Sound like you need to check transmission fluid, the fluid too low causing transmission slipping, thats why car have no power.trasmission gear box light warning fluid low.if been a long long time,change transmission fluid and filter.

My bmw 318i 2003 is not responding to the automatic gear liver. it doesnt move.


BMWs in the 3 Series and 5 Series that come with the 5-speed ZF transmission commonly experience problems with torque converter delamination. Drivers will notice signs of this problem when the car appears to shudder or misfire at around 40-50km/h.
This BMW transmission problem needs to be repaired as soon as the first signs are noticed. If you drive until the converter lining actually fails, it can destroy the entire pump assembly in the transmission. This will require a complete reconditioning of the automatic transmission.
BMW drivers are cautioned that it is better to spend a little now, rather than a lot later.
Apart from the problem with the torque converter delaminating, these 5-speed transmissions commonly suffer breakage of the D/G cylinder. If this breaks, the car loses reverse gear. This automatic transmission problem is another that requires a total transmission overhaul to repair.

My BMW 318i 2003 automatic transmission not responding to gear liver. what is wrong with my car?


the transmission warning light is an indication of a fault in the transmission which you apparently ignored. You were supposed to have that fault codes read immediately the light came on as that is when the repair will be at the cheapest. have the codes read now to determine what is wrong

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.

318i BMW 1993, Everytime I start driving sometimes after like 2-5mins the gear light comes on and the car loses power, its still goes but when i say pull up to a red light I have to floor it to get going....


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.
