1996 BMW 328i Q&A
1996 BMW 328i Question: automatic transmission will not shift into 3rd gear.
i have a 1996 bmw 328i convertible. yesterday without warning the car would no longer go into 3rd gear. when it came time for the car to shift into 3rd it would simply rev up as if it were in neutral. does anyone know what could cause this problem? and if so what would be my best and most affordable repair option? thanks a ton. - matthewstaggs
It could be a control, a valve body problem or an internal transmission problem. I'd strongly suggest to find a good BMW specialty shop, they should be able to diagnose it for you. Zee - ZeeTech
In all honesty - from my point of view, you can really screw up a BMW even if you're a good tech who has not learned the specific needs of a BMW... - DaveJHM
