BMW Company Recent History

BMW has an outsized reputation for being on the cutting edge of technology in the automotive field. This was garnered from their “New Class” of cars that were released in the 1970s and continued through the 1980s. Since 2002, BMW has focussed less on keeping value in the car from sturdy construction and reliability. As more expensive technology has taken over the design process, in addition to becoming more integrated into the systems of the vehicle; BMW has lowered their emphasis on long-term reliability and so all current BMW drivers have a harder, more expensive experience owning these vehicles. We can help you trust your Bimmer’s reliability by keeping tabs on all of your BMWs systems every time you come in for service.

Repairing a BMW ZF 6hp26 Transmission

Worn bushing causes wear in E piston

Piston seal deterioration.

When the 6hp26 is removed we always have to look for greenish leaks from crank seal and upper coolant passage. This one was leaking from the upper passage.

Mechatronics seal in the 6hp26 and 6hp19 will crack with age and miles and cause the trans to leak pressure. The common characteristic of this is when you shift into drive or reverse it immediately shifts itself back into park

These two pics show wear from mileage and improper service regimens.

This E Clutch was in a lower mileage 6hp26 that had been run low on fluid from a leak that was left unattended. If you service with us regularly, we catch these leaks early so you won't need expensive services like these, as early as shown in this case.

The pan on the left is for non-stop/start transmissions. The stop/start transmissions, on the right have a reservoir that holds fluid and pressure and keeps fluid moving through the transmission when the vehicle stops.

This is my first BMW, and I was to the point where I was either going to trade in my car or repair it as my check engine light was on, and I was due for an inspection. As a woman, I often feel overwhelmed when it comes to car repairs, but after reading reviews from several shops, I decided to go with Lone Star Bavarian to service my car. The facility was clean and welcoming, and the women at the front desk were friendly, understanding, and attentive. They were able to fix all of the problems with my car, and I was back on the road within a couple of days. They also noticed additional issues that I was aware of but did not pressure me into fixing them, instead offering a recommendation. I particularly appreciated that my car was stored indoors, under surveillance, rather than left outside. Additionally, they provided me with a loaner car, which was a major advantage, as I couldn't be left without transportation. The loaner car was in excellent condition. When I picked up my car, it looked brand new, I fell in love with my car all over again! It was thoroughly cleaned and very well taken care of and drives like the first day I bought it. I was so impressed with the quality of care my car received that I will definitely recommend Lone Star Bavarian to everyone I know. Thank you so much!

I absolutely love my BMW X5, although I encountered some problems with the diesel exhaust fluid tank. I called and I was able to quickly schedule a same-day diagnosis. Trent provided a detailed explanation of the necessary repairs, and the prices were quite reasonable, especially with the military discount offered. Thanks to Trent and his outstanding team, I was back on the road within twenty-four hours.
