Thank you for replying, i just got a mechanic to change the fluid but problem still there. Would what you suggested be very expensive to do? ie sticking or broken valve springs.
Its a march 2001 rover 75 cdt 2.0 diesel auto by the way.

If the car is grinding when going into reverse, you need to have the clutch bled or repaired.

If it goes into reverse with out grinding, I am sorry to tell you your problem is internal to the gearbox. Bad or damaged Syncro

Good luck

Any type of fluid leak is not normal. Especially engine oil.

Hello,

The safest way for you to know which gearbox fits your car (second hand) you first have to go to a parts shop with your VIN and get the code and the model for your gearbox.

Don't just rely on car year and engine power.

Hope this helps

Hello, My 1994 BMW 740i is not shifting into 5th gear on automatic mode, it happens after it being driven for while and is warm, when cold it shifts gear till 5th gear normally, when it gets stuck on 4th...


IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:
http://www.nairaland.com/1364064/automatic-gearbox-problems
Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

Low fluid will not cause it to do that, If it pops out of gear you got a (Serios) Problem i hate to tell you, End on a (BMW) count on paying $2500 end up to have it (Rebuilt) Thats what you get for buying a (Over) price toy.

I got a 1992 bmw 525i it only drive in 1frst gear


I am assuming your vehicle is an automatic

if so...can you get the vehicle to shift manually?

when was the last time the trans was flushed?

if you do not know, do this first before seeking assistance from a trans shop

Change automatic transmission fluid and filter first, sometimes can solve this problem.

or chage c-90 oil for your gear box and at the same time, change the clutch plate.
