My 2002 330xi has a slipping transmission. A light came on inside the
gear selection display on the dash (a large round gear with an
exclamation point inside the circle) ......not a good thing, I'm sure.
When I put it in drive, and give it gas it sounds like it's in
neutral. Car moves forward slowly with lots of rpm's, but not a lot of
forward progress. When it finally gets up to about 30 or 40mph seems
to work okay, but from a dead stop it moves ahead very slowly with
lots of rpm's. Feels like I'm driving a manual and letting the clutch
out very slowly (too slowly).
My owner's manual says it's a problem with the electronic transmission
control module (Page 67).
This one sounds expensive.
How much does a new transmission control module cost?
