e34 525i automatic gearbox problem
Hi, wonder if anyone can help me, have had some problems with my auto gearbox lately, first It wouldnt go into 4th gear, checked the gearbox fluid, found it was low and topped it up, the next day the gearbox worked fine, then the next day found that reversing needed high revs to reverse but all other gears fine, then the next day all was fine, today I got in the car and found the gearbox was giving the effect of a slipping clutch in forward gears but reverse fine, drove about 20 miles and the slipping clutch effect got worse and worse until I lost all drive in forward gears, but reverse fine.
The car has been recoverred and have no forward drive, but the thing I cant understand is why it has been so random, last night I parked it up fine, this morning it has this slipping clutch type problem, it has given this slipping clutch type effect before, but the next day was fine again, but have now lost all forward drive.
Also for a little while when I have put it in neutral it hasnt quite been it neutral, usually the revs pick up slightly in neutral, but lately it has still seemed as if it has been in gear slightly, but not enough to move if you know what I mean
I dont know if its the gearbox itself or the gearbox control module ecu ?
what do I do ? :-( any advice would be appreciated

Reason: forgot about the neutral thing
