Torque Converter Slipping -- SOLVED --
 
My x is giving me code 000030 Egs: Coverter lockup clutch, excessive slip. Dealer quoted me $7k for a new trans. It will only slip at high rpm and in low gear when taking off hard from a complete stop. Won't slip at all if I keep the rpms under 3.5k. Need advice on where to get a new converter. The trans shifts solid and flawlessly so I don't see why I should replace it. I am pretty sure I can swap the converter myself but have no idea where to get it. I've used cobra transmission for my transfer case chain but they don't seem to have the converter for the zf5hp24 trans. Any suggestions? Is there a more heavy duty converter option than the stock zf one? I tow a small trailer full of tools quite often and would like a beefier one if it is available. Has anyone else had this problem? I also have code 00000F EGS: Pressure Actuator EDS, total current. Could this be a pressure related issue and not a bad converter? I have seen these: Oversized Lubrication Valve Kit - 139740-03K - Sonnax which say that they will fix the TC slip problem. Any input would be appreciated!

No input? I'm really stuck on this issue as I have no prior experience of working with transmissions. Really, any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

I had X's tranny rebuilt for $5200 canadian.That includes the new friction packs and rebuilt Torque Converter.
Give that you are in the US,you should be able to get a better deal and indy transmission shop than at the dealership.If there's one reputable shop around that knows about euro transmissions.So they don't start refilling it with let's say Dexron or Mercon fluid instead of LT71141.
On the other hand,if the money isn't that much of a concern,then getting a ZF rebuilt tranny from dealer is a good choice.It should come filled with right stuff to the right level etc.

I have a brand new torque converter from BMW for 5HP24 trans. The client had me special order the unit and paid for it. The vehicle met up in an unfortunate accident prior to us doing the install and of course the he no longer has an X5. Since this was a special ordered unit there is no return. So if you are needing one I can make you a great deal on obtaining it. PM me if interested and we can proceed from there.

You can check with these guys on the torque converter:

BMW - ZF5HP24 Transmissions

but in my experience, when the converter lock-up clutch goes, it has usually dumped enough worn friction material into the fluid that it and other friction surfaces become contaminated and exhibit reduced performance as well.

I have seen good prices for a remanufactured transmission from:

BMW X5 Certified Reman Transmissions

when checking on the GM 5L40E for mine.

2002 X5 3.0 298,000 miles (still on original fluid)
2014 428i 16,900 miles

2004 325i sold at 123,600 miles
2001 325i sold at 66,000 miles

Error codes can be deceiving. Specific symptoms can be associated with more than one cause. I suggest going to a well recommended transmission repair shop that routinely works on BMWs.

A symptom that identifies the the torque convertor as the core cause is that often there is a whine at idle. In park less, and increases in drive

The 4.6 has a beefier torque convertor.

Agree with SRMMMM, even if the T/conv is the problem, it will dump a load of rubbish in to the trans... At over 150k refreshing the trans is not a bad idea.

I did mine for under 2k all-in but that was in my garage. Not a shop charging 200/hr. I've got almost 50k since my rebuild, so it was worth the pennies.

I was going to rebuild my tranny but I just serviced it and it is running great
I would call ZF they have shops all across the country , they quoted me $2800 for shops in NY[just to rebuild the old one], call them up it's worth it.

I was getting a slip error on my tranny which I had rebuilt 10k prior. Turned out it was the ABS module giving erratic problems causing the transmission error. Next I was getting a ABS wheel sensor failure. It was all due to the module. Replaced it, no more issues.
