BMW X5 TRANSMISSION PROBLEM
2001 BMW X5 • V8 4WD Automatic • 200,000 miles
Transmission problem 2001 BMW X5 V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 200,000 Kilomeeter I have a problem with my X5 4.4 2001 Auto Transmission. After driving for a while, the transmission does not shift properly anymore. Usual operation at startup is quite good and not any sign or********** or error message. The first 10 to 15 minutes the transmission works fine, also it does not feel****** in any way. When I put it into drive I hear a clunk but after that nothing. Shifting is also still carried out smooth, however the shifting point is much too high, I need to rev the engine to about 3 to 4K before shifing occurs. Usually it would shift much sooner, around 2K to 2.5K I believe? It definately feels wrong. It means I drive on the highway only in 2nd or 3rd gear at very high revs. Need to push the pedal hard to force gear shift at v. High revs, up to 5K sometimes. Shifting down would also occur too soon when comming from higher gears, leading to a****** braking at traffic lights as the revs are too high on the downshift. But this issue is more irregular whereas shifting up becomes a constant problem after running the car for a while. I also tried to change gears in manual mode. When I want to shift into i.E. 3rd gear at revs below 4K it would not engage the gear and the display would show a drop back to 2nd after 3rd was shown on the panel for a brief moment. I felt that 2nd gear was still at work. Same applies to shift gear 1to 2, 3 to 4, etc. I can only do the manual mode shift at high revs (min 3.5 to 4K) what could be the problem here? Computer did not produce any error messages either.
