  2. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I see a ton of threads about jerking at low speeds, but what about at high speeds. When I am on the highway trying to pass someone, over 65 MPH, the acceleration hesitates or jerks... The car starts bucking until I let off the accelerator... I am assuming this is something to do with the...

  4. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Dear Forum members, I've been test driving a 2006 X3 (92.5k miles) for the last few days. The vehicle is gorgeous, highland green metallic with orange interior. The only notable problem I can discern is that under heavy acceleration (engine above ~4500 rpm) and above 65 mph, the car loses and...

    Hi, My 2011 X3 xDrive 28i is having major automatic transmission issues. It is "slipping" every time I step on the gas to go uphill or to speed quickly on the freeway. It feels like it is slipping and can't generate power. It slips 5 to 6 times before it engages fully. It happens mostly at...

    Hello All, Ok so last week a valet brought my car back to me and the passenger window was rolled down. I asked them why it was rolled down when I dropped it off with the windows up. They said they do this so that they don't get locked out of the car?! Whatever. The problem is the window...

    So over the last four days my 2007 328i (152k miles) has started to display some interesting symptoms. On saturday after driving 186 miles without a break, my car slightly jerked. It happened two more times shortly after and on the third time, the SES light flashed on & immediately turned off...
  10. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    99 BMW 740 il, M62/TU Engine, Automatic, 179XXX Miles, Car shifts and pulls fine when under light acceleration, but as soon as the gas pedal is depressed enough to initiate a down shift the engine revs but the car does not accelerate like the transmission is not engaging the gear. Seems to...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, I am having an issue with a 1994 E36 automatic. When I start my car and take off the transmission is hesitant to shift. Even when warmed up it wont shift unless I get the RPMs up around 3000 and hold the accelerator in that spot. I changed the fluid and as expected, it was black. I'm...

    Hello, I have a '99 328 with 125k miles. Automatic transmission is slipping intermittently in first. Generally OK after it gets into second gear. From the threads it looks like a fluid and filter change is step #1. How much should I expect to pay at an independent shop using BMW fluid &...

    Hey Guys. So I have a 98 model BMW 528i with 190000 miles on it and it has been doing great! But just recently the transmission seems to be slipping. It is an automatic transmission and when ever I get up in my RPM's, it most of the time now, does not shift. I have to pop quickly in and out of...
  14. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So the past 2 or 3 days, my transmissions has been slipping when I first start it up after it has gone down into the 30s at night. This problem always went away within a minute or two of driving and so I figured it had something to do with the cold weather and the transmission being old. Well...

    Hi. I have a 1998 528i with an unusual issue. The car has started to react to wet roads as if the roads were icy. When the road has rain on it the car gets sloppy, amost like when the road has a coating of snow on it. The traction light comes on with the slightest depression of the accelerator...

    I was driving around 300-400 miles today with my dad, and I noticed some weird stuff. Its a 5 speed manual. I was driving about 80mph on the highway and I would give some gas and the RPMs would raise from 3k to 4k then go back to 3k before speeding up. It felt like I had the clutch in and was...
