Question about BMW X5 Series

1 Answer

Bmw x5 Don't do it! Legal advice has said if it seems to good to be true then it is. they will just take your money and not produce the car. If it is being advertised on autotrader then you should advise them. One guy has already resonded to this saying he lost a lot of money and is looking into legal action.

I dug a little deeper and found that the company had no legal registration (the missus is a lawyer!!). I also found that a good way to see if an escrow company is legitimate you can copy and paste chunks of text from its webpage into Google. This nearly always brings up exact matches with several other companies which is very suspicious!! I even found that photos and testimonials turned up on several different sites... In fact go to www.logistica-transporte.com (the company my "seller" suggested) and try it, it's quite scary to see just how many fake companies these scam artists have set up over the years.

My 2001 x5 wont stay running when I press the accelerator.


Hello Tom,

A dirty throttle body will produce your described symptoms.

A can of carb cleaner should sort that out or eliminate the throttle body as the source of the problem.

Here's a general video on cleaning a throttle body:

Transmission sensor ( fail safe prog )


I have had to have my BMW X5 2004 transmission rebuilt TWICE in the last 2 years. First, @80K, it just stopped, though engine rev'd. When the trans place opened it up, they said the trans oil was burned, so they rebuilt it for $2,500. I had problems over the year and then it went again during the warranty and they repaired it, free. Lasted 14K Miles. I got ALOT of Trans Failsafe Prog lights. When I turned off the car, it reset, but ultimately came back on, and forewarned an impending trans failure. When the trans went the 2nd time, I bought a USED 40K trans from LKQ (I was lucky to find one with low mileage) for $2K and had the trans place put it in. NO PROBLEMS now. I got this advice from a BMW dealer parts guy out in PA - NO ONE can really rebuild BMW Trans well. Either go for a remanufactured one, or a low mileage used one. Getting them rebuilt at the local trans place will only give you heart aches and you'll end up doing the job again. ALSO: DO NOT WAIT FOR the BMW recommended 100K miles to replace the trans fluid. I suggest 60K. That's the #1 cause of trans failure. I'm out $6K on trannys now, but I'm about to take legal action. One more thing - I used K-Solv in my radiator, and the Trans guy told me that it clogged up the trans cooler. He took off the cooler lines and put a video tube camera up there, and yes, it showed cloggage. Jury is out on who's the real culprit here. Bottom line: Trans Program Failure is a pre-cursor to transmission failure. Get ready... Don't let a local shop rebuild it! Start shopping for a low mileage used one!

How to reset oil life on bmw x5 2005


Your BMW has a CBS (conditions based service) system, this is a new standard system for all BMW's produced in 2005 and on, these CBS system cannot be reset without being hooked up at the dealer, there is no currently offered aftermarket tool for this operation that I know of. I understand the frustration of this problem, I own a 2006 325i, with the same CBS system. Hope this helps, let me know
