Go buy a bottle of Lucas transmission treatment, add it to the trans fluid, if this does not help with in a few hours of driving, your secondary is going bad.

Thanks. At first it had a slippery sounds and a griddling sounds as i put my gears. then from gear 1 -2, it would always slip if i put more acceleration. BMW 319i 2000 Automatic.


You my son are going to be spending loads of cash. Your auto box has probably several problems and to continue to try and use it like this is akin to throwing money out of the window. You need an auto box specialist and about 1500 euros

Hi I have a 1994 318i BMW Automatic, there sims 2 be problem with shifting from 3 rd to 4 th gear and slipping with that, but if I put it in manual mode than I lose a 4 th gear all 2gether, and the


Hi there.
Well because its a auto box you could have a band or pump problem which is in the gear box and is bathed in auto matic fluid oil and that could be your problem as the bands do wear down fast on a lot of cars and BMW with there power that could be you.
So take it to a auto box people and get it checked out.

I have an Infiniti 2005 G35 with 102,000 miles and the trans was slipping. Trans rebult but light comes on after 20k. Infiniti hot line is no help. Car has been in shop 3 weeks with no solution.


any lights on on the dash? if trans slipping either internal problem or slim chance electrical failure. which gear slips or is it all the time? if only one gear or at times failure in the clutch assy. if all the time indicates low working pressure, maybe bad EPC.

Transmission is sticking in second and third gear, im pretty sure this isnt a slip, and im pretty sure that it doesnt need to be rebuilt, but i wanted another opinion


i bet your wrong too, if its not a blocked filter in the box i would say the seals are leaky and thats why it wont shift up or down gear,,there is a seal swell type of auto box oil you can get you just tip it into the gear box filler pipe and let it do its job if its going to work it will in a fuw miles of running

Just got a 1998 bmw e46 318i se auto. Auto warning light was coming on frequent, and going into protection mode. Took to bmw dealer, who run tests, and filled with gear box fluid. Problem still occurs, but...


if the transmission was low on fluid you may have worn some parts,take this to a shop that specializes in BMW transmissions,this is not for the local transmission guy,special tools needed to test the transmission,may have to be re-programed

BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard


hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

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

Auto Transmission problem


hi do the simple bits first check the fliud level in the box see if its a clear redish colour if any other colour you have a box problem second when was the last time you chaged the boxes oil and filter a blocked filter will cause your problem then the box itself first clutch could be slipping put the box in first gear chock your wheels up put the handbrake on put your foot on the brake pedal start the engine and rev with your other foot and see when the car stalls it should be around 2500 and 3000 revs if its higher than this the clutch is slipping on that gear after this you will need to take it for pressure testing yates210456
