    WIP Showing my e46 for the first time in a few years. I've always been too critical of my own stuff. Never even had a forum avatar before today. But the past few weeks have been pretty rewarding compared to 4 years of mostly maintenance so I'm feeling finally ready to start this build thread...

    Hey all, Ive got a curious question regard the auto trans across the ENTIRE E46 line up. More specifically what determines wether a car has a steptronic trans or not. Based on this site: (within the year) https://www.automobile-catalog.com/make/bmw/3-series_e46/3-series_e46-1_sedan/1999.html...

    Driving along and without warning drive seems to have quit. No matter what gear no go. On Jack stands all wheels and drive lines rotate freely. No noise, no disconnect. Could this be an electrical issue? Fuse (F102=TCM)? I seen this topic before but never resolved. Thx. One note, for about a...

    Sorry in advance if I posted in the wrong forum. :hi: I took my 323ci for a fun day at a wet skidtrack, disabled DSC and it slid quite easily and was a lot of fun despite being a open diff automatic. I left it in steptronic mode the whole day and had one downside which was quite annoying when...

    Hi, Long story short: no crank. First I thought it might be the battery on the key so EWS was not recognizing it, but then I noticed that in the small display on the right "P" was missing. After some digging I found out that the sensor (Transmission Range Sensor) which sends the gear leaver...

    I have a 2002 bmw 325i, and my flex plate broke because the transmission bolts came loose on me, I replaced that but didnt set my torque converter back in right and the shaft that goes into the flywheel snapped off. I was wondering if was ok to use the same torque converter until I can afford...
  14. E46 Engine Swaps
    I have a 2002 325ci with a manual transmission I wanted to know if it would make a difference if I tried to swap another engine, just with lower miles, but coming from an automatic car? Will the bell housing, etc. bolt up the same or would I have to do a conversion?

I did the transmission service with Redline D4, seemed to shift better for a while but the problem came back 100 miles or so later and...

    Hey everybody. So I have a 2000 323i automatic that just won't behave. A couple of days ago I was driving home and overheated. A surprise since last summer I replaced the expansion tank, radiator, and hoses. Got the car towed home refilled with coolant and she held everything without spilling a...

    Hi, My car has had a transmission issue for a while now but only in drive mode. When the car is in drive it down shifts very hard when coming to a stop and sometimes when accelerating but for some reason it isn't the case in sport mode. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Hey everyone. Earlier today I was driving to work and was running a little behind schedule. I was driving quite spiritedly and stomped on the gas. It climbed up to 6,800 RMP but it kept going up! I immediately moved it to manual mode and shifted up into 2nd, but the tach did reach a little over...
