coming to a complete stop my 750i does this extra jerk at operating temp.

hi fellow bimmer owners. i curently have a 2006 750i. heres my issue... i just had it at dealership... they replaced metronic sleeve and my electronic shift knob on the cousel and uploaded the lastest software. the car was running awesome.... the reason that it ended up there was i was getting a slam going into 1st gear on the downshift. well last night coming up a big hill it seemed like my rpm's were hanging around 1100 -1400 rpms car seemed confused... i gave it alittle gas and boom it slammed..... another thing it does is when im driving and i approach a light and stop the car does this very minor (but i feel it) jerk motion like it needs to reset..... however since dealership fixed it this only happens half the time... where as before it was all the time... i lterally would have to watch the tach if i was doing a rolling stop... now not the case.... any suggestions!!!!!!!


thank you!!!!

check the transmission fluid level as stated before. If it is topped up then it might be your torque converter. I had the same issue and it ended up being my torque converter

How many miles. I just replaced my guibo joint and noticed a great improvement. I had 116,000 but it has been doing the slam for a while. The guibo joint was pretty beat up.

the part is about 70 bucks labor should be around 3-4 hours. I had some other work done so I'm not exactly sure. my guess is between 350-500 depending on the shop.

I just dealt with a little something like this - not that bad, no slamming. I was just leaking. Took it to a local Indy in Winchester, MA. VERY Nice people - but they DO NOT give any favors as far as pricing. Nearly dealer retail. Long story short, they replaced my "Mechatronic Transfer coupling Sealing sleeve" etc. I have a Carchex warranty - Platinum (so the best). They approved the sleeve, but wanted me to re-use the transmission fluid (62k miles on it), re-use the transmission pan, re-use the transmission pan screws (which are aluminun torx) and supposedly designed for one use only. Well the shop wouldn't warranty their work/actually didn't want the work unless I replaced all fluid & bolts at the bare minimum. Long stort short - the car was fixed and started leaking through the drain bolt on the pan...and was considered "unserviceable" I had the warranty company come back out - they denied any repairs. I had to go to BavAuto (they're great) and pick up fluid, pan and bolts -- then brought to that Indy - all brand new in the box.

When all was said and done - it's working great now. But lesson learned. Carchex Warranty is a joke - I am cancelling today and getting my money back! Also - as I do like Indy shops, those that charge full retail for BMW parts and will only warranty their work with OE BMW parts, and have expensive hourly labor - $100 hr ... as an "Indy" - Stay away!

Oh and BTW - my warranty was Carchex ULTIMATE - and according to my warranty company and contract, I was only supposed to be out $100 deductible for any repair. This one alone set me back $1,100.00


Thank you Carchex!

Wow that warranty sounds like a joke. I did the fluid pan seeling sleeve and adapter seal for 330 and 21 new bolts from ctsc. Then took everything to my dealer and they charged 2 and half hours labor at 95 an hour. All for 570.

There was no noise at all. Have you gotten your flex disk aka guibo changed? Are you getting a clunking sound when putting the car in d or r?

I just had my guibo replaced( dealer 750.00 )and carchex covered it, I was out 100.00 deductible, so far I have not had the slamming into 1st. Gear problem while in sport mode....but still weary about it. But so far so good.
