X5: My transmission seemed to hesitate earlier. My trans fail

Customer Question

My transmission seemed to hesitate earlier. My trans fail light came on once months ago. Is there a correlation and can low coolant effect the transmission performance??

There most likely isn't a correlation between the transmission hesitation today and the warning light coming on months go or a low coolant. The transmission can be affected by heat so a lot of heat can adversely affect the shifting.
