My Ride: E46 330xiA
Send a message via ICQ to Hageee
A5S390R - GM5LE40 - Steptronic - "D" Mode running 60 MPH...

Hello,

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" ?!
