The N52 requires a coolant flush to change the OFH gasket.....not like the E46 where you just moved the PS pump to the side, remove the radiator ran, take off the oil filter housing, and replace the gasket.

Also the mechatronic sealing sleeve is a common failure on ATs. Not sure which one though...ZF or GM.
