Gearbox Issues - PLEASE HELP
Good day everyone,
I have a 1999 BMW 540 I which has an automatic gearbox and 200 000 km. If the car is cold it is all good but after I drive for 15-20 min the gearbox starts giving me trouble. When I slow down or almost stop and the car shifts down from 2nd into 1st gear the back wheels are kinda blocking for a split of a second and it feels as if I had hit the brakes really hard and quickly released them after. Some times it dose it really hard, some times not so much and some times not at all. When I go to semi-manual tiptronic mode and I immobilize the car the gear box dose not shift down lower than 3rd gear and i have to shift down manually to 1st in order to accelerate from a complete stop. If there is anything I could do to avoid changing the gearbox please let me know. Thanks in advance and wish you all the best of luck.
