SOURCE: converted my bmw e30 325i form auot to manuel

You need to jump the neutral safety switch there was a plug you disconnected in front of the shifter it has either 4 or 6 pins, take the plug you pulled out cut it off of the old gear selector and plug it back in and strip the wires back, the wires are color coded so like colors usually go together. with a 12 volt test light ground the clip to a proper ground, turn the key to the start position hold on start and check for voltage at the wires you previously stripped, let go of key and voltage should stop if voltage is constant you may be on the reverse light circuit, keep looking for voltage that goes on only when key turned to start, when you find it look for the corresponding color ie green /white to green/ black etc, wire the 2 together and starter should crank over, if not try another one. you will also need to wire the reverse light switch from the new trans to this connector. stay away from brown wires as they are grounds on bmw and never hook anything but brown to brown unless you are 100 percent certain it hooks up that way

The cable is probably broken. The cable goes to the transmission then goes through the firewall into the instrument panel.

How hard is it to change a cambelt on a bmw 320i e30?


You said E30, 320i correct? Your engine is a 2.0L 4 Cylinder engine? If so it does not have a timing belt, it has a chain, upper and lower gears and two chain slides. To change the timing chain and slide set is not easy if you have never done one, neither is the belt on the 6 cylinder engines. I recommend a reputable BMW shop.

E30 325i auto gearbox does not pull


There are two possibilies but first check that fluid level is proper. Either you have something wrong with the valves inside the tranny but it sounds more like you have burned up at least one of the clutch packs inside the auto tranny. Check your fluid level first and foremost. After that you are going to have to remove the tranny and pull it apart to find the problem. Prefferably bring it to someone who knows how to rebuild trannys.

Probably the alternator but I'd check it to be sure first. Many auto parts stores will check you whole charging system for free so call around.

thanks.

Starting problem


Try turning your key on and off 3 times before you start the car, if the engine starts more quickly it means your fuel delivery system is not holding pressure and when you stop your car the gas at the engine runs back to the tank. You might also see if the engine will start immediately if you turn it off then restart right away compared to starts in the morning.
