To start viewing messages,Planning on changing both the transmission and differential fluids but can I use a synthetic 75W90 gear lube for both. A BMW tech indicated that they use 80W90 (not so easy to find locally) at the shop. I have read that some newer BMW owners with manual transmissions are using Redline or Mobil 1 ATF instead of gear lube. What's the correct fluid for the manual transmission for my '85 e28. Thanks in advance.It will damage your synchros. The sulphur content in the hypoid formulation is not compatible with the brass synchros. Mobil 1 15W50 or ATF is fine.Note, however, that most any synthetic oil will exacerbate existing leaks.It definitely smoothed out the shifting and it never feels heavy when cold.There's a black background label with blue BMW labels on it and a part number. ???? Any guidance? Thanks, ScottDigital Point modules: Sphinx-based search. The fluid assists in the lubrication and heat disputation of the transmission, and even though it is in a closed environment, the fluid can become old and contaminated.

Complete advice for all components, such as the engine, gearbox (transaxle), brake system, power steering system and cooling system. This is true of our 265 build as well. In general, the BMW Getrag transmissions are quite strong but they have had two areas where improvements are possible. In solving these two problems we have produced a very strong, long lasting transmission. This allows our transmissions to be shifted more aggressively without the fear of premature synchronizer failure which has the effect of making the transmission miserable to shift. We’ve come to respect tapered roller bearings as the absolute best bearings to complement our Ultimate Transmission philosophy. When a lay-shaft bearing fails, it can become quite serious. The bearing can come apart and quickly destroy the transmission. Even two gearboxes of the same year and model can be quite different, not only with respect to how they shift but also as to the actual dimensions of their parts.At Metric Mechanic, we assemble and shim each transmission according to the exact dimensions of the parts actually involved.Aside from the fact that we are not a parts seller, parts alone will not result in a Metric Mechanic 265 rebuild. We have devised an entire sequence of machining steps that we have used since the 1980s and these, we hold “close to our vest”. Just out of warranty, we started started getting 280 transmissions in for rebuilding. Most of the same tools and methods we had developed to build the earlier 265 Getrag applied to the 280. By this time, we had established a good reputation and had a better warranty than BMW.

To fix these problems, we made brass shift forks to replace the problematic stock aluminum shift forks and we made tooth type synchronizers to replace the stock Moly synchronizers. The input shaft bearing along with 4th gear would be burned up and the transmission would be junk (not rebuildable). Often, the 280 Getrag was run out oil, because the oil fill plug put the oil level too low in the transmission and the Neoprene output shaft seal tended to leak. We fixed the leak by going with a Viton output shaft seal, that we use in all of our Ultimate transmissions. The oil level being too low in the transmission due to the oil fill plug location, takes a bit of explaining: The 280 Getrag uses the front and rear case sections from a 260 Getrag with an intermediate case sandwiched in the middle. The oil fill plug instead of being in front case section, as it is in a 260, is located in the intermediate case and sits lower. So, the oil level sits slightly lower in a 280 than it does in a 260 Getrag. This reduces the amount of oil that can be splash fed to the gears and bearings, making it more prone to failure when combined with a leaking output shaft seal. A transmission rebuild is only as good as the core. In other words, you can’t turn a loud burned up 280 into a quiet perfect transmission. Also, it was just not worth it to make custom brass shift forks and tooth type synchronizers for such a limited transmission. At this point we stopped building the Getrag 280 Transmission. Alias: “280 GET-TRASH”. We looked at converting to a 265 Getrag. The internals of the Getrag 280 and 265 are very similar. During the rebuild of the 265 transmission, the output shaft was shortened, so the driveshaft wouldn’t need to be cut. We developed and fabricated parts to do the conversion. In the end, we made a conversion from the stock 280 to a MM Ultimate Getrag 265 that was a straight forward swap.

