Hi all,

I've got a 2001 X5 with the 3.0 with about 166k. A while back as I was going to work the car suddenly felt like it was in neutral. I pulled over and put it in to reverse, it backed up a little bit but then felt like it was in neutral again. I put it back in drive and it didnt go anywhere.

I had it towed home and did a drain/fill of the trans. Smae thing, it will go forward and backwards but as soon as I try to give it gas it stops.

There was a slight wirring noise from under the vehicle just before this all happened so I figured it was the torque converter. I got a reman converter and replaced the old one but it is still the same.

Any ideas on what is causing this? I've seen some talk about valve bodies and solenoids but not sure how to determine of they are the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! All three of our vehicles are currently out of commission (it's been a bad week)!!

Check the splines on the rear of the front driveshaft. They don't engage fully, and can strip. Usually comes with more noise, but symptoms are very similar.

If it comes down to the transmission, you need it diagnosed and the pressures checked before replacing any more parts.

1. Jerks from park into drive if you dont wait 5 seconds before hitting the gas after moving the shifter
2. slow to shift when cold from 1-2 and 2-3. It overrevs and then catches
3. when I am coming to a stop to roughly 5mph and then push the gas, the car jerks into gear


Should I re-program the tranny with new software? Any other ideas? I would really appreciate any insight into this
This thread is scary and it makes me want to sell my 01 x5 with 120k on it before the tranny goes out. but anyway..

I am having the same issue as above i have noticed the problem is worse when the tranny is hot

Thanks JCL. I didn't specifically check them but I didn't notice anything wrong with them when I took the transfer case off. If they were stripped I probably would have noticed them. I will check today to be sure.

I have a 2002 X5 3.0 with the GM "Built in France" Transmission. Mileage is just about 176,000. I do service my transmission at 50,000 mile intervals. I use the Pentosin ATF fluid. My transmission just started giving me trouble. It will not shift into reverse right away, and when it does, it only backs up very slowly. If there is any incline, or hill, forget it. It won't back up. All forward gears are fine, shifts through them just fine. I have read about the TCC Solenoid. I got one for about $65 bucks, so I am going to try that. I also picked up a used transmission with about 74,000 miles on it just in case. I also downloaded the factory overhaul manual for the transmission. I can email it to anyone, just send me a message. [email protected] The manual states that the transmission takes DEX III, so I am going to have it completely flushed, and filled with the Valvoline HighMileage Synthetic ATF, and new filter. I will post back with the outcome.

For the last few days when I put in R to back out of garage, I have noticed the truck lurches pretty hard, and then again when I put in in D to drive off.

Once I drive off, it seems the transmission start out in 3rd or 4th instead of 1st, and stays in 3/4 until I arrive at my destination. I have no issue getting into R to park.

No strange noises or anything and other than being real slow during acceleration from a standstill, there seem to be no adverse effects.

Am I putting undue strain on my torque converter?

I did change the transmission fluid about 200 miles ago at a little over 133k. That was the first time the fluid was changes.

Any ideas what to look for? Maybe clogged passages in the valve body from doing the fluid change?

The 5HP24 fails safe to 4th gear (A & B clutches engaged) with an open torque converter, but this mode is usually accompanied by TRANS FAILSAFE PROG being displayed on the message centre. Are you getting any warning messages?

If it was shifting good before, I would check to be sure its FULL. The instructions are very specific about temp and balancing the vehicle on all fours. My first guess would be fluid is low.

Alternatively, your battery could be going if you've never replaced it. I just find it suspect that this is happening so close after the change. If you did the filter and all, I would drain and refill it (without removing the pan) - 200 miles is enough to mix the old in with the new. Ive always used Valvoline Maxlife in these transmissions with great results.

Phil, I'm not getting the TRANS FAILSAFE PROG message, but let me double check since I have been getting the LICPLATE LIGHT message ever since installing my rear backup camera, so I might have missed it.

Duke, I did follow the instructions carefully when replacing the fluid. Trans cold, engine running, shifting through all the gears, then topping off the fluid. Took almost 8 quarts in total. I let it drain for several days with the pan off. I'll do another drain and fill (I got just under 4 quarts if ZF fluid left, will that be enough?)

Battery was replaced less than a month ago, but I have been playing with installing new aftermarket amps and tuning them, so the battery might have been low on charge this morning. Maybe it will do better when I take it back out lunch today (work is a 20 minute ride from home).

Will look for any error messages and report back this afternoon.

Thanks!
