Every car needs a heating engine time specially when its cold, I recomend like about 5 to 10 minutes after you start engine and before you change from P to D. If you try to start the engine first time in the morning, it's cold outside and you immediately go on run you are going to have this trouble every time. Every engine has it's operational standard temperature a 5 to 10 minutes working engine, car stopped, may guaranty this standard temperature and optimal function conditions, and also keeps a longer life of your car.

Good luck

My 2003 x5 bmw 4.6is, makes a knocking noise in the Engine upon stating it up, but usually goes away after a few seconds.


Sounds like excess bearing clearance, when the engine sits overnight the oil between the bearings and the crankshaft is able to run back into the oil pan. When you first start it up it takes a few seconds for the oil pump to fill the spaces back up and you get some clatter.

I have a 2000 BMW 528, 140,000 miles. On cold mornings my car turns off when I try to warm it up. It starts without any problem. After approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute, the RPM gauge starts to go...


Could be the VANOS Seals. You can buy them for 60.00 and it takes about 5 hours to do (but will save you a lot of money). Follow the steps at this site and you're good to go: http://www.beisansystems.com/

Recently had the transmission on my 1998 accord rebuilt. Now, in the morning, it shifts hard into second and slips into third for about 5 to 8 minutes and then it shifts normally for the rest of the day....


hmm.. well a cold shift issue ....remember heat expands all things so most likley there was an error with your repair i would take it back to who serviced it asap before your warranty runs out....good luck

2003 CHRYSLER 300M SPECAIL REPLACED VALVE BODY AND SOLENOID PACK IN TRANSMISSION WHEN CAR IS COLD IT DOWN SHIFTS PROPERLY WHEN DRIVING FOR A WHILE SECOND TO FISRT SHIFT IS HARD


Needs to relearn shift stratagies. May need scan tool help If trans shop did work take it back. Don't forget to use the right fluid. Even trans shops don't care.

2003 bmw 325i keys does not unlock and the door wont open how do i find a central locking system if im completely locked out?


insert the key into the drivers side or passender side front door, twist the key and pull open on the handle at the same time and the door will open. It might take a few times to get it, but this does work, source BMW AG Munich.

Transmission slow to go into first gear unless auto is warmed up


change fluid & filter. no dipstick, sealed tranny. can remove both pans from underneath to access filter.

It is a GM 4L30E trans. used on Isuzu Rodeo and Cadillac Catera. BMW, in their inifinite wisdom, markets it as lifetime fluid. The second biggest bunch of **** advertising that ever was. Heat and friction will wear out ANY fluid!

BTW, it will delay shifting into highest gear when cold. this is normal

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.
