    Hello, I am facing an issue and i am not sure what the solution is. I was having a long beep whenever i put the vehicle in reverse, after that i had no other sound, parking sensors wouldn't work. I scanned my e46 with a professional tablet and figured out that the issue was the rear left parking...

    I've now done some extensive research and believe I have "cracked the code" with the mysterious transmission light. I will be trying out a couple simple fixes, which will be featured in a write-up I am completing soon. This issue has affected me more than anything else the 330i has thrown my...

    Hello fanatics! I need to test my EDS4(torque converter clutch solenoid) and EDS1(main pressure solenoid) solenoids. What is a good way/are the best ways to do so? Is solenoid failure common? I believe my tranny is not keeping pressure, and jerks with the TC clutch under slow acceleration. It...

The car in question, a 2000 330xi wagon, automatic, has been sitting for five weeks, started every second week. Now, at the latest start...

    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...

    Hello all! New to the forums. Never thought I'd be making one of these posts after all these years reading various FAQs but here I am with an issue that I can't really seem to find any info on. I just bought a 2002 325xi Wagon w/ Automatic transmission with a clunk when I put the car into drive...
  14. E46 Touring
    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...
  16. 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 have an 2000 323i that was having some transmission issues. Its the GM auto. It had been having trouble shifting sometimes and the fault light would come on. 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...
  18. DIY: Do It Yourself
    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?
