BMWs in the 3 Series and 5 Series that come with the 5-speed ZF transmission commonly experience problems with torque converter delamination. Drivers will notice signs of this problem when the car appears to shudder or misfire at around 40-50km/h.
This BMW transmission problem needs to be repaired as soon as the first signs are noticed. If you drive until the converter lining actually fails, it can destroy the entire pump assembly in the transmission. This will require a complete reconditioning of the automatic transmission.
BMW drivers are cautioned that it is better to spend a little now, rather than a lot later.
Apart from the problem with the torque converter delaminating, these 5-speed transmissions commonly suffer breakage of the D/G cylinder. If this breaks, the car loses reverse gear. This automatic transmission problem is another that requires a total transmission overhaul to repair.

you could have a faulty sensor or a loose connection to said sensor. your trans control module needs to be checked by a diagnostic scan tool at a shop there they can check the module and see if there is a fault in you drive train. i doubt it's an internal problem with the trans....please rate this....thanks

The first thing to do is put the front tires on the back and see if there is a difference.It could be a bad tire,or a balance problem.There could be worn front end parts and that will show up as movement in the wheel by moving the tires back and forth.worn tie rods or ball joints can cause a vibration.If the vibration is when the brakes are applied,then the cause is most likely a warped rotor.Check the temperature of the front rims and if one is much hotter than the other there could be a sticking caliper,which will cause the rotor to heat up and cause a vibration.

Hi there.
Well because its a auto box you could have a band or pump problem which is in the gear box and is bathed in auto matic fluid oil and that could be your problem as the bands do wear down fast on a lot of cars and BMW with there power that could be you.
So take it to a auto box people and get it checked out.

Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only
genuine items as replacement as non-genuine are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. This results in the fault codes not cancelling out.
