    94 e36 V6 WITH 98 TRANNY w/PROBLEMS----NOT SHIFTING PROPERLY

    I have a 94 325ic 6cyl and I installed a working tranny from my sons wrecked 98 328ic and the car drove perfectly fine for over a month every single day. then all of a sudden it would not shift properly. It seems to be in limp mode. It would miss 1st and 2nd. I changed the fluid and filter but still not change. Did I maybe do something wrong? Any help would be great. I haven't been able to drive the car in over a year. I've owned my 94 vert since 1994 and I love the car.

    Hi,

    You'll need to ask and search the E36 section to see which gearboxes are correct/compatible with your car. It's not possible to tell on this initial thread if you've done something wrong either as no one can see your car or what you did.

    This is the car audio section and so the wrong place for this question

    Good luck!

    Cheers, Dennis!

    Also, BMW doesn’t build V6 engines. The car is in limp mode. Scan the engine computer (DME) and the transmission computer (EGS) for codes.
