Mein Auto: 1998 740il
Several of the above sound like the problem we are having with our 1998 740il so I just wanted to see if anyone who had similar issues found a definitive solution. Car has about 180000 miles and has been well taken care of. When holding highway speed or slight acceleration at highway speeds car seems to slip/fluctuate back and forth between 4th gear and o/d accompanied by a sort of rubbing..not exactly a grinding noise. Switching from Automatic to Manual stops the problem as the car stays in 4th.
