no take off hardly, 328i

1996 328i

Take off in drive and it barely moves, it barely rolls but once it gets up to speed its fine, hwy speed 65-70mph 2.8-3000rpm...Its like your honestly taking off in 4th gear....Also you never feel the tranny change gears slowing down or gaining speed...if you pull out in front of traffic? You'll be rear ended its so slow til its gained enough speed, and when you punch it then, far as the gas pedal? It just goes faster, doesn't down shift at all

Only SES light is P1747 (can bus) I think?

Any of you guys got any ideas? Had NO kissues with the car til now and has had no ses lights as well

car has 175K miles on it......Thanks
So, how many pounds you push

My Ride: 94 325i full m3 swap
sounds like your car is stuck in a higher gear, thus its stuck in fail safe mode. the e46's have a light that will come on when this happens. I don't remember seeing the same light in e36's. When it happened to my e46, it was because a fuse blew, so you might be able to check those. this fuse box (at least on the e46) was the one on driver side near windshield under hood.
