Mein Auto: 95 bmw 540i
1st gear slip/shudder under heavy throttle only.

Hello,
Recently purchased 95 BMW 540i with 193,340 miles. Trans operated correctly until performed basic fluid\ filter change. Had pan off over night, refilled with AMS-OIL ATF, 6 qts. Thought was full, fluid perking out fill hole. Drove and found to be slipping in drive. Raised back up and added another 3 qts ATF. Car now will very intermittently slip/shudder when accelerating from stop with light throttle. Under heavy full throttle, car will also intermittently slip from stop. I also noticed problem began to be more prominent when slowing to below 8 MPH then accelerating. Like the GM 4L60E slip bump in the C/K series trucks. I removed pan after initial fill to be sure there were no "metals" in pan or unplugged wires or missing filter O-ring, all was good. The trans goes into fail safe every time except when trans slips/shudders under light throttle. Any one out there have any help or input with this scenario? Thank You.
