I'm gonna take a guess here which is the best I can do without actually driving the car myself. The first suspect is the thermistor inside the transmission that tells the car computer what the transmission oil temperature is. My clue for suspecting this is the fact that the transmission work OK until about the time that it should be reporting higher temperatures to the computer. It is not an expensive part, but it is probably not something that you want to try to test and replace yourself.

Hi there.
Well because its a auto box you could have a band or pump problem which is in the gear box and is bathed in auto matic fluid oil and that could be your problem as the bands do wear down fast on a lot of cars and BMW with there power that could be you.
So take it to a auto box people and get it checked out.

I have 2003 BMW 318i, my transmission light comes on and off while driving and when it's on the car would **** while slowing down.Lately I had the air filter changed the transmission light stayed


Definitely a trans problem

Seeing as how you have continued to
drive it, even 5 miles,when it wasn't working
correctly, as well as ignoring the fault code
light,I doubt that there will be a fix

Your most likely going to spend north of $3,000
for a reman trans

The air filter housing would have to be almost off
& you would have checked that before asking

If it were loose, it may upset the shift stratagy,as the
MAF Sensor may be part of that

But the slowing down,& slamming into different gears,
just one day of driving like that, you ruin the trans
