ECS Tuning: BMW Automatic Transmission Service DIY
Automatic Service Kits Available At:
Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when
performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced, the automatic
transmission fluid will break down, causing the valve body and filter to
become contaminated with deposits and sludge. This will lead to poor
shifting, slipping, and ultimately transmission replacement.

Proper service and repair procedures are vital to the safe, reliable
operation of all motor vehicles as well as the personal safety of those
performing the repairs. Standard safety procedures and precautions
(including use of safety goggles and proper tools and equipment) should be
followed at all times to eliminate the possibility of personal injury or

BMW X5 E53 Common Issues: BMTroubleU
Common issues to look for under a bmw x5 e53, includes a look at the
automatic gearbox plug sleeve seal removal and replacement, castor bushes,
cv boots, and charge hose seals. PLEASE NOTE I NO LONGER DO REQUESTS AS I
DONT WORK FOR BMW ANY MORE BUT IM STILL HAPPY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.
G'day guys, welcome back to BMTroubleU. Recently we did a part on resetting
E53 service lights. I thought I'd get you in underneath the car today and
check out a few other things ive found with this particular car. This is
the gearbox, ive had the pan off obviously. You can see all the mechatronic
bits and bobs in there. Now the reason ive got the pan off is because a
reoccuring theme amongst all these mechatronic gearboxes- that includes
E90's, 1 series, 5 series, a whole lot in the BMW range, is the plug sleeve
seal up here (0:36) alright, that always leaks (very regularly leaks ok).
So ive got it out today. Now the reason ive got the pan off is to get that
out the white tab here, usually in this same area on alll gearboxes, just
gotta pull that down before you can take that plug sleeve seal out. Ive got
the new one here (0:58). Youve gotta have that little locator down the
bottom, thats on this model. Im pretty sure thats how it is on the other
ones as well, just down the bottom there. Just make sure you note that when
you get it out, make sure its down the bottom there. Its got a
corresponding locator on the plug just here (1:20). If you can see that.
Now a couple of other things while we're under this E53 to look for on your
car...just get my flathead. I always look at castor bushes on E53's-
always. They're a heavy car and they like to fong out these castor bushes.
These are the castor bushes (1:38). Youve got your tie-rods (1:41), your
swaybars (1:43) and camber bushes (1:45), they never... hardly ever go.
I've barely ever seen any of them bugger up, but these castor bushes....
these ones in particular are fine. If you can see that (1:57) thats fine,
theres no splitting in that. Check up the top as well, I cant quite get my
camera in there but check top and bottom. These ones are fine, but when
they go you'll get brake shudder, you will get a big noise.... especially
say youre on a flat surface, just put it in drive, let the brake off and
get it up to whatever top speed it is at idle and then just jab on the
brakes. And as soon as you jab on the brakes you'll hear the whole body
just go BOOM and you'll go 'Oh, yea castor bushes' no problems. No need to
get underneath it (most times) order them straight up. You can order just
these bushes and press them in with any press youve got in the workshop, or
if youre a home fella you can take these out its not too hard... down the
end here (2:41) you might need a separator tool, alright. Take the arm out,
the complete arm and take it down to where ever they have a press and
they'll press them in for you. Other issues you get on these E53's
obviously cause its four wheel drive its got front CV shafts. CV boots
pretty regularly, i mean we havent had many of them recently, but i have
done quite a few of those E53 cv boots. Alright, finally i havent got the
belly covering off but turbo oil (you
can see a leak there (3:22), that might even be one there) from the charge
hoses right through the front bumper here in the Intercooler regularly go the seals in
them. Ive been told they blow a bit of oil as per normal so dont about it
worry too much. If you get bad leaks check your pcv obviously and your turbo seals, see if theyre blown or not.
Thats all i can think about at the present moment, if you have any other
questions or comments please feel free and we'll check you on the next

Part 2: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid & Filter On A BMW/MINI
blog.BavAuto.com -- Most people think that because BMW and MINI call their
transmission fluids "Lifetime" or "Extended Service" it doesn't have to be
changed. Not true. To get the most out of your transmission and avoid a
costly, catastrophic failure, you should change the fluid and filter every
50,000 miles. Watch Bavarian Otto demonstrate how to do this on a BMW E39
(5 series 97 thru 03). You'll find the specific fluid and filter your
BMW/MINI needs in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.
