    So I`ve got a 320i Touring from 2001 with an automatic gearbox (I believe from ZF) and apart from this one problem everything`s running perfectly fine. The gearbox is also shifting nice and smooth without any hickups, just like it should. Symptoms: When cruising at a steady speed the engine...

    My 330 developed a crazy trans leak out of the bell housing where you can see the sore converter, it gave me the torque converter code prior to failure, I was reading forums and came to the conclusion that obviously I need at least a pump seal Or the safer bet is probably replacing the whole...

    Hey guys, I’m new here but I need some help ! I’m having a loud low pitch almost wining sound coming from the engine bay. I’m thinking possible torque converter as i believe it’s been starting to fail ( high pitch wine in sync with shifting especially when cold). I can’t seem to figure out a way...

    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...

    Hi all. I've been having an ongoing transmission problem in my GM trans in in my 325i. I wanted to make a post as my problem has finally been solved, and it has been a total nightmare to try and discern in the past year. My car would have problems in 5th gear at low RPM (especially, but...

    This is a follow up to my previous thread "Moaning at Freeway Speed". Asking for a little advice from my fellow fanatics. Been trying to chase down the rumble strip sound coming out of my car. I've always said that I thought it was in the rear end, and it only happens at 68 miles per hour and...

    The previous owner of my 04 325Xi had the automatic transmission fluid changed out by a local (non-bmw) shop. I just noticed when the weather got cold that the car rumbles at stop and in drivee. When the car is in neutral, there is no rumble. Its more like a shaking, car needs to go rumble...

    I have a strange issue, my torque converter has been locking up very early, at about 25mph. I really notice this when I am turning at an intersection and accelerate afterwards. I have been doing so searching and seems like most people complain about their not locking up, but mine is locking up...
