Question about 1996 BMW 318
I am having trouble in intial driving of the car in D but when i put it D2 and press on gas it will start moving and then I can put it in D and it drives fine.Now after few months of driving like this a new voice is coming sounds like metal grinding but not a heavy noise Kindly tell me what might be the cause.And what needs to be done to fix the problem. Thanx
Start with replacing transmission fluid. They do recommednd Dextron III but usually syntetic oil 5w-30 does this job very well. But grinding sound maybe the sign of transmission problem
You can take it to a qualified shop (I dont know there you are), and had them run the codes for the transmission (OBD I)
