With any manual transmission you shouldnt just go from 6th to 4th bc it is bad for the transmission, if i am in 5th gear and i want to go into 3rd i always go from 5th to 4th to 3rd as a preventative maintenance. If you have a defected transmission you should be able to get it warranted by the bmw dealership you bought if from though.

Passat hard downshift from 5th to 4th


This can be caused by a defective valve body or sticking check ball or other worn parts. If the transmission has never been serviced with new fluid do that 1st.

The transmission is hanging up in 2nd gear and not shifting to 3rd, 4th etc. It does not downshift to 1st when the car comes to a stop. I can manually downshift to 1st, upshift to 2nd, but it will not...


The absence of 3rd and 4th is imposed by the transmission computer as a precautionary measure. The system has detected fault and rather than risk doing any greater damage has provided a limp home service. It needs to have a transmission specialist look it over and read the error codes. How do your transmission fluid levels look?

My 2006 bmw 750li is showing transmission fault


hi, this could be your battery loosing voltage, check it with a volt meter to see if it reads between 12v - 12.5 v if it is low it might need replacing, you could also check your alternator to see if it is charging correctly you will find your car will be stuck in either 3rd or 4th gear ( limp home mode ) hope this helps please vote thanks

bad design flaw with the transmission kick down cable make sure you are in OD first but if you are then this cable is adjustable it is next to the throttle cable and tells the trans when to downshift only adjust very little increments as this can easily blow your tanni as you may already know this feeling

Transmission computer software update


Your dealer is shooting you straight. Actually the software update is out. I just had my wife's 2006 R350 software updated yesterday and so far the abrupt downshift has not happened.
