Question about Transmission & Drivetrain for BMW 318
Just replaced my gear box of a 2001 bmw 318i E46 with an automatic transmission.When the transmission first selects a gear from a start position the vehicle jerks violently but moves ok thereafter. However, after a little while the tranmission tell tale sign comes on and the car acceleration becomes less responsive as one feels some resisitance from the accelerator peddle, particularly when i want to move again after slowing down at an intersection.
Did you get this fixed as im have the same thing happen to me

Transmission is detecting a fault in either a sensor or a control actuator and it is defaulting to a "limp home mode" so it can still be driven without destroying the transmission.
Check all the wiring, grounds, and fluid level, and be sure the proper fluid was used.
They might have to warranty that transmission. Or Re-Flash the Computer to run it properly.
