Hi, i had bought my E46 quite sometime now and from that time itself it had a issue with transmission. Each gear change especially down changes will feel like a hammer blow. Now the problem is its in limp mode and i got only 4th gear for drive. i checked the codes. Codes are

31 _ EGS: symptom gear monitoring
38 _ EGS: symptom GLUE
36 _ EGS: gear 4 monitoring (P0734)
41 _ EGS: gear 4 monitoring (limp home program)

So for a try, i did erased the code and got all gears back. But after running couple of miles, limp mode activated again.

I did try to refer many articles to figure out the issue but got confused as if i'm reading the right one.

Could someone help me how to solve this problem.

Much appreciate.. thanks

Yes... did the same... replaced the gearbox itself. Got one with one week warranty from japan. Now my bimmer clocked 5000 kms after replacement and no codes poped up. Thanks payno
