Re: transmission defects in downshift
any manual transmission you shouldnt just go from 6th to 4th bc it is bad for
the transmission, if i am in 5th gear and i want to go into 3rd i always go
from 5th to 4th to 3rd as a preventative maintenance. If you have a defected
transmission you should be able to get it warranted by the bmw dealership you
bought if from though.

Your transmission has a filter screen ...take off the entire bottom transmission cover ,,go buy some new transmission fluid and a new screen .....when putting the cover back on make sure your bols are evenly torqued ..job finished
The absence of 3rd and 4th is imposed by the transmission computer as a precautionary measure. The system has detected fault and rather than risk doing any greater damage has provided a limp home service. It needs to have a transmission specialist look it over and read the error codes. How do your transmission fluid levels look?
hi, this could be your battery loosing voltage, check it with a volt meter to see if it reads between 12v - 12.5 v if it is low it might need replacing, you could also check your alternator to see if it is charging correctly you will find your car will be stuck in either 3rd or 4th gear ( limp home mode ) hope this helps please vote thanks
bad design flaw with the transmission kick down cable make sure you are in OD first but if you are then this cable is adjustable it is next to the throttle cable and tells the trans when to downshift only adjust very little increments as this can easily blow your tanni as you may already know this feeling
