The 5-speed automatic transmission ZF5HP19 (with ./FL ../FLA modifications) - is considered to be one of the most popular automatic transmissions in the repair industry. Although this transmission was replaced by no less popular ZF6HP26 - 6HP19, this 5-speed unit is still widely used and repaired.

It should be noted that the popularity of this transmission among repair specialists has nothing to do with its quality, on the contrary, this efficient transmission was installed on extremely durable cars. It is the case when good cars get a good transmission. First 5HP19 units were introduced in 1995 on front-wheel and all-wheel drive Audi. These gear shifting solutions were designed on the basis of 4-speed 4HP18 and 5-speed 5HP18 (thus, most of components in these transmissions are identical). The main peculiarity of 5HP19 is higher torque in comparison with 5HP18 and that it can be paired with engines up to 4 litres. The FL version of this transmission was designed for the line-up of FWD models from Audi-Volkswagen. The 5HP19FLА transmission is designed for 4WD cars with V6 engines. The 5HP19 unit found application in rear-driven BMW cars. According to VAG classification, ZF 5HP19 transmission is also known as 01L or 01V (for some vehicles).

Technical issues and repair guidelines

The repair kit of gaskets and seals for BMW is the most popular kit ordered for this transmission. The kit of frictions is also included in a standard order for this transmission.

The operational resource of this transmission before the first overhaul is significantly higher than standard 120,000 miles, but this parameter heavily depends on operating conditions. This reliable transmission can endure operation under severe conditions and heavy loads, but oil starvation will have a negative impact on its operability.

The torque converter of this transmission is one of the most frequently repaired units. This torque converter is one of the first converters with early introduced ( 3-rd speed) forced lock-up mechanism, which damages the friction lining. The pump cover bushing is one of the most frequently replaced elements.

As for friction discs in the 5HP19 transmission, in most cases repair specialists have to replace discs of the first "С" package near the pump. The replacement of friction components is always accompanied by replacement of sealing rings as the wear-out of these rings leads to burning of friction packages.

The pressure solenoid (EDS-1 EPC) is loaded more in comparison with solenoids, therefore it works out its resource earlier.
