3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
My 2000 320i Tourer has around 105k on the clock. For some time now I've had a small issue with the gearbox.
At around a steady 45 MPH, the box continually changes gear & the revs between approx 1500 & 1800 RPM. This is accompanied by a "labouring" sound that seems to come from the rear of the car, like you might get running a manual at too low a speed for the gear selected. This only happens at a steady speed & is maybe more prone on a slight incline.
A local indy has suggested an oil change would cure it but I wondered if anyone else had experienced this before I part with my cash?
interesting post, never heard of this before. But then I am in a dark about most things, the sealed for life fantasy seems to live on despite all evidence to the contrary. Good luck with it matey, hope you really have cured it
