You can take it to a transmission shop and ask them to adjust the bands, but more than likely they will charge a small fortune and want to rebuild the transmission. Only other option is to try and get a good transmission from a wrecked car and swap the tranny's out.

My 1990 BMW 535i changed transmission from auto to manuel when i did a loud pinging sound,now dash says trans Program,slips in all drive gears but is fine in reverse. How do i and how much cost

needs attention from a transmission man/woman, if it is slipping the friction materials may have worn. Not sure of your particular box but this is not something you can fix. It is probably best to visit a good/recommended technician rather than BMW,they will charge an arm and a leg to investigate and rectify, a good local transmission specialist should save you loads of money.

Thanks. At first it had a slippery sounds and a griddling sounds as i put my gears. then from gear 1 -2, it would always slip if i put more acceleration. BMW 319i 2000 Automatic.

You my son are going to be spending loads of cash. Your auto box has probably several problems and to continue to try and use it like this is akin to throwing money out of the window. You need an auto box specialist and about 1500 euros

I drove 1994 BMW 740IL and the passenger side mirror usually will move down when i put my car on reverse so i can see the curb view, however it stop working just now when i get in my car to back out from a...

Make sure your mirror control switch is slid to the right. If the switch is in the left mirror position, it keeps the right mirror in the upward position when in reverse. When the switch is in right mirror position, it moves the right mirror in the downward position when in reverse. Hope this helps.
