A5S390R - GM5LE40 - Steptronic - "D" Mode running 60 MPH...
got my new 330xiA with the well known A5S390R (GM5LE040) Automatic-Gearbox.
I've got the Problem, that my Gearbox is running at 60 MPH in Gear "5" with nearly 2000 UPM. If i want to drive faster, i press down the pedal and the gearbox is doing some .....!$%§" - the torque-converter "locked" an the engine must speedup with nearly 1950 UPM... that this will never be fast...
The Only Way to accellerate faster is: press down the gas pedal like a elefant (but without kick-down!) and the gearbox switched to gear "4"
The automatic transmission is shifting nicely and i've done a hole oil service with 6,5l atf oil at 85.000 km (now 86500 km...)
Is that "normal" ?!
You can use the S mode and do manual shifting.
The only way to get faster acceleration is pedal to the metal, forcing steptronic to kick down the tranny or change from D-M and push forward the lever to manually kick down the gear to 3rd gear and accelerate beyond 3500 rpm for passing power.
In fact, what ticks me off is at a traffic light, I'd have to throttle till 1950rpm to get the car moving in steptronics. As if hill assist is always on, enough throttle to release hill assist. I don't think 2004 e46 325s have hill assist on steptronic, doesn't make sense.
