    you could try changing the transmission fluid. It might help. If not then change the TCC solenoid (means draining and refilling the trans fluid again). That may or may not work. If not, remove the valve body inside the trans pan and have it rebuilt. (means having the trans oil drained and refilled. Personally, instead of trying the job three times, I would just have the valve body rebuilt which takes care of all the problems and extends the life of the transmission another 100-150k miles (1500$ parts and labor) and save time and trouble, and about 3-400 $ in experimenting money.

My reverse lights don't work on my 2000 323CI 5 speed BMW when in gear


The fuse holder contains 10A fuse F27 which supplies power to the reversing light switch. When you shift into reverse with the engine running, the switch closes and the back up lights turn on. If the fuse is OK, you may have a defective switch

Auto gearbox gets stuck in reverse gear.


This is likely a sticking valve in the transmission valve body assembly, try adding a can of Lucas brand transmission additive.

I have a 318i 1992 bmw and i can get reverse when the engine is cold but when the engine is hot i have to rev the car to 2500 + revs before it will go into reverse. please advise


When was last time trans filter & fluid was changed? Should be done every 30k/3 years. Hopefully you didn't damage trans by "revving" I'd start there, and when you have trans pan off, inspect magnet in pan for metal shavings.

Transmission problem bmw x5 automatic


dear friend-the fact that your vehcl does not pick up speed tells me that it is slipping,there is a pressure lost in the gear box,you have to remove and rebuild as the clutches will be burnt.

Bmw e46 steptronic box, up to 1 minute delay in taking up foward drive in the morning from cold. perfect in reverse, fine for the rest of the day.


How old is the gearbox oil? In some cases, older oil (higher viscosity when old) will be too "thick" in colder weather and inhibit the synchro on your gears from slipping into 1st gear. The reason it only happens in 1st, is 'cause the shifting mechanism on the forward change is finer than that of the reverse change.

POSSIBLE Solution: Replace the gearbox oil with a lower viscosity ie. "thinner" oil.
