Did your car also delay when going into drive because mine is fine going into drive it is only reverse.
I was doing some research and I found that some people say that their car delays into reverse when their linkage is loose. Also found another site that said some transmissions delay reverse on purpose to prevent jerking from drive to reverse, but my car delays a good 3 seconds making it even more dangerous and jerky on a hill. Does anyone elses E36 automatic transmission delay into reverse or is it just mine.
There is a reverse "sensor" it's the same sensor that indicates to your backup lights to switch on
