How old is the gearbox oil? In some cases, older oil (higher viscosity when old) will be too "thick" in colder weather and inhibit the synchro on your gears from slipping into 1st gear. The reason it only happens in 1st, is 'cause the shifting mechanism on the forward change is finer than that of the reverse change.

POSSIBLE Solution: Replace the gearbox oil with a lower viscosity ie. "thinner" oil.

In the morning when 1st starting the car, the climate control does not work


If the climate control is on "auto" there is a delay before starting. For 15 minutes it is either freezing cold outside or needs repair. Depending where you live. Well anyway a way around the delay is to go to a manual setting and the system should start blowing right away.

Of course if it hasn't warmed up yet the air will be cold!!

Track the temperature gauge on the dash. As the temperature lift's off and approaches normal range heat should be coming from the vents,

New cars that are super efficient are very slow to heat up. The old gas gushers had plenty of heat to spare

So if you think it is cold where you live heck out the videos,

When cold in mornings when back up then shift into


Every car needs a heating engine time specially when its cold, I recomend like about 5 to 10 minutes after you start engine and before you change from P to D. If you try to start the engine first time in the morning, it's cold outside and you immediately go on run you are going to have this trouble every time. Every engine has it's operational standard temperature a 5 to 10 minutes working engine, car stopped, may guaranty this standard temperature and optimal function conditions, and also keeps a longer life of your car.

Good luck

I have a bmw 5 series 530i touring it has done 57000 miles and is a late 2003. my question is that when i'm in steptronic and say going about 40-50 the car feels that the engine has stopped and restarts...


the steptronic is an automatic transmission, and it sounds like you may be having trouble with the torque converter lock up feature, I recommend that you check the oil level and even change the fluid in the trans, retest and see if your problem continues, if it does I strongly recommend you take it to BMW for diagnostic and repair, it will be cheaper in the long run. Hope this helps, let me know
