If you shifted and dropped the clutch while getting into the gas real hard it may have been the clutch slipping. Our cars have a clutch delay that will do strange things sometimes. It happened to me on a shift from 1st to 2nd while I was playing around. The revs went from 4k to redline without the speedo moving or the tires burning out.

From what I understand it kind of acts like a damper so if you just drop the clutch it will feather the clutch just a little bit instead of just letting it drop.

You could have mis-shifted. The BMW transmission mounts for E36 are notoriuously soft and under a heavy load, the transmission will torque, but the gear shift notches will not. So, when you upshift, you can moneyshift and blow some stuff up even though you put it in the correct gear notch. Not by any fault of yours, you can shift it into the correct gear, but the transmission is torqueing so it dosn't quite match up anymore.

Invest in some aftermarket urathane transmission mounts if it's mis-shifting and the clutch wasn't slipping.

I dunno but seeing as they support the transmission, I don't think it's a really fun job :P

You'd probably want to change the guibo while your at it I guess...

The tranny bushings are very easy to change. But then again, it all depends on your skill level. Some people can't change their own oil.

All you do is jack up the car, put it on jack stands. Then use the jack to support the tranny. Unbolt the tranny brace from both sides (4 bolts). Undo the nuts from the stock tranny mounts which are bolted to the tranny (2 bolts). Once that's done, the tranny brace attached to the mounts should drop down. You now have the tranny brace out of the car. Remove the tranny mounts and install the new ones. They are held on by bolts. Torque the new tranny mounts properly (otherwise you'll get vibrations) and reinstall. Make sure to torque all the bolts and bushings properly before you put load on them.

As always bry you are a god!

Do you have to press these seals into the mounts or melt the old ones out? Or are they nice and simple and are easy to get out?
