Either you need a fluid flush and new filter or you have a bad solenoid on the tranny which isn't letting it shift properly

1998 Z3.. Manual Trans shudder under acceleration in 2nd gear as it nears 2000 rpms, then goes away as it approaches 2500 rpm's.. Any suggestions?.. Thanks


It could either be the flex disc or drive shaft center bearing. I had the same problem on my 98 Z3 and I replaced both and it took care of the problem.

Gear Box is not engaging in reverse


When was last trans fluid & filter change? (I'm assuming it's an auto. trans.) Trans fluid & filter should be changed every 30k or 3 years. I'd start there and have system flushed when you do the filter change.

I would get a second look at it before replacing the computer, the computer may just need a flashing which is a programing to tell it to shift correctly . i would have the dealer check it and it may be a recall and not cost anything,

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
