My '91 735i has a broken transmission. Drive through first does not
work - the transmission will only work in reverse. The ATF has a burnt
Does anyone know what what the problem could be? Can you give me a
rough estimate as to how much it would cost to fix?
Sounds like the front clutch pack burnt out.
Because of the labour involved, it's usual to do a complete overhaul when
this happens - it all has to be thoroughly cleaned including the torque
convertor which is sometimes cheaper to simply replace.

A rebuild if you pull it yourself will run you 700-1000. If you can do
the work yourself, about 300-400. If you take it to a shop and they do
everything, 2000+. Just estimates from my area (central Florida). You
could also get another tranny (if you can find a good one) and just
swap it out.
