  1. Transmission Fluid Intermittent Leaking

    General E46 Forum
    I still love my 2000 323i (123K miles), but the transmission warning light has come on about 1 out of 10 times that I drive it. Usually when I restart the car the transmission light is out and stays out. I got an unpleasant surprise for Christmas when I noticed the transmission was slipping...

    General E46 Forum

    General E46 Forum
    Howdy y'all, I really hate having to make this my first post but so upset. I bought my 325 just before going on deployment and there were no issues what so ever. I get back to my baby and now I am having transmissions issues. Oddly enough my reverse works unlike what I have read a lot of owners...
  7. Won't go into gear???

    General E46 Forum
    The Car: Manual 2001 330ci So I was driving home tonight, stopped at a stop sign, and all of the sudden the car wouldn't go into gear. I could flop the shifter all around and none of the gears would grab. I called up my dad for some quick advice and he thinks it might be a broken linkage. I'm...
