Unhappy e46 330xd Automatic Transmission Problem

e46 330xd 2003 make, 217.000 KMs

1- It started almost a month ago, while automatic gearbox shifting from 4 to 5, around 115-120 km/h and RPM around 1800-2100 car starts shaking strongly, when i push the gas little bit more RPM jumps to 2500 and shaking stops.

2- It was like this almost a month and yesterday suddenly i saw a warning "exclamation mark in a gear" in yellow color.

and even though it looked like on D, car didnt response to gas. I stopped immediately. stopped the engine took the keys out. after 2 minutes i started again, everything seemed fine, I drive just a few minutes then same thing happened. I pulled over and called the towing car...

Service couldnt figure it out so far, any ideas???

A friend of mine had the same issue. After replacing all the rubbers, he solved the problem by replacing the automatic gearbox.
Sorry man.
