transmission Gone bad

Asked by Sep 03, 2016 at 05:18 PM about the 2006 BMW 7 Series 750Li

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car will only go into reverse, do you
think the transmission is gone bad?

2 Answers


Not bad in replace, but repairable. Maybe just the reverse solenoid is faulty. The trans need to be diagnosed by a trans shop or independent BMW shop to verify.


I have an 06 760i. I used to downshift with the paddles when I came over a large bridge to my area. I wore out the 4th and 5th gear friction plates and then the care would not go into gear. BMW wanted $10k to repair. I got it done in Los Angeles for $5000. The entire valve body has to be replaced and it retails from BMW for $3000+.
