Customer Question
My transmission continues to...

My transmission continues to give me faults and failures, then just runs normal?

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

2 months ago we changed the housing because there was a leak, and the transmission was refilled

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your BMW?

2012 750Li

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 750li yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I hooked up with a shop years ago who are pretty good, but I have not had anything done to the tranny other than the pan change out

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I took the car to the dealership a year ago and they said I needed a new transmission

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I don't get any codes I get a Transmission Failure Drive Moderately. Occasionally a Drivetrain Malfunction message\
Could it be related to the electronic modules ?
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 2 months ago
You have not had the faults scanned?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
this 26 bucks are in addition to the 26 I have already paid?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It just dawned on me, I had called you guys before, and determined I would not get ripped off again.. Damn Idiot that I Iam, fell for the pitch AGAIN!!! My fault.... Never again
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 2 months ago

I'm sorry?

Ask Your Own BMW Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Sorry is not the right answer, more of a shameful response is what is required, maning up is what I call it. Enjoy the 26
BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 2 months ago

I'm sorry is an expression of confusion, I am not sure what you are referring to. You have gone off of the theme of the question and I am not following.
