Transmission slip when coming to stop
I just bought a 2003 325i with 115K KM on it. It drives well just one problem with that.
When I accelerate; all the transmission shifting is smooth and quick without any problem. But when the car is coming to stop; the last shift from 2 to 1 ends up with a jerk. It only happens when the engine is cold; after some driving (5-10 mins) i could not feel it.
Does anyone has same issue or someone knows what the problem is?
Thanks in advance.
cud b a start to a faulty gearbox
They say its life time transmission fluid but its not! whats life time? when it fails due to poor depleted oil? I changed mine, filter & Castrol Dexron VI Synthetic and I also changed all the shift silinoids ( @ $130.00 for all 5 ) very easy to do whan you drop the pan.
Best thing I did, shifts up and down perfectly. will this fix your problem I do not know but it made a big difference in mine. I did it at 130,000 miles and it has 154,000 on it now and still runs great.
There is a electric silinoid that controls the down shift, they have very fine mesh screens which can impede fluid flow or just be worn and sticking when cold, I would start there if you can do this yourself its not a costly job.
