rothwem,

Your car is still running great? no more problem?
Did you use the BMW t-case oil?

I have the same problem so I will try that before a t-case swap.

Thank you!

fluid and reset made my junk smooth again @ 120K miles.
now at 137 and it's still working fine.

I used the bmw fluid, but I have learned there's a ravenol fluid that's the same, for about half the cost.

Hey, I had to sell the car in the spring because I hurt my left knee and driving manual was painful. I did talk to the previous owner a couple months ago though and he said it was running great, didn't mention any transfer case issues.

Its a $50 potential fix vs a $4000 fix, I'd change the fluid if I were you.

Thank you! Did you reset with inpa? I don't see a "calibrate" option in inpa. I will swap the oil to begin and see if I need a calibration.

I used ISTA. It's under the service menu IIRC.

ISTA is just easier to accomplish maintenance things in.
