1992 bmw 525i transmission stall on hard stops and turning curves

A used transmission module was installed to get out of limp mode. The transmission changed gear fine but, stopping and turning curves it would stall and slam back into gear when accelerating after stop. I just installed the used module and nothing else was done.

The first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level as some of your symptoms are classic for low fluid levels.

Pretty major problem here. My '92 Chrysler Imperial entered the "safe mode" for it's transaxle, then proceeded to stall on the next stop. It now will not start again. I need to fix this ASAP.


it is in limp mode because of a problem in the transmission
you will have to run the fault codes to determine the area of failure
areas to check for will be TCM , turbine speed sensor, servos, pump pressure sensors
take it to an accredited auto transmission specialist shop
it appears that the transmission control module doesn't know what ratio to select so at this point I would be wary of "new box" comments until the reason can be properly explained

The automatic transmission pops out of drive om my 1991 BMW 525i


Low fluid will not cause it to do that, If it pops out of gear you got a (Serios) Problem i hate to tell you, End on a (BMW) count on paying $2500 end up to have it (Rebuilt) Thats what you get for buying a (Over) price toy.

Transmission fault sign came on the screen, after slow start because of dying battery. Only drive to and from work, 11 miles each way. Car is 2004 525i with 63k miles. I bought it in 2007 with only 26k...


Sounds like it went into "limp mode" when your battery went low. BMW or any good specialty shop needs to reset your computer. (they don't reset themselves) most will do it for free. NOTE: if it does come back on, it's notifying you there is a pending issue that occurred coincidently.

How do I add tranny fluid to my 1992 BMW 525i


If there is a dipstick, add the proper fluid to the dipstick fillter tube. If there is no dipstick, there are drain plugs on the side that will have to be removed to check the level, at normal operating temperature.

Maybe check autozone.com for further information. There are two brands of transmission used in the BMWs of that era. ZF and GM transmissions. There are also a number of types of transmission used in the BMW 525i vehicles.

Check online for a service bulletin regarding the automatic transmission used in your vehicle, or check with the dealer.

I found a service bulletin that's in black and white, but it was not pastable to the fixya.com website.
Sorry, about that.

Good luck on finding a solution to adding transmission fluid to your 1992 BMW 525i vehicle.

Adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.


On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.
