1997 BMW 328is Base 6Cyl2.8L - Transmissions & Drivetrains
Syncros or Clutch? Look at the description please. Delayed engage into 3rd gear
I am feeling what is best described as slippage or delayed engage when I shift into 3rd gear and release the clutch when accelerating. There are 2 things happening. The clutch pedal grabs into 3rd gear higher on the pedal than other gears. Also, when I am attempting to bring the car up to highway speeds, the car feels that it is still engaging into the 3rd gear after I have taken my foot off the clutch pedal. Other gears do engage firmly without hesitation. I also do have a slow front shaft seal trans leak, so occasionally have to top off the trans fluid which I can/have done myself.
