NewB with bimzimmer transmission problem, pls hlp
Dear Sirs of great knowhow,
I'm british but currently reside in Sacramento and just privatly purchased a dope looking 95' 325is, 115,xxx on the clock, Automatic transmisson.
I am used to driving manual shift and this is the first car i've driven with auto transmisson. I have been driving it for a few days now but have noticed a problem...
When shifting gently from N,R or P into D, and accelerate the car changes gears too early and JOLTS when its shifting up the gears (the kind of jolt you would get if you were driving manual and taking your foot off of the clutch too quickly.
When decelerating, the bimzimmer does the same and the revs get very low as it stands idle in what I would presume to be 2nd gear (so low that any manual car I've driven would stall)
NOTE: this problem does not occure if i change for N,R or P into D with a fast harder movement of the hand.
I thought this was casued by transmisson fluid so i've ordered a new filter kit etc... but the more i think about it the more it leads me to believe its some kind of electrical connection in the shifter maybe.
Does anyone else have any experience with this kind of problem and if so I would love and very much appreciate your input because this is driving me "nuts" (no preverbial pun intended)
