Symptoms like clutch slip?

Recommended Posts

I was talking to a fellow E60 owner last week. He says he's getting what you might describe as clutch slip on a manual gearbox, but this is an auto. He reports that this seems to happen in colder weather, and when setting off from cold. The car apparently sets off in 1st (maybe 2nd?), but as he accelerates away and the box changes up the revs don't climb steadily as you would expect, they fluctuate up and down a little depending on throttle opening. Once the box has warmed up it behaves normally it seems. I've read one or two posts about this somewhere else which imply that it could be the TC taking a while to lock up. He's concerned that this could be the box giving notice to quit. Any thoughts folks?
