Car is a 95 325i with an auto. Just over 105k miles total on the car and over 25k total on rebuilt engine. Took it to emissions today, which it failed and immediatey after leaving the car wouldn't shift out of first gear while in DRIVE. It shifts fine if it's in 3rd gear and what not though... it doesn't feel like it's in limp mode or anything as the power is there... While it was on the emissions machine, the car was acting funny having a hard time going and it seemed like it wanted to drive off the machine... I haven't ran codes or anything yet, if that'll even help but has anyone ever heard or seen this happening before?

yeah my friends 540 did this with its auto tranny, it turned out to be a module that needed to be replaced, he had to kick it into 3rd than back to drive for it to shift.

now i know you say it runs shitty but does it feel completely like its a transmission problem? or more than that... because sometimes those emmision guys forget to put the gas cap back on or just not put it on properly.

the power is there and it doesn't seem to run shitty.. it just won't shift when it's in overdrive and it won't go into overdrive...
