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.
