I just brought my car (1997 318ic) into the dealership to have my heater control looked at because it was not responding, and of course they came back to me with a laundry list of things that need to be fixed. One of the problems was that my transmission mounts collapsed and I need to replace them along with the shifter seal, real trany seal and the guibo.

I am going to try to fix the heater control myself based on a fix that someone had posted, but I'm not sure how difficult it is to replace the trany mounts and seals. I'm at a point were I can not afford to have the dealership make these repairs, but I don't want to get rid of the car.

I don't have much experience working on cars, but I am very mechanically inclined and I do catch on very fast. Any advise on this would be greatly appreciated.

I dunno about tranny seals, but the guibo and tranny mounts are simple.

Check out www.pelicanparts.com for DIYs. You might have to deal with a leaky tranny for awhile.
