This is my first posting. I have a 1996 328i which is in extremely good condition however it has a lot of miles on it. The transmission just started slipping after returning from a 100 mile drive from Seattle the previous evening. There was no indication of a problem prior to the issue I am now experiencing. The Transmission service was quite some time ago. As these are sealed transmissions, there is no easy way to check the level or condition of the fluids.
The car goes into reverse, but drive slips, catches, and slips again. Very odd.
Anyone with previous experience on this sort of issue and what the cause may be, send me your thoughts on the possible remedy. Hopefully it is not new transmission replacement solution.
