I hate to state the obvious if you jacked up the car on the transmission pan and now it won't shift right. My bet is on something inside the transmission is probably bent or broken. Guessing the Transmission pan will need to be taken off and a check done to see what might be wrong inside... Sorry does not sound very good, but that is my guess. I hope it helps...

SOURCE: 1993 190e 2.6 transmission problem

I have a 93 MB 2.6 190E . went to junkyard, got same tranny, spent 500 bucks to replace. Drives fine. No metal shavings on mine either but changed tranny, ok.

SOURCE: Hello, I own a 93

The transmission is controlled by the Transmission Control Unit (TCU).

Throttle position, rpm, and speed are input parameters to the TCU. The TCU has a default set of shift patterns. These shift patterns change over time based on your specific vehicle setup and driving habbits.

The shift patterns are only slightly affected by driving habbits over many driving cycles. But, changing the relationship between the throttle position and the actual speed being reported by the speed sensor can have an immediate effect on shift patterns.

While your speedo may now be correct, the realtionship between rpm and thottle position has not been corrected. That would take a gear change in the differentials.

The TCU can be reset to an inital learn base line. When this is done, the TCU will instantly learn the dynamics of your setup.

Any shop with an advanced ODB scan tool can reset the the TCU. The dealer or a transmission shop would be preferable.

You really should change your differential gears as opposed to resetting the TCU

SOURCE: I have 1998 bmw 528i, the problem is when the ASC

Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the traction of the car if not fixed it can affect your rev limiter and slow performance

How do I take apart my rear door of my 1998 BMW


the motor isn't bad. it doesn't get enough use to go bad. The clip holding the cable that makes the window go up and down broke.
google: window regulator repair clip 1997 bmw 528i. 97's and 98's are similar. 99 they changed them. they all break. they all break in the same place! It's the clip. 25 bucks order a repair kit from the guy. it's the same work as buying a $150 new regulator that will break again anyway

Pulling an oil pan on 1998 grand am


The worst part will be either lifting the engine to the point that it clears obstructions, or to remove the obstructions, or both. Lifting the engine requires that you disconnect the motor mounts and who knows what else. Once everything is out of the way you can drop the pan. I hope this helps.
