  1. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hello everybody, i own an x1 f48 20d (built 2015 130tkm, aisin 8 gearbox) since a few months and really enjoy it. I spend quite some time reading in the fora, trying to understand as much as possible from its complexity. One thing i am worried about, is the automatic transmission (which still...
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have done about all I think I can and it's now time to swap out the transmission. I have replaced the mechatronics seal adapter and sleeve + fluid change with ZF recommended fluid. I have checked the fluid level twice and all seems fine. The transmission shutters on light acceleration and I...
  3. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Just picked up my 2008 528i with the ZF 6HP from getting Transmission serviced. How long does it usually take for ZF transmissions to go butter smooth after getting Transmission serviced ? After picking it up it shifts rougher than it did before I dropped it off. Also when I put it in park. The...
  4. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi, question for those who have experience with transmission swaps: would it be feasible to swap a manual transmission for an automatic transmission? Reason that I am asking is because I lost an arm in a motorcycle accident, and am legally restricted to automatic vehicles. I see a lot of E30s...
  5. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi everyone, I have a 2005 BMW Z4 with 173k miles, 5hp19. The other day I was driving, and at the stop sing I heard a clunk sound followed by yellow gear on my dash. I believe the car is stuck in 4th gear, and clunks when I put it in reverse. I’m also unable to shift gears manually with gear...
  6. 5 Series
    Hey guys, new here. I’ve been holding on to my 2003 530i for a couple years trying to figure out the transmission. It’s got a 5hp19. 162 k and I realized now that the trans has solenoid 4-5 shot. There’s a guy who mentioned having a trans from a 2005 330xi. Does anyone know if this would work? I...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello everyone, I just replaced my transmission fluid (100k miles), filter, mechatronic seal set (for valve body to transmission housing), and mechatronic sleeve (for electrical connector). I also had to replace my selector shaft seal on the side of the transmission, so I was horsing around...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So not a whole lot of info on this but I got a 08 328i n51 and judging from the Vin it has a ZF transmission but it's my understanding that there are two ZF transmissions. GA6HP19Z and A6HP19Z. How do I tell which one I have and what the hell is the difference? Thanks
  9. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    I recently wrote about failures on our 2013 135i M sport....the one I put a new engine in after an oil filter house change.. The most recent issue was a broken ground strap from the block to the frame that cause all sorts of havoc with the modules, so everything shut down. Yesterday my wife...
  10. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2006 X5 E53. The car was not starting so I had it towed home and changed the starter. The car now starts but the transmission is not engaging. I can move the gear stick to Drive, Reverse, Neutral and Park. My OBD hasn't produced any related codes to the transmission. In drive and...
  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone, alright story time! so i recently bought a 2004 x5 e53 3.0l with 150k miles from a buddy. It had a blown transmission line and was driven about 20 ft while the AT fluid poured out on the ground, then when shifted into drive stopped dead. Codes and lights came on and wouldn't...
  12. New Member Introductions
    I am posting for my 19 year old dyslexic son who bought a BMW 328i off a cousin. The cousin had previously had transmission trouble and bought a new transmission. He then decided he didn't want the car anymore so my son bought it and the replacement transmission. We paid a local mechanic to do...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey guys, I started facing some problems after I got DSC fault. 1. When accelerating hard 1st and 2nd gear shift ups nicely, after it gets into 3rd my RPMs go high (4k), speed barely rises and my transmission doesn't want to shift up. Only after I slightly release the gas pedal, it goes to 4th...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2007 BMW 530i and it was leaking trans fluid so I parked it and had someone replace the pan & gasket unfortunately drain bolt was stripped so I had to pump in the oil myself once I had it almost filled I tried turning it on so the oil could circulate but it wouldn’t turn on, I would say...
  15. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi all. My gf's 325e lost reverse just this morning. Goes forward ok, I can feel it barely lurch when it goes into reverse, but it just revs like it's in neutral and makes a slight whirring sound. The trans does seem to be on its last legs anyways because it's been late shifting for a while now...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    THE TRANSMISSION GEAR LIGHT IS ON, WILL NOT SHIFT INTO GEAR WITHOUT MANUALLY RELEASING THE EMERGENCY LOCK UNDER THE SHIFTER, IN "D" IT IS CONSTANTLY STUCK IN ONE GEAR - 2ND OR 3RD (?). THERE IS A NOTABLE "KICK" WHEN SHIFTING THE LEVER FROM "P" TO "R" OR "D" POSITIONS. THE CAR DRIVES 20-30MPH...

  18. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello, I have a 2011 520d F11 Msport on 130k miles. I'm having intermittent gearbox issues and wondered if anyone could help? The car has been with BMW for a week and had a wiring loom and insulation replaced that had been melted by the exhaust and was thought to be the issue. It also had a...
  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I’ve recently got the time to work on my 750li and wanted to know if I should be worried about my transmission fluid being so dark and pan having a grey sludge on the magnets. I’m upgrading with the sonnax kit since I’ve been getting SV1/SV2 mechanically stuck code but I’m worried if the issue...
  20. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I just bought a 2011 523i f10. Everything is working like a charm except for the transmission. I feel the shifts between the 1st and 2nd gear a bit too much! Don't know if this is normal in BMWs or not to be honest this is my first time driving one. I'm used to DSGs in VW group so this is new to...
