have a 95 automatic 740i, 135K no problem miles
recently noticed that it will whine and "sorta hang"
when the tach approaches number 2
have read that is somewhat common @ this mileage and with this car,
many others have mentioned this problem in various other 7 series discussion
groups and dedicated bmw sites
the trans fluid is OK and full (was checked)
according to BMW the fluid is never to be changed, unless you're
replacing the trans itself
many people discussing the problem have changed the fluid
@ 100K and the problem was resolved, several others were not so lucky
would appreciate your experience with this problem with your BMW
doesn't have to be a 7 series
I think I've resolved this problem, in that I allow the car to warm up
for about 3-4 minutes before starting to drive, no whine, no hanging whatsoever
