735i Automatic HP22,
After sitting in traffic seems like my tranny acts up
and starts up in 3rd gear. it only happens when car is idling for a very long time and tranny gets very hot.
I usally have to let it cool down and then all the gears work fine. I've already replaced tranny and just recently it started doing it again. could this be a computer prob.??

Hey guys I really appreciate the advise.
unfortunately the warranty has ran out it was a rebuilt one. so basically I should clean out the lines and brush out the connector inside the one that says M/S right?
and hopefully that will take care of it???
I will try that and let you guys know.:)
