    Hello, I have an e46 BMW 320i 2002 with an automatic ZF Transmission. I noticed the tranny had a leak and took it to an auto garage. The plastic part in the attached images was found to be broken. What's its name?

    I have an 2000 323i that was having some transmission issues. Its the GM auto. It had been having trouble shifting sometimes and the fault light would come on. I did the transmission service with Redline D4, seemed to shift better for a while but the problem came back 100 miles or so later and...

    So my 01 330i won't shift out of first gear and it'll go up to about 20mph and then it'll stop and hesitate to go again and then when it goes it'll go back up to around 20 and it'll basically like down shift and jerk you forward as it drops speed I ran the codes and the codes that came back were...

    Wife's '01 325i is pushing 183K on the odometer. I've done the usual known issue fixes like coolant/thermo neck, cam position sensor, window lift motors, replaced exterior bulbs many times (although the grounding mod seems to be helping). I had a ATF drain and fill done at 100K miles and...

    This is one way to do it, make sure you use a pressure regulator as I have and DO NOT EXCEED the tanks maximum psi. I actually embedded the pump handle in the shop ceiling insulation once while working on a brake system, it recently fell down and I was able to glue it back together. Never found...

    Hey guys, I am about to pull through with a clutch diy, and I already have my valeo single mass flywheel. Upon fixing my coolant leaks, I decided to look at my transmission bolts to see if I can get them off with the manifold removed and it looks like I can. At least the very top one. Upon...

    Hello all. I think (pretty sure, it's the automatic/ with semi manual option) I have a ZF transmission, and today it threw a code and put me in limp home mode. :banghead: It has only happened this once, and never slips, shifts hard or acts funny at all!!!! I was stopped in traffic, and heard a...

    I have a 2000 323i with the infamous "no reverse".....can the BMW GM transmission be swapped for the ZF transmission? GM Transmission came out of a 2000 323i.

    Greetings all! TL;DR - came to shop with no reverse, replaced the drum ONLY, now has several codes and goes into limp after trying for 3rd gear. Also replaced a rectangular section sealing ring with silicon because my boss and the customer have less knowledge than money they're willing to...

    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...

    quick Q, I have a ZF 5 speed that is out of the car, (nothing hooked up to it except the shifter) and I was wondering if I should be able to shift it into reverse. I can feel all 5 gears but it wont engage reverse. It feels like something is blocking me from moving it all the way to the left...
