Hello, My 1994 BMW 740i is not shifting into 5th gear on automatic mode, it happens after it being driven for while and is warm, when cold it shifts gear till 5th gear normally, when it gets stuck on 4th...


IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:

each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:

Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

I have a 2001 325se bmw with auto transmission. There is no transmission warning light but occasionally the car sticks in 4th gear & wont change up to 5th. When this happens there is a bad vibration...


i would say more like a recon gearbox ,or rip it out and fit a manual gearbox ,No parts are available for this gearbox well in europe anyway so its a complete exchange gearbox from dealer cost in excess of 2500 euros so it could be time to trade it in quick for a newer model

My 1999 1.8 petrol vectra is making a whirring noise in the engine when its steady in 5th it stops


very difficult to advise without heariing the noise ,opel vectra (vauxhall) nice motors these ,if noise stops in 5th then it could be the gearbox like the layshaft needle bearings caused by low or no oil in the gearbox ,remember 5th gear doesnt use the layshaft its on the end of the mainshaft behind the cover next to the wheel arch

Wont go into 5th gear


HI,IF YOU TT GOES INTO ALL THE GEARS WITHOUT CATCHING OR HOOKING,THEN I SUSPECT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM INSIDE THE GEARBOX WITH EITHER THE SYNCHRO RING OR HUB OR THE BEARING ON THE SLIDE SHAFT MIGHT BE SEIZED.ALSO CHECK IF THERE IS NO FORIEGN OBJECT STUCK AT YOUR GEAR LINKAGE CABLES ON TOP OF YOUR GEARBOX.ANDY

5th gear doesn't lock


5th gear is gone, it'll be cheaper to find a good second hand one with a waranty than to get your one fixed sorry to say. The inside of gearboxes are only a place for gearbox specialists and they arent cheap unless you know someone.
