1998 BMW 328 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 178000 miles
I have a 1998 BMW 328i with an auto transmission. I recently purchased this car at an auction and vehicle was previously abandoned. I just had a key made and started it up for the first time and it ran rough and was blowing white smoke. I ran head gasket tests and the car passed them all. So then I thought bad gas and replaced gas in the tank with fresh and now engine runs smooth however still blowing white smoke and now the transmission does not always want to engage into gear and sometimes disengages while driving. White smoke smells like burning trans fluid so I am thinking the vacuum line on trans is pulling fluid into engine causing smoke and loss of fluid is causing shift problems. Anyone with bmw experience or that has had a similar issue with any ideas or suggestions would be great. Thank you
have the same problem?
