Transmission problem
1989 BMW 635 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles

I have a 89 BMWcsi. It was running great till last week. When I put it in drive, it starts out in 3rd gear. When I manually shift into first it still stays in 3rd. It has no problem with reverse.

Do you
have the same problem?

The 4-HP22EH transmissions can have electrical issues and to start with I would check fluid level and condition. At that mileage the history of maintenance is a concern. Also the issue you have might be electrical, checking the connections would be a step I would take, check the dash board indicator lights for proper operation and the connector at the transmission. Lets start with these items and let us know how it goes mate!
