Q:
Do I need a new transmission? on 2002 BMW 745Li

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
In the morning the car will not go in drive or reverse, until warned up. Sometimes at red lights, will not go. I have to turn the engine off and restart. I have read that other owners have had similar proplems. Please help, Thanks

Servicing the transmission may be the first and cheapest place to start. In servicing the transmission the condition of the oil will be checked, the oil can be checked for debris, the filter and magnets at the bottom of the oil pan can be inspected, and on a test drive afterward the shifting of the transmission can be checked to see if the transmission may have further mechanical or electrical problems. Those transmissions are bothersome and the fluid is not cheap. It's good insurance to change the oil/service the transmission every 30,000 miles.
