Question about 2000 BMW 3 Series

1 Answer

My year 2000 3 series barely goes into reverse. The forward gears seem OK, but once put into reverse there is a delay before it moves and a significant sluggishness.

2000 BMW 323i (auto/tip-tronix) will not reverse... forward works


hi, did the trans selector physically not go into the reverse position, or was there a long delay after you put the car in reverse. If there was just a long delay, I would check the transmisssion fluid level and condition first. Since you did not specify your mileage, I am assuminhg you have higher mileage since it is a 2000 my. The transmission in your car was possibly subject to programming updates that addressed internal pressure lost when first putting in reverse. Since you are just first experiencing an issue, I would not wait to have it looked at.
