    We took my brothers 2003 BMW 325i automatic to an indie shop a few years back and they alerted us they couldn't communicate with the transmission.

    Hey all, Last October I picked up a used 2003 330i to convert into a track build and have been doing most of the standard preventative track maintenance this winter. One of these items is the shift pin/detent replacement since this car had intermittent 5th gear lean. 5th and reverse went by...

    Hi all, I have a 2004 E46 convertible with the GM transmission. We have been tracking down a tranny fluid leak and it appears to be coming from the connection between the tranny Oil Cooler and the hose that goes to the Transmission. There are O-Rings in there that are likely the source of...
