Hello, I'm Brandon - BMW Tech.

Did he changed the transmission oil or the engine oil?

These 325 are known to have transmission issue. esp. Torque converter problem.

hi,New expert here.I assume this is an automatic transmission - is that correct?What exactly happens when you try to put the vehicle into gear? Can you not move the shifter? Or, you move the shifter and nothing happens?Are forward and reverse the same?
