GEAR SHIFT NOT HAPENNING

1991 BMW 735

Transmission problem
1991 BMW 735 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 324444 miles

Sir,

The car is equipped with an auto gear box with E M S options for driving, on E position by default, the gear stays on first gear only, for the time being I have to drive it on M only at D position for the gear lever. Kindly help me diagnose the problem. Is it with the solenoid valves, if yes can they be repaired.

Regards

A stuck piston or broken spring in the shift body of the transmission is possibly the issue here.
