    My 1992 won't up shift when in passing gear

    MY 1992, 325i, HAS A PROBLEM. WHEN YOU GO INTO PASSING GEAR, IT STAYS THERE AND DOES NOT UPSHIFT AGAIN, SO I HAVE TO BE VERY CARFUL ABOUT OVER REVING THE ENGINE. IF I BACK OFF SLIGHTLY, IT WILL UP SHIFT. IN NORMAL DRIVING, THE CAR SHIFTS UP AND DOWN JUST FINE. AS A TEST, I REMOVED THE AUTO/MANUAL SHIFT SELECTOR SWITCH, THINKING THAT MAYBE THE SWITCH WAS THE PROBLEM. NO CHANGE. PUTTING THE SWITCH BACK AND SELECTING MANUAL MODE, I HAVE NO PROBLEM SHIFTING UP AND DOWN. SO I AM AT A LOSS AS TO WHY WHEN I GO INTO PASSING GEAR, THE TRANNY DOWN SHIFTS PROPERLY , BUT WILL NOT UPSHIFT AT THE PROPER RPM'S UNLESS I BACK OFF SLIGHTLY ON THE PEDAL. I SWAPPED THE SWITCH, THAT'S LOCATED UNDER THE PEDAL, AND IT STILL DOES THE SAME THING. THANKS.

    Solution

    I FIGURED OUT WHAT WAS HAPPENING. I HAD JUST BOUGHT THE CAR AND EVEN THOUGH THE TRANNY SHIFTED PERFECT UNLESS IN PASSING GEAR, THEN I HAD TO BACK OFF SLIGHTLY FOR IT TO UPSHIFT INTO THE NEXT GEAR. I JUST REALIZED THAT THE COMPUTER HAS HAD A HIGH PERFORMANCE CHIP INSTALLED. BOY DOES IT MAKE A 325i PERFORM.
