525i trans problem, speed sensor (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ 5-series (E34) Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Markus Shelby on August 27, 2001 at 23:55:28:

During stop and go driving, very warmed up, auto trans will very occasionally slip in 4th gear. After some time trans program comes up on the dash computer readout. If I shut off car it resets and all is fine for a while.

I was told speed sensor on top of transmission is tripping a fault warning. There might also be a 2nd fault warning for 4th gear clutch????

Dealer wants $450 to fix speed sensor, says need to lower trans and remove exhaust system. Does anyone have any experience with this. I would like to buy the part ($96) and do the repairs myself.

Would appreciate any help. Email if possible... [email protected]
