I have a 1994 bmw 540i. Car had been garaged for 6 years, I replaced the fuel pump and injectors to get it to turn on. Now that we tried to run it its taking off in 3rd gear. The car has 96k miles. Want to know what might possible be wrong with it. Is it something major or something that will not put me in the poorhouse.

Do you
have the same problem?

Try replacing the transmission fluid and filter and see what happens if it continues -could be a shifting solenoid or a valve body problem

I agree with Ras, the issue might be something in the tranny or it could be software related.
