OK, so, another question. Sorry for asking all these...

Another one I've seen is dirt cheap and says "unfortunately there is a problem with the automatic transmission, when it's in reverse you must just touch the gas slightly at first then you can give it more gas, if you go to put your foot down it will kind of jerk and the same in drive for first but then the rest is ok."

Chances a flush and a new filter will sort that?? Or avoid?

There are at least three different transmissions used in E53 cars - so it would be helpful to state the year and engine when asking about specific issues.

Ah sorry, I knew that I meant early 4.4 and assumed everyone else did for some bizarre reason so that should be the ZF 5HP-24? Do diesels run the GM box like Range Rovers?

more than likely a worn seal on a solenoid or a crack in the valve body… valve body refurbish is a $700-1000 job and makes the transmission good as new, so how 'dirt cheap'? if $1000 below market it would still be worth it. It's possible that just one solenoid is shot and could be a $40 fix.

Well it's in the UK and it's up at £900 and I reckon he might take an offer as its been for sale a few weeks. Also has LPG conversion.
