The vibration is caused by worn driveshaft parts. The BMW driveshaft is flexible and has a rubber universal joint called a Guibo and a center support bearing that must be replaced when worn or old. The parts are about $100 (60 for the universal joint and about 35 for the support if you buy them from autopartswarehouse.com )and the labor is about $250 at a good independent repair shop.

SOURCE: Car not shifting into second gear

If the car is grinding when going into reverse, you need to have the clutch bled or repaired.

If it goes into reverse with out grinding, I am sorry to tell you your problem is internal to the gearbox. Bad or damaged Syncro

Good luck

poping out of gear is caused by transmission internal wear, it can be the shift rails or other trans parts like bearings and engagement dogs on drums.

The first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level as some of your symptoms are classic for low fluid levels.

My 1995 bmw 740il wont shift into manual drive. im not sure what gear cars in but the trans isnt shifting. both of the cables to the throttle is broken i discovered could that be the problem and what


Service the transmission for the shifting issue. However going from auto to manual is an electrical switch. Car wont shift till car is at high enough rpm level.

Transmission snapping when shifting gears( when changes gears)


Could be a problem with the throttle position sensor. It's clearly an electrical issue. Besides the noise, how does the transmission shift? Is it smooth, or does it slam into each gear, or does it seem unusually soft. Shifts should be firm but smooth.

Low fluid will not cause it to do that, If it pops out of gear you got a (Serios) Problem i hate to tell you, End on a (BMW) count on paying $2500 end up to have it (Rebuilt) Thats what you get for buying a (Over) price toy.

My transmission shift very hard. The drive shaft had to be changed when I bought the car. My car is a 1990 BMW 525i


Sounds like you have problems with a part called the valve body inside the transmission or other hydraulic control problems, i suspect you will need to overhaul the transmission to cure this.

Hesitation / missing / car shakes


Hello;
The problem is most likely break down of the spark plug wires. The demands on the spark during acceleration and load destroy the wires as they age. I would start there. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
