Ouch! Thanks for the info!

How much oil??

Hey guys.
Its been a real good thread! I have been looking at the ZF lifeguard oil and the filter/sump.
One thing I can't seem to find a definite answer on is the amount of oil you need.
I have found some info on the ZF group website and it said it the ZF type C transmission had a 9.9 liter oil capacity.
Is that right?

Some one may know what is it? All ready took it to dealer (bay side bmw in great neck ny) they said it was the rmdf basic control unit dme but the transmission is exactly the same after they repair it.
I had same problem with my BMW X5 4.4 2005 with same symptoms, I thought at the beginning that was lack of maintenance of the automatic transmission gear box, but found the real reason when changed the front transmission and took apart the transmission transfer case for maintenance, oil was not in good shape, after change the oil by a liqui Moly transmission oil 75W-80 the problem disappeared, the down shifting is very smooth and the transmission of power is very efficient, no kicks are noticeable anymore. However I advise to check the condition of the clutch which is inside the transfer case and the chain and maintenance as required.

Hi All, in relation to the bump in the rear end I too have this problem with my 4.4 E53 X5.
The mechanic who services my cars has flushed the transmission did all the bits and pieces to it and it still does it.
I have learnt to live with it and now know how to drive it with this problem.'
I asked the question WHY he told me that there is nothing wrong with the box it is a common problem with all X5's.
