Just purchased my first 5 series (, 1997 model , 67000 miles, manual transmission )and am very pleased with the car but for one problem. Every now and again it will jump out of first gear with a thump - even with a gentle take off . The fault appears to be intermittent. Any answers?

The following statements may apply to your case though it is dealing with an E36 not E39. But hey you never know; I does not hurt to ask!

The guide sleeve for 1st and 2nd gear may have been incorrectly machined on Getrag S5D-250G transmissions installed on E36 vehicles with the engines produced up to 4/98.

A new machining process for the 1st and 2nd gear guide sleeve which eliminates the above situation on all S5D-250G transmissions was introduced in production on vehicles produced from 4/98.

Correction: If a customer complaint is received, first verify that the external gear shift linkage and clutch system are operating properly. Refer to S.I. 23 01 99 for diagnostic tips.

If the external gear shift linkage and the clutch system are functioning correctly and the problem of 1st or 2nd gear jumping out is still present, the transmission should be replaced.



Now I would certainly check the above Info. with the nearest authorized BMW dealer. The above statement comes directly from the horse's mouth. That is BMW

Wish you good luck
regards
bill

For users in England, I have just had this problem fixed by All Gears in Worksop Notts Telephone Neil on 01909 478581 I dropped the car off and it was ready 3 days later not jumped out of gear since (one month now) used to jump out of first most days! 350 all in Neil said it is the selector forks and a common problem. My car is an E39 520i with 153000 miles on the clock but is driving like new after the fix http.//www.totalbmwmag.co.uk/HandsOn/TechOct.PDF
