Read my thread from about a year ago.

Consider buying just the book first. Then decide. This trans is pretty simple mechanically, but you need space, be organized, etc.

Hello everyone!
noob so please don'=)t hate!!

I guess I'm also in need of some help with transmission issues that I have been encountering with my 2001 BMW 3.0i (62,000 miles).

I read what other issues people had, and well my symptoms don't match. trying to get a better understanding on whats going on, I don't want to be taken advantage of at our local Indy Shop. All the Help would be Greatly appreciated!

Car Specs:
2001
3.0i
Auto
62k

From a stop sign to stop sign, when hard acceleration then applying brakes quickly transmission clunks. Its very hard to describe, but it only happens when decelerating.
I do have some slipping when in reverse and on huge hills. I really never put both of the issues together but if someone believe both are related kindly let me know. thanks x fans!

Check your engine mounts, and trans mounts. Put car in drive, hold brake with one foot, pull up e-brake, hold brakes hard, other foot give it some nice throttle. Have someone else look at engine from side. If mounts are bad, engine will rock significantly, upon releasing the gas pedal, you should hear same clunk as engine comes down. Engine should be tight, no rocking when mounts are good. I'm not responsible if you run someone over when trying this. If brakes are firmly planted, it shouldn't go anywhere though. Maybe have your indy test this out.

Florin,

I am at Frankfurt Airport and can't check my records but from the top of my head, I bought the overhaul kit, the friction disk kit, the valve body kit, a A/B clutch radial bearing and the ouput bearing. Ofcourse you need a filter as well. I bought new oil lines to/from the cooler and new quad rings to and from the cooler.

Have your TC remanned. I bought one ready to go and returned mine but it was more expensive. Don't worry too much, it looks worse than it is. Good luck!

Actually I use Frankfurt only to go to the Netherlands. There are more flights then to Amsterdam. Downside is that is adds 2.5 hours to the drive home. Upside is: No speed limit!

I am going again later this week for a few days and next week I am in Toronto. Hopefully my last trip until the summer. Finally time for my construction project!

No dip stick. Search transmission level. Lots of info here.