What makes this conversion so good is that the 265 has a history for being reliable, gets rid of all the problems found in the 280, and they’re available. The Getrag 280 can best be described as a hybrid of a Getrag 260 and 265 transmission. The front and back transmission case sections come from a later 260. Like the 260, the shift forks are aluminum and wear out prematurely. Also, like the late 260, the teeth on the operating sleeve and gear engagement teeth on 2nd and 3rd gear are asymmetrical. The gear set layout looks similar to a 265 Getrag. BMW no longer sells the 280 Getrag. Looking at the transmission’s history, it looks like BMW also, had a high regard for the 265 Getrag. In 1982 the BMW 325e had the Getrag 260 and the following year all BMW 6 cylinder models got the 260 up until 1985. These early 260 transmissions were a bit problematic. All, 1986 models got a revised 260 Getrag. BMW going back to the Getrag 265 at two later dates, indicates they believed in the 265. The operating sleeves have symmetrical teeth, along with the gear engagement teeth. Because the 265 was used in more mainstream models, it’s much easier to find rebuildable transmission cores. They are not to be confused with a conventional rebuild. We have developed the following tools; Front case puller, rear case puller, a 20 ton pulling fixture to remove 5th gear, an alignment shaft sleeve to install 5th gear, a detent ball installation tool, bearing drivers, input shaft seal driver, shift seal driver, and rear seal installation tool. We check the synchronizer for rock. We then deglaze the synchro and cone to create the right drag coefficient.

Also sometimes when i first start it up it wont reverse, i put it in reverse but it just revs. Again this only happens when its cold. Any ideas what it could be? How many miles and service history. Check the fluid level. If it's been many miles change the filter and fluid or have it serviced properly first. Hope that will help if it has been ignored. Im changing engine oil soon so i might change the ATF while im at it and see if that helps. Thanks Is it an electronic trans (Sport - 1-2-3 switch). If so, try putting it in sport or dropping the shifter into 3rd. This kept me going until everything was good and warm. I went as far as purchasing a rebuilt trans with 15k on the clock from a board member here before decided to swap the car to a 5spd. Consequently, I still have a good rebuilt trans with 15k miles on it. Any interest? I think shipping a trans would kill the deal. That's a pretty good service life for the transmission, I'd try to find a good used one.And yes i know what you mean coz mine only seems to lose drive in 4th. I will try changing the ATF first and might even see if its leaking anywhere and see if it improves. If not i will consider your offer Ive given it a restoration, painted it, fitted some coilovers and some throwing star alloys.

Its been running absolutely perfect, it drives great and i have all the service history, but today when i set off in it it wouldnt go up the hill It seems to me like a clutch slip, but i dont really understand automatics enough I checked the yellow dip stick at the back of the engine which i think is the transmission oil. The level was full and it was very clean. This has happened suddenly, its not developed, does anyone know what it might be.Thank you James My grandad was an enthusiast, and theres loads of little extras ive found out about the car as ive come accross them, it wouldnt suprise me if he had done a 325i head swap.I searched from what you suggested and found this page useful:.Im now wondering what to do next.

Do i attempt to repair the transmission. I found a DIY guide here:. epairs.htm First one I attacked I was wondering if I would be able to tell or not, and there was no question. Just be sure to keep things as clean as possible and make sure all the parts go back together the same way. An assistant taking notes or pictures is a good idea. Im having problems removing the top two of the bolts securing the gearbox to the engine, im going to the shop today to buy a smaller torx bit to try. Use lots of extensions, like 3 feet worth.I've done that type and don't recall a problem. Regardless, I don't think there is enough room to detach it in the middle, the driveshaft won't bend enough. Just in case you do get it loose that way be sure to make things so you get the splines lined back up correctly. I have t disconnected the torque convertor yet I've just found out tonight about the three bolts inside, I haven't looked yet but not looking forward to taking them off.

I've also been looking at auto to manual conversions for other bmws such as e34 and e36, haven't seen one for an e28 but it must be quite similar and I'm very tempted to go manual! Cool, one step further. I can only say what M30s are like, no experience with M20s, but for the torque converter bolts a offset box end wrench works well. Top bolts are a pain, but with lowering the crossmember and extensions I've always been able to do it on M30s.
