e36 question for the bimmersport crew

my m42 with 5 speed has 220k on it now. Recently i did a tranny fluid change, i was told to pour in lucas gear oil 80w90. It was too heavy, and when cold caused second to grind so i drained it, and put dextron 2 back in. Now everything is fine but when my transmission is cold, i can t get into 5th gear without a grind, when it warms up its fine, and doesn t grind.

What do you guys recommend? I believe a proper tranny flush would work right? how much to do it?

Help is appreciated, i don t want to cause damage. I grinded lightly about 10 times so far, if i stay in 4th and let it warm up for 5 min on the highway, it will go into 5th without a grind and continue as long as the car is warm.

BMW claims the transmissions have "lifetime fluid"

It wont hurt to change it. May make things a little smoother.

^^ exactly what I heard, but just tell em you had to replace the tranny or something and ask what fluid to use, then pick it up, 30 bucks for piece of mind is worth it.
