  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I have a couple of issues with my transmission on my AT '06 530xi (6hp19). The transmission fluid was brown, sparkly (small metal shavings), and had an odor to it the last time it was checked. I have never had any fault codes relating to the TCM/transmission. Issues are listed below: 1...
  2. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    Hey all! My first time posting here, but my name is Tyrone and I have a 2005 bmw 325i with 129k miles that I bought about 1/2 months ago. The only issue when I bought it was that the fuel ran too lean, which I got diagnosed and figured out it was because I had a big hole in the air intake hose...
  3. BMW i3 I01 (2014 - 2020)
    Need to replace a worn out transmission mount and the lower engine torque mount on my 2014 i3 Rex. Any recommendations for a good i3 mechanic that can do this in ORange County Ca? Anybody knows if transmission and or motor need to be dismounted for this? I heard this is a repeated problem and...
  4. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    HI folks. I got my transmission rebuilt, including torque converter rebuild. Full rebuild, new ATF, the full deal. Problem is, it has sporadic issues that present in one of the following ways: vibrating skipping/sliding into higher revs, then back down to normal, for about ½ to 2 seconds...
  5. 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...
  6. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey everybody, so my 1999 e39 540i's transmission has been problematic since I bought it. First of all its a slop box, gears are vague and there is about an inch of play in every direction for every gear ( $400 car it was irresistible ). Anyway so I got the thing running, timing chain done among...
  7. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I have a 2010 750i and I would like to swap the transmission for an 8 speed that came in the 2013+ models. Has anyone done this? I’m looking for direction on what is needed. From what I‘m finding the dimensions are the same (let me know if I’m wrong about that). I’m thinking that getting the...

  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    To start this off, I've never driven an automatic bmw before so I'm not sure if this is normal. It's been doing this since I bought it and the previous owner said it was normal for the car but I can't seem to wrap my head around it. When driving if you step on the gas it revs up to around 2800...
  10. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    Greetings, One rainy day my '05 X3 2.5i w/ manual transmission started making an aspirated sputtering sound in the 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd gears between 1k and 3k rpm. It sounds like a much lower pitched car from the Jetson's cartoon.The sound is dependent on rpms but stays the same if the...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Last summer I bought my 2nd e36, a 96 328i with a failed transmission. I fixed up a bunch of things on the car, found a auto trans for the right price and put it in. My first tranny swap. Engine always ran great. The car drives now, but makes a little whirling noise coming from the front of the...
  12. F06 Gran Coupe (2013 - 2018)
    Dear members, I have taken my car (2014BMW 640i X drive gran coupe at 67K)for servicing regular oil change last week. Technician informed me that rear differential guibo needs to change as he sees cracks and also found there are some leaks around the torque bushings. Dealer gave the estimates to...
  13. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    Any thoughts about if its worth changing the fluid in the rear diff? I have 83,000 miles now and just did the transmission partial fluid (4L+) and filter exchange and Transfer Case fluid drain (.5L+), fill and reset adaptations through ISTA+). Very pleased with the results. I think the TC was...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I just replaced the transfer case actuator on my 2006 X3 hoping it would resolve the tranny problems. When I did remove it, some oil did come out but only drops so I'm assuming there should be enough oil in it. I also tried a "transmission reset" where you hold the accelerator for a minute when...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2008 335i and am having some problems with the transmission swap i recently did on it. Picked up a used transmission owner said had just had a full service to the transmission and did the full swap. Filled it up with fluid went on the first drive and the transmission malfunction light...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    so i just bought an 03 325xi and the manual tranny has some issues. it’ll get stuck in gear and not able to shift out or into gear at times. sometimes but not all it will grind when it can’t get into gear. sometimes matching rpms to the gear in trying to get to will allow it to shift. all gears...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello, so I have been dealing with some (mild) symptoms of my clutch going out. Manual trans was put in a while ago (over 147k miles ago) and I think it's about time that I replace the clutch and flywheel. My question is is this possible to do for myself. I don't have a lot of the fancy tools...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    TEAM, My great long roof (owned for 3 years) has started throwing intermittent tranny fault codes. I pull over, shut off, restart, and continue. Repeat. Have already changed filter and fluid. Will do so again. (There were no metal bits in the old filter) Searching now for replacement...
  19. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Around 2+ months ago I had a transmission fluid refresh. I'll note that it wasn't a full flush but an emptying of as much fluid as possible, replacing the filter/pan and then refilling with fluid back to max level. All has been completely well since then but just 2 days ago, I immediately...
  20. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Does anyone know if 635d cab has a way to top up the transmission oil from the engine compartment? Also where can I find workshop manual pages for this car? Thanks in anticipation, Paul
