hey all im new to the forum mostly because of this problem. i have a 1992 525i . problem is when im driving and i accelerate the gears shift too late and it jolts (mostly between 3000 and 4000 rpm) doesnt do it all the time just once and a while (every time i drive through) im thinking its a software problem. not sure. if it is how would i go about fixing this. and if you could be specific because im not the most mechanical guy there is. thanks
if your automatic transmission fluid (ATF) is black, then youll have some SERIOUS problems, i test drove a car with black ATF because it was never changed and it took its toll on the tranny, luckily my mechanic inspected the car before i bought it. i think atf is usually red or purple and pretty clear... someone correct me if im wrong
