My ride is a BMW E36, 325i, 1994 automatic model, with nearly 197,000km mileage. The car was fine until two weeks ago when it went into limp mode, and the ABS light and gear oil light on the instrument cluster lit up. There was a tremendous loss of power. It could not even climb the ramp in a basement. After driving it slowly for 25km, there was a strong burning oil smell in the cabin, and in the boot. Does it need a top overhaul or is there an engine and transmission problem?
