Question about 2005 BMW X5
2005 BMW X3, 6speed manual 2.0 diesel-- this vehicle is a bit sluggish on take off from rest- needs higher revs to pull smoothly from rest and normalizes on all the other subsquent gear ratios, ie 2 up to 6 (top gear).The clutch is pefect and it doesnt judder. Is this normal or its robbing me.

Thank you for replying, i just got a mechanic to change the fluid but problem still there. Would what you suggested be very expensive to do? ie sticking or broken valve springs.
Its a march 2001 rover 75 cdt 2.0 diesel auto by the way.

Have someone handy to press the gas pedal for you after the engine has warmed up well; best if driven.
While you listen at the exhaust pipe, have your helper increase the revs slowly and note whether the exhaust note changes to a hiss, instead of the sound of an engine firing.
You may have a decayed catalytic convertor and when they come apart inside, they can clog mufflers and resonators (the second, smaller muffler).
I've had this happen on more than one car and when it happened on a Fiat Strada years ago, since the routing of the system was fairly straight and made of heavier gauge stainless steel, I fired two shots with a .357 magnum into the tailpipe.
Never had another problem with it.

sometimes it will clear if you turn the X5 off and restart it. however, it could be an early indication that the tranny is about to expire. i have had it happen and it cleared with a power cycle, but also had friends where it cleared for a few weeks/months and returned. this time it was really the transmission that went bad. if you can't get it to clear, then i'd suggest taking it to the dealer and have them plug into it to have a better look.

to be fully honest if its doing this its wont be nothing to do the the fluid, the clutch plate will be sticking on the shaft untill you get it upto a higher speed,, that means you will need a complete clutch fitted, because as its slipping it is burning the clutch plate away,, you have new clutch fitted and car will be great. . playing away with things only makes matters worse and time comsuming ..
