    Default Extreme vibration in transmission on my BMW X5 E53 4.8IS 2006 Model

    Hi guys,

    My car BMW X5 4.8IS is having transmission issues, in the kick down stage the car shivers alot and the gears take a lot of time to change, after two or three attempts of kick down I get trans fail safe error, but after restarting the car the error vanishes. Strangely this issue doesnít occur if I kick down after 80 kms per hour the gearbox operates perfectly but any speed below 80 the car is having severe gearbox issues. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    i think the first step would be to run a diagnostic check to read all the fault codes. HAve you taken it to any BMW specialists so far? The symptoms sound a bit serious. I hope its not.

    Thank you Mr Wazif for your response. I have recently bought this car its been a week or so. So I havenít got it checked. Was planning to go to Janu Auto Mobile Garage or Madinat Frankfurt to get it checked... if you have any garages in mind I will definitely drop by to check.

    I've been servicing my cars at Octane in Al quz for a long time now. Can certainly vouch for their service, do consider them as well.
