Question about BMW 545

1 Answer

I have a bmw 540i 1995 and yesterday i backed my car about 200 feet and parked on driveway and today when i tryed to back out when i put in R nothing , doesnt go in reverse. only the engine is accelerating a little bit. i pushed it out and the rest of gears worked normal. i drove it a few miles with more reverse tryes but still nothing. the car has 243.xxx miles, i have the car from 130.xxx miles and i never changed the ATF so it may be original. tomorow i will check the atf level. Do you have any thoughts?

As you mentioned, you have not changed the ATF. This is more likely the issue here. It is very possible that the valves or lifter for reverse are stuck. I highly suggest having the transmission flushed, and having the filter (if equipped), and pan gasket (if equipped) changed.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Instrument cluster dead after Battery replaced


It is possible AAA worker connected the battery backwards for just a second and got a big spark. This can cause major issues, but sometimes just minor ones, such as blown fuses. Check every fuse for starters. There are also fusible links in the wiring which can be blown.

My truck stalled out while backing up an inclined driveway. I tried to keep accelerating and nothing happened. I put it in park and the gears grinded badly. I shut the car off, restarted and tried to put...


I've never seen a differential fail in that situation but having been in the business a long time I've learned that all things are possible...Exactly where is the oil leaking on the diff? I'd suggest you get back onto level ground and remove the rear cover on the diff and take a look at the gears. Possible that the spider gears in the center section have broken.
