Question about BMW 528

Open Question

99 bmw 528i, code po740

My 99 BMW 528i with over 100k-miles Diagnostics showed a code3 po740. I was told it is tcc silinoid. A BMW mechanic on ''just ask'' had said it is a hard shift, whatever that means. If it is a transmission issue, I know that on highways (only) when I have to slow down quick like at toll booths, it is difficult to spead up again. I do not have this hesitation at any other time.
I am petrefied of transmission shops. They buy a new yacht at every repair, even if it is minor. Please help with with your best advice.
Many thanks

Your right in as much as it shouldnt need complete over haul but a competent auto trans technician to clear the shift fault.It could be a solenoid or check valve that should be able to be repaired with out the transmission having to be removed.

If your talking about what would a dealership change, it generally consists of a tune up, including spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, oil change, pcv valve, and fuel filter. Thats also usually when they want to replace the timing belts. There may be one or two other things specific to BMW, but generally thats what you can expect.

the tcc solenoids are in the transmission,but the computer sees that the torque converter didn't lock up,so it blames the solenoid in charge of doing that,
but you will probably find the converter is going bad,a tranny shop will be able to verify which is not working.

What would approx. cost be to change the timing chain on a 2000 BMW 528i


The tools alone will be $1000. Not something you will want to do yourself. I good BMW specialist will charge about $1500. Its also highly unlikely your chain is bad. It normally is going strong after 300,000 miles and is the LAST thing that will break. Why do you think yours is bad?? If it is because the car won't start, then I will tell you there's 99 things that it could be and if timing chain is even on the list its dead last. A BMW ain't no Toyota.

Bmw 528i 1999


any check engine light? Try cleaning the intake throttle plate with a lightly soaked paper towel, the plate is located in the intake; with throttle cable attached to it at the top of the engine near the bellows boot attached to the air cleaner assembly that comes off the mass airflow to the intake. It looks a 3.5 mm cd. That plate gets dirty and throws off the idle air control.

Code p-0700 / p-0740 how to clear code


To clear the codes is the easy part, you can use a scan tool or remove the battery neg terminal for 5 mins but the codes will come back.

the PO700 is a code that tells you there is a ****** code which is the PO740 code. the PO740 code means the TCC circuit has a problem. this could mean there is a bad tcc solenoid or wire to tcc.

I would have this problem checked out asap. these vans have a lot of problems with the transmissions . your problem may be as simple as a solenoid pack problem. these vans with transmission problems can get costly, having it checked now would be wise. if you had a scan tool to get all ****** switches and solenoid value readings i would be able to help you check it but a ****** shop can check it with in an hour. good day.

Should a 1999 323i BMW transmission fluid be changed when it's mileage is 197,000?????


BMW says that the transmission fluid is permanent. However, you have to keep in mind that they do not greatly care whether a car lasts 200k miles or 300k miles, so long as it makes it though the warranty period.
BMW also said that the previous generation (e36) fluid was permanent, and that has proven to be untrue.
I believe that the 1999 323 uses the later, really expensive, synthetic transmission fluid, so brace yourself for a hefty bill.
I recommend replacing the older generation fluid every 50k miles and the newer generation (yours) fluid every 100k miles. My wife's 330 is approaching 100k miles and I intend to replace her fluid soon.

1997 528i doesn't shift between 1st and 2nd but if I shift to S3 and back to Drive it shifts


Hi,
I had the same problem with my 1997 528i also. After doing a little research and talking to some mechanics that told me to replace the neutral safety switch located on the side of the transmission. I got the switch from BMW dealer and it cost around $300. After installing it the transmission shifted like new.
