torque converter seems like it is stuck or binding. The trans will not turn even when trying at the flywheel. I used the alignment bolt for the torque converter. I...
