You could have a faulty sensor or a loose connection to said sensor. your trans control module needs to be checked by a diagnostic scan tool at a shop there they can check the module and see if there is a fault in you drive train. i doubt it's an internal problem with the trans....please rate this....thanks

2007 bmw 318 i is running hot


have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks. have a flow test done on the radiator to check for blocked cores. Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks. If you have a viscous fan hub on the fan then replace it if the heating is indicated at stop lights and slow traffic. If automatic check that the transmission oil temperature is not overheating and putting that heat into the radiator from the oil cooler in the radiator tank

I have 2003 BMW 318i, my transmission light comes on and off while driving and when it's on the car would **** while slowing down.Lately I had the air filter changed the transmission light stayed


Definitely a trans problem

Seeing as how you have continued to
drive it, even 5 miles,when it wasn't working
correctly, as well as ignoring the fault code
light,I doubt that there will be a fix

Your most likely going to spend north of $3,000
for a reman trans

The air filter housing would have to be almost off
& you would have checked that before asking

If it were loose, it may upset the shift stratagy,as the
MAF Sensor may be part of that

But the slowing down,& slamming into different gears,
just one day of driving like that, you ruin the trans

Hi i just bught my bmw 318i se e46 a few days ago. now yesterday while i woz driving the first light on the dashboard came on, its orange n looks like an out of shape box a bit like engine shape. should i...


this is the check engine light does it come on then off? did it stay on? if this light is comming on any one of a hundred or more thing can cause it. from a loose gas cap to a sticking sensor. you might want to have it hooked to a computer to see what is causing it might be a minor problem like low washer fluid and it could be the start of a serious one. these lights remind you of scheduled maintinance,low fluids,oil changes ect depending on the manufacturer standards.i would check all of the fluids and if they are ok then get it checked better to be safe than sorry

You need to make sure you have a good drive belt and verify that the tension is working,if all seems normal then get the alternator or the wiring to it tested.

1992 auto 318i bmw judders at low revs


Hello there

If you drive an automatic and it starts to judder at low speeds than that means you transmission isn't down shifting as the speed is reduced. In the first instance you should get your transmission oil changed.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.
