I have just acquired a '94 525i with 117k on it (auto trans). Recently, it started the machine up and found a lot of racket coming from the tranny in park and in neutral. Also, when shifting in to gear, it seems to "slam" into gear. other than that, it seems to run fine on the road.

any suggestions on what it may be?

Sounds like the pump inside your tranny is full of clutch pack material from a failing transmission. Sorry.
