You will more than likely need to remove the transmission from the car and have it rebuilt. Since this is a guess (based on 40 years) on my part have it taken to a transmission repair shop bob and have them confirm the guess is right, i'm sure it is.

SOURCE: BMW E38 735i no reverse gear..????

Before you make any other moves, I would try having the transmission flushed and refilled and filters changed and if that doesn't work, you may have burned out the modulator so you may have to shop around for another transmission or have that one rebuilt, whichever would be feasibly financial for you.

SOURCE: all gears work except reverse won't work. Check

Take the car to AutoZone, they will check your ECM for the code using a OBD II scanner that is causing the problem for free, once you have that code the problem can be diagnosed easier.

When you loose reverse it is pretty much over for the trans

Only a complete disassembly & rebuild,usually resolve that

I have a 2001 X5 with manual transmission. Can't shift the gears any longer except for reverse. How hard is it to fix that?


Is the clutch working? If not, probably leaking fluid somewhere like the slave or master cylinder. Find and fix. If clutch works normally in reverse, the internal shift mechanism may have jammed. Some of the transmissions can be worked on in car (remove trim, remove top holding shifter in place and try to manually reset shift levers) while others require removal from the vehicle.

Is it manual trance-mission or automatic. If it is manual you have to check shifting leaver system & gear selector unit. If it is automatic check selector switch,wiring harness & valve body.

Transmission problem bmw x5 automatic


dear friend-the fact that your vehcl does not pick up speed tells me that it is slipping,there is a pressure lost in the gear box,you have to remove and rebuild as the clutches will be burnt.

Change automatic transmission fluid and filter first, sometimes can solve this problem.

or chage c-90 oil for your gear box and at the same time, change the clutch plate.
