Automatic Transmission Gears Will Not Shift
I just bought a 1991 bmw 535i automatic the person who sold it to me said the torque convertor is what is most likely causing the problem and needs to be replaced i i called a junk yard who has it for 200 dollars i also called a bmw specialist shop they said they would have to rebuild it and the total cost of labor and everything would be $2,000 i called my local autozone and was told they have torque convertors for the bmws for $150 manufacture is dacco one of my family members knows about cars and offered to replace it does the torque convertor seem to be causing the problem ?
try driving slow. stay on 1st gear
