In Reply to: 535i (1990) shifter jumps out of 1st gear. posted by Albrino on October 23, 2000 at 10:59:40:
This happened to me, with 3rd gear beign the first to experience the popping out of gear when enganged symptom.
I wound up replacing the transmission with a remanufactured unit from Jim Blanton.
I based my decision on the fact that I planned to keep the car for several more years.
I have a 1990 535i, 5 speed, for the last few weeks I have noticed that when I try to put the shifter in the 1st grear the shifter wont stay in (jumps out 50% of the time)
I live in Rome, and as you know we don't have "good" mechanics here.. lol.
would you please help.
