car was running fine until last week i turned the car on in the morning and did not want to run it was like the brakes were on all the time. one of my friends told me that it looked like the transmission oil filter was cloged. so we changed it and used the same oil because the car has 121,000 miles on it and never changed the transmission oil. what could be the problem do i need a new trans. or shuold i take it a bmw dealer. need info please.
thank you forgot to say its a 1993 325i auto

Do you get a trans light on? -it looks like a geared wheel. It may be in failsafe/limphome mode, which would stick it in 3rd gear (I believe it's third)

It could be any number of things. I can't say without seeing it and testing it. The dealer would be the best bet. They should be able to get a good idea fairly quickly.
