We need to get a scan tool hooked up to the car and retrieve the trouble codes for the light. The lamp coming on is the cars way of telling you to get the trans looked at as soon as you can. By the sounds of it you most likely have an electrical, or a sensor concern. Since most of the time it shifts ok. Most of the time when something is broken inside it is broken all the time (most of the time).

But for me to be able to give you a pinpointed diagnosis without seeing the car for myself and also knowing the codes is impossible. But either way if you do not have much mechanical ability then this would be best to leave to the transmission pros. But if you would like to get back ahold of me with the code I would help you as much.

Keep in touch.

My transmission has a clunk sound coming from it rite as you start to accelerate and i found metal shavings in the pan any ideas of wht this could be

metal shavings indicate mechanical failure of the internals
you don't mention the make and model of the transmission but from experience some transmission have a badly designed band servo housing the is prone to breaking at the adjustment area
this gives a clunk as the bands are engaged , band slippage and drops metal into the pan
The fix is generally in car and relatively cheap
pull the pan and check for cracks in the internal castings around the band adjustment screw area
If it is more, have it diagnosed by an accredited specialist transmission shop and get a detailed quote for repairs before you accept the " tranny is s***** answer , need a new one" answer

X5 "Trans.FailsafeProg" message. Keeps coming on

1) How old is your battery? The computer that controls the transmission is really sensitive to voltage. Many folks have reported that their first indication of a failing battery was transmission problems.
2) Next most common problem I have heard of in these transmissions is the temperature sensor in the transmission. The way to check it is to have a shop read out the temperature reported by the computer. If the car is warmed up and the computer still thinks that the transmission is cold, that is the problem.

Gauges work fine when engine's started, then oil gauge falls below zero and warning light comes on saying "Check gauges," so I check the oil and transmission fluid levels and these are fine but...

start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

Transmission fluid leak

Most likely point of leakage is where dipstick tube is inserted into trans. there is an "O" ring that can be replaced. If that is the source of leakage, remove tube and replace "O" ring. Dpistick tube must be secured so it doesn't move around once installed. This does sound like a warrantee issue and would take installer very little time to correct. Good Luck
