    I was driving for a while the other night and everything was good. I stopped in a parking lot and went to move and I could barely get my car into 1st gear. The entire car moves forward when pushing on the shift knob. Its bad almost through every gear but the odd shift goes smoothly. I have no...

    I was in 3rd, went to shift into 4th at about 5500rpm and I shifted into 2nd... Don't know how or why I have never done this and car instantly lurched and looked like it hit over 7k... Instantly pushed clutch in couldn't have been more than a second. I coasted in neutral and engine was idling...

    Ah, haven't had to create a thread in a while. I've been quietly asking myself if my auto is shifting differently due to my bad VANOS seals that I refuse to replace. This is all pertaining to light/slow acceleration, like around town. I drove my friends 330Ci and that thing shifted really early...

    I have a Slammed 2003 330ci manual that last week decided it didn't want to shift anymore. I had driven in the morning ING gotten home had lunch and when I went to leave again it didn't want to shift into gear. Clutch feels basically the same as prior to not wanting to shift but it just won't go...

    1. Is the Bentley repair manual worth it? 2. Is there anything a first time owner of a used BMW should check first or make first priority? To the actual problem, 3. It is very hard to shift into and out of every gear. When you do the side to side neutral check and push it into the neutral spot...

    I drive a bmw 325i e46 with about 160000 miles. I kno is a lot of miles but the car has just been redone with new coils, sensors,vanos fluids etc and has no codes. When I'm driving, aside from a lack of speed gain, the car will get to high rpms and only shift if I let off the gas pedal and baby...

    Hey gang! My 2001 330ci with 215k has developed a nagging issue: I can feel that there is power going through the tranny when I've got the clutch at it's stop. For example, when I am at a light and about to proceed, I push the shifter (against some resistance) into gear and I can feel my diff...

    We are fixing up my son's new-to-him E46 and the LEDs do not move with the gear shift. P, 4, 3 are always lit. When we pulled the cover we found two very thin black plastic strips about 1.25 cm wide hanging from it. I realize that a new cover is likely needed, but has anyone seen this before...

    So I like to have fun everyonce in a wile and throw it into semi automatic, but one thing I dont like is that I'll be building up speed, not very rapidly, and ill be in third or fourth gear and be at about 3 or 4k it will just shift on its own up 6th gear. Like when i'm going 45 I dont want to...

    Hi, so long story short, I never owned a BMW so i don't know how high the shift lever is, so i took pictures and someone more experienced could tell me.. I'm asking because as you can see from the pictures the lever looks pretty beat up, and I replaced the shift knob 2x already, and they keep...

  16. DIY: Do It Yourself
    I know many of you might also have this problem... 2 of the 4 tabs on my OEM BMW shift knob broke off over time. The shift knob would still stay on the shift lever, but it was a bit loose, sometimes even coming off on hard/fast shifts. Today, I removed the shift knob, wrapped the bottom of...

    Counter intuitive I know.... but i've been looking into some longer shift knobs, such as the ones used on rally cars, club cars etc. I've heard that people like them for more spirited driving, but they can be cumbersome around town and such. I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with...
