    Hey everyone, so as the title states, up until just yesterday, car was running fine, no issues. Yesterday I ended up getting an EML light which would also go into limp mode. This seems to have been fixed by removing the idle control valve and cleaning it out, code was P1500. After this, the EML...

    First post on this site, and I'm sure 100 people have posted this exact same thing (so my apologies in advance), but i find the search function in all forums frustrating. Even if someone can link me to good threads i'll be happy :) Brought my 2000 323i (175k km)(manual tranny) to about 3...

    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, I had the delayed cold start issue when shifting into drive at around 100K. I had the fluid and filter changed and it went away. Now at around 120K I'm getting a grumble shifting from 1st to 2nd. Feels like it's slipping in 2nd. More noticeable under hard acceleration. Wondering if it could...

    Problem engaging all gears at high RPMs (approx. 3.5k and above), except when shifting TO 5th. Seems like second will engage below 4.5k; about the same with 4th. 5th will engage regardless of RPM or acceleration. Acceleration (pedal position) also appears to play a role. The more gas, the...

    Was searching around for different types of automatic shifter knobs and I came about these on Fleabay... What do you guys think? Link Here... I plan on doing a full interior glossy carbon fiber wrap on all the wood and part of the door handles, so these kind of caught my eye. I prefer...

    Everything was fine earlier. I got home shifted into park and noticed it was much heavier, then that my key wouldn't release from the ignition no matter how much I tried pushing it further into park. I looked under the plate and nothing is unplugged. Is it going out? I wanted a manual...

    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...

    Hello everyone, just wanted to post a quick question. My shifter vibrates occasionally when I shift into 2nd gear in my 1999 323i. This is the only gear it does it in. Should I get this checked out? Is it a serious problem? Something I can fix myself? Any feedback will help thank you.

    I have a 2001 330 ci convertible. Prior to today, I've had no issues with the automatic transmission (car has 133,000 miles). This afternoon, the car starts just fine and shifts into reverse, but will not shift into Drive. I'm at a loss here, as I haven't experienced this issue in the past...

    I have this transmission/TC problem....I think... I'll try to explain it the best I can. 2001 325i A/T When turning a corner at about 10-20mph, and then easing into throttle, the car does not shift down a gear, even if I give it 1/2 throttle. I'd say it down shifts if I give it 3/4 throttle...

    Hey everyone so here's my story. I drive a manual 2001 330ci, 88,000 miles. Two nights ago while highway driving, I noticed that shifting between 1st 2nd and 3rd gear felt very sticky and almost grindy. (4th and 5th gear felt fine). My shifter has always been very smooth with no problems...
