I have the 4.4 in my X5. Check for vacuum leaks. There's a small hose that leads from the intake (after the MAF) through the plastic on top of intake and down the left side of the engine bay. Mine...

That is when your RPMs "flair" or jump in between gears instead of having a nice smooth shift where the RPMs drop by 2000.
