X5 sticky transmission
I drive a 2005 X5 4.4i sport with 109,000 miles. Ive noticed that the transmission will jump coming out of first gear. It doesnt do it all the time, in fact it not often at all. When it does happen its usually during a rolling stop or if i take my foot of the gas and let it coast for a bit then step on the gas slowly. I have modified my driving to minimize the jumping as much as i can. Does this sound like a sticky valve or signs of a larger problem? About how much would a valve replacement run? Everything else works great and i love the car, but replacing a transmission is an investment i dont want to make. Advice anyone? Thanks!
