Someone Please HELP! 94 530i v8 trans problems

I have a 94 530i With a v8. When i start the car and put into drive it slips really bad after i finally get to 20mph it drives perfect. Just every time i stop 1st and 2nd is jacked up. every now and again it goes into "trans program" the local bmw shop wants 200 just to tell me whats wrong with it and i am pretty sure he thinks cause i have a bmw i have money. which is not the case. I also realize there is a computer for the tranny. What is going on with my ride? 190k perfect condition i mean perfect other than the tranny please help. 740-229-5034 cell My name is brian

I would say the clutch pack for 1st and 2nd is on its way out with 190k on the clock, you could try a fluid and filter change, but I would be leaning towards a replacement box or re-build.


I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
