2006 BMW 7 Series 750Li 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)


My 2006 BMW 750LI; I shif the gear into Drive, it will automaticaly shifs to Park, I shift to Reverse it automatically shifs to Park, it will not let you drive off, it give me a message, drive moderelty, I have sat in parking lots and
gas stations for 30 min to an hour before I was able to shift it into Drive, and drive away.

I've had BMW Mech. look at it and they say faulty codes come us and they cleared them, had a 2nd Mec. they said the same thing. A month latter its stats up agin.
Is any one else having this issues and how to repair it?

That is ridiculous. The problem is a $ 12.00 part that is between the Mechtronics unit and transmission. It is a seal that cracks over time those creating a vacuum leak. The part is a bridge seal adapter. You can get more info at www.bimmerfest.com
