I just got the car out of the shop yesterday. The 83 320I.
Two problems. Once of which didn't happen before I took it to the shop:
1. It takes forever to start when its cold. The mechanic even put a new cold start valve on it but it still cranks forever until it turns over.
2. I was driving it around this morning, and the shifter got really loose and moves up and down a lot. I looked underneath the shifter rubber and I saw that little ball bearing looking thing. It moves up and down. When I try to put it into gear, its very very hard and most of the time it just makes a loud grinding sound. 1st gear is the hardest and it grinds everytime and sometimes will land into reverse.
AHHHHH. I want to sell it. Anyhow, any ideas on what is up?

Well, not the clutch has no pressure...which could explain why its damn hard and grindy to get the car into gear. The car dies as soon as I put it into gear too.
