Hello everyone i have a few questions that you guys might know about. first , as you can see im new and been reading your topics alot very good stuff. So anyway i just bought a 1992 535i with 133k mi auto. when i first bought it the tranny felt weird like it was kicking into gear but stupid me i bought it anyway. Now I think i got a big problem cause its doing something differnt then when i bought it .Now when i take off its fine till i get to second gear when it revs to about 4 or 5 then shifts and on the highway at 70 MPH im reving close to 3000 RPM.Also if I try to Hit passing gear it will just hit the rev limiter and wont catch the gear. I know some pepole get the TRANS PROG. light on the LED display but i never got that so now im not sure what to do some guys say replace the GEAR SELECTOR SWITCH some guys say replace the tranny?
