I have a 1993 BMW 318 is, with about 150000 miles on it. It drives well,
transmission shifts very well, as far as I can tell. But sometimes, on
start-up the transmission control light comes on and the vehicle can't be
driven like this. It goes into limp mode and doesn't shift from 3rd.
I try to start a couple times and the light goes out. Then you can drive it
I had the mechanic read the code and he said theres a leak in the tranny and
it must be replaced, to the tune of about $2000.
Whats weird is it only happens on start-up, and infrequently. Its never
happened while driving...
Any advice about this would be appreciated...
