SOURCE: mitsibishi colt 97 stuck in 1st gear

Your link broke off. What might have happened is the car got stuck in 1st, and when you shifted to second, the link broke. Not too clued up on your car, but you probably need to drop the gearbox. On some cars you can take out the shifter without having to drop the box and still see if the link is broken. Good luck

SOURCE: BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard

hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

SOURCE: loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged

Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.

BMW 1 series 118d ,now on 4th clutch ,since 40,000 miles, 3 clutches fitted so far under warrenty, but now 51000 miles.Now juddering in the same way as before.also had new fly wheel and software updates....


You need to contact a BMW zone office and ask to speak to and meet area Zone rep. That's unacceptable, I'm surprised that the dealer let you have the car back after 3rd replacement. I used to work for BMW and it's either a MAJOR defect in parts and design or you or someone else who drives your car doesn't drive a standard transmission car properly. Ask BMW if there are any "open campaigns" on your car... this should get a serious reply

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1993 318IS BMW? When I try to start the car, even with the clutch all the way down, the car wants to go, so the clutch is not really having any effect.


Most likely it is a hydraulic clutch, hence not adjustable.
Most likely it needs a new clutch, it is 17 years old.
There could be an inspection access where an experienced BMW person could tell you if
your clutch plate surface is gone or if there is another failure.

Chances are they did not resurface your flywheel OR replace the pilot bearing.

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
