2391[bmw e28] Engine Surge
- May 13, 2004Just sending this on:
I cant post to the group from this address but can you tell him that if
he is checking the auto fluid to do it when it is warm, also to make
sure it isnt black. Am pretty sure even the older auto beemers use the
purple stuff sililar to Dexon so it should be a reddish purple colour...
Black would indicate worn out fluid...

I guess this must be a gearbox problem, rather than engine. If it were a
manual, I would suggest clutch slip, but the e's are all auto, aren't
they? Have you checked the condition and level of the ATF?
