Jerk when shifting to R position
 
I have E70 2010 4.8 & I am experiencing an intermittent jerk when shifting to R position. Any one here had this problem & how to correct it?

I have this same issue with my vehicle; it jerks when I shift from Park/Neutral to Drive or Reverse; it also jerks when it downshifts after I've released the throttle and I'm cruising to stop. I've driven 40k+ miles like this and I'm pretty sure this how the gearbox is built.

Thanks

Any more feedback on this issue?

My ex-wife said I became a jerk every time I put my car in gear....she's gone but the cars aren't.

Sorry, no advice to offer other than recommending you get it checked out at the shop.

I am not sure if it works on our e70 but try to press the accelerator for like 30 seconds with ignition in "on" ( where all cluster lights are on) position but the engine not running. It's like a transmission reset.

Thanks 0428...of course, since then I've upgraded to a newer model with better features and fewer miles on the chassis.:p

Still having this issue with my X5!

Are u parked on an incline/decline? Do u get a clunking sound everytime u engage R or D after parking? If u are I suspect u have done long term damage to the tranny. I have a sloped driveway and this is what I do everytime I park.

1. Park the car while in D with footbrake depressed
2. Shift to N
3. engage parking brake
4. Let go of footbrake, car will jerk a bit according to slope of the driveway
5. Engage P in tranny

What this does is allow the parking brake(rear brakes) to absorb the shock of the motion due to the driveway slope, rather than the P in tranny itself. I have no clunking sound when I apply this method.

I noticed recently a few times that if I parked on a sloped street..... and then going into R, it makes a rather loud clunk and the car jerks, only in R and not in D.

Don't care what it is, as I am turning it in in a few months, sorry, no useful help to offer.

as per my knowledge, (searched the forums) I believe the parking brake automatically engages the moment the car is placed in park and engine turned off. I could be wrong but, again search info

Exactly, and that's what I'm trying to avoid by putting it in N, parking brake, let the car lurch and stopped by rear brakes, then the P on shifter. Cheaper to replace rear brakes than a tranny rebuild that's for sure.

Mine does this too
