In Reply to: 94 540i auto trans failing, looking at huge $$$ posted by Pierre on December 11, 2000 at 12:15:25:
2nd and fifth gear are slipping and the pump is cavitating noticably. My local tech and Heishman are quoting $5000 to $7000 for a reman trans from BMW (out of Illinois, BTW). Does anybody know of a TRUSTWORTHY transmission shop in the DC metro area that can handle the ZF 5HP30 automatics? I'd rather rebuild my own for less $$$$ than spend $5000.
Any help really would be appreciated...
