My 89 735il with 150K miles shudders at low speeds when pushed only after driving it long distances at high speeds. Have replaced filter and fluid with no change.....course didn't change out fluid in torque converter..thinking about draining it again...also what's the model number for transmission. Rebuild kits available.
