Do a transmission fluid change. this could help. Next would be having the 1/2 solenoid replaced.( have the codes checked). Could be the EPC solenoid.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: BMW 323i auto e36 coupe loss of power whilst driving

I've a similar problem on another make of car, the problem was a blocked silencer. You can check this by putting your hand close to the exhaust when the car is idling, you'll notice very poor air blowing against your hand. Power seems to be restored when you stop the car for a few minutes because the fumes that have built up inside the exhaust clears away. You start driving again, and the build up starts, when it becomes too much then power loss happens.

Hopes this helps

I've been told the planetary gear is going out on my BMW


could have been trans fluid you saw on the floor years ago,,,if its manual trans there is no dipstick,,,maybe this one just is unlucky,not all cars even of the same modeland year perform the same,,everything is the same but diffrent,,,why dont you go get the trans fluid changed and see how much fluid comes out and if any metal comes ouot in the fluid,,,,then change it and see howit is,,other than that start pricing a new or used trans,,probably cheaper then tearing the old one down and fixing it

Location of oil filter on BMW 323i coupe '99 reg and how to fit new cartridge


Both E36 and E46 models have oil filter under the hood, towards the front of the block. You will need a special socket to remove the oil filter cap and once it's out, can replace the filter. Make sure to replace the gasket on oil filter cap, it should come in oil filter kit you bought.

I have a E36 328i *** import. When cold the shift from 1st to 2nd is extreamly rough. After a few km's (possibly when the trans warms up) the shifting is perfect. The problem only occurs between 1st &...


I had the same problem with my car it is not a major problem your car probably has high mileage, You can replace your torque converter replaced but that will be expensive, The price to fix it completely outweigh's the problem.

What I suggest and works for me is while the trans is still cold just anticipate the shift from 1st to 2nd and just before the change occurs eas of the accelerator and then when the car has changed from 1st to 2nd just accelerate again.
