    Hi Everyone, I am new to a BMW vehicle and have been enjoying reading all of your comments and suggestions. I have a question about a transmission maintenance question, but with a twist and seeking your opinions. I recently purchased a 2008 BMW X5 3.0 SI with 85,000 miles. Transmissions is...

    Thanks for the input guys on my last post for a need on a trans fluid change at 108,200(now 109,200) miles. I actually took it to a reputable shop that wants to charge $500 to do a transmission fluid change that includes the fluid, filter(probably the gasket too), and a sleeve(?) that is...

    I have a 06 E90 330i I bought with around 112k miles and have since almost gotten to 122k. I like the car but have some concerns with the transmission. On the way home (6 hour drive) at about 5.5 hours the transmission had trouble shifting into gear and the transmission warning came on. I...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Let me start off by saying I've done A LOT of searching and can't seem to come to any conclusion based on my specific issues as they pertain to the codes and errors I seem to be experiencing. I know this seems like a common issue and I've gone through tons of feeds on transmission issues but...

    So I posted a little while back about my 2014 335xi having a transmission leak. It was "fixed" the first time by replacing the pan and retorqing the bolts. Soon after getting it back it was leaking again.. bmw had my car for over three weeks and finally told me "your transmission pan was leaking...

    First off, I've been reading Bimmerfest forums for several months now, and everyone sounds like they know what they are talking about, or are simply interested in their cars performance, as I am. Here is my story, I hope you all can help me out with some of the problems I've been having. I'm...

    I was really confused lately on whether PS fluid same one as transmission fluid?! it says ATF only on the PS reservoir but I coudn't find any power steering fluid that says ATF, instead I found ATF Drexon/Mercon. Would someone clear that up for me? Since it says ATF only on power steering cap...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So I took my car [2004 525i with 55467 miles) in the dealer for a vehicle check and they told me that I have a crack in my transmission pan. I inquired about the cost to resolve the issue and they game me a ridiculous sum! The Transmission pan alone was $271 and they were quoting me $476 for 10...

    The title says a lot. It was leaking so I parked it for a while till I had time and budget to look into this. I believe the pan may be a bit dented from a bump, but I haven't lifted the car yet to be sure. Regardless, it will only move in reverse and in forward gears it shrieks (I tested that...

    I made the appointment today to have the transmission fluid/filter changed. I'm at 45kmi but want to have this done while the car is still in warranty in case of any "unintended consequences." Anybody have BMW do this yet? What did you pay? My d began life as a loaner car, so I figure its...

    2001 740iL I searched the forums for my issue and found a few scenarios that were very similar, but also wanted to get some specific feedback on my problem to see if there is anything additional I can learn here. My reverse is very weak when cold, but once she warms up it gets a lot better but...

    My car is a 2003 745LI with 89,200 miles on it and I'm looking to change the transmission fluid.... I was wondering if this transmission fluid is good for the car and if $10.50 for a quart is a good deal?
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey everyone. My 2003 525i looks like it lost all the Trans fluid on my way to Tampa the other day on the highway and it spread all up the trunk with the wind. I have just over 120,000 miles on it and everything else runs like a top. I'm being told it's a pump seal that's most likely wrong with...

    I've decided to follow the Ole School Maintenance Schedule for my 2008 550i (n62T). My search for a good DIY guide for an Automatic Transmission Fluid Flush/Change has proven futile. Thanks for your help!

    I currently have (after many years of 3 series ownership) a 2002 330ci Convertible... couple questions: does the letter ci mean convertible? what is in the door of the ski storage in the back of the front (back of the seats) is it a fan? or speaker? Fortunately i have a trans fill bottle under...
