    Hey guys, I have a 04 325ci and today was a rough day, on my way home from work I went into limp mode. The EML and traction control went off so I pulled over and restarted the car. After that I noticed a severe loss of power but no check engine light, any ideas?

    Hello everyone, I have had my 2003 325ci for about five years now. Was told my transmission is done and needs to be rebuilt. I have some trouble believing this and I wonder if replacing TCU would work. Please read on... About 2-3 years ago, I started experiencing the transmission limp mode...

    Hi guys, I own a 2001 BMW e46 325ci. My car was driving perfectly up until yesterday when I stopped at a signal and the car suddenly went into limp mode. (The only light on the dash is the cog with an exclamation point - no check engine lights or anything else) I tried to reset the transmission...

    I am new to the forum but amazed that .. for an E46 which has been around a VERY long time, little seems to be actually, definitively known about limp mode. Lots of guessing .. little solid knowledge. Even how it is defined is hazy. Some say it just limits your speed while others show video of...

    Haven't been able to find a fix to this and no one has gone into my specific detail. First off, EML limp mode is going like this: EML Traction and the amber brake light comes on like if you turn off traction all the way off Throttle input is zero Severely rough idle of 1k to 1.4k rpms even when...

    Hey Fanatics We drive Bmws for their luxury and sport not for their convience and affordability. My question is does anyone know whether there is a procedure for making a new to the car "automatic" Tranny compatible with my e46 after a Tranny swap and if so can it be done with INPA NCSexpert...

    Hi All, Seemingly strange things going on with my 2001 330i, hoping to get some feedback. Story: 3 months ago I washed my car, went to drive afterwards and the throttle had a mind of it's own. Found a P0339 code, cleared it, idled the car for 10 minutes, code never came back and all was fine...

    Hey guys, I'm new to the workings of an e46. I've owned this car about a month and a half and I'm still figuring out its 'quirks.' Two days ago I powered into a turn on a cold engine (just leaving work). Everything was fine until about the end of 3rd gear when the transmission hesitated, the...

    I started to post about this about a week ago but found a page that had a check and fix... Here's the scenario. 2003 BMW 325i 248k miles. The engine would idle fine - super smooth and quiet. If you push the pedal hard, it would go into limp mode. If you got about 3500 RPMs it would go into...
