Question by ufredu posted 6 months 3 weeks ago in BMW

Hello my car bmw e39 525 tds 1996, when im in second gear for example and i floor it to 4-5k rpms and change to 3rd gear the car wont go past 1-2k rpms even with my foot down the accelerator.<br />
The car if i keep it under 2k rpms goes well with no problem only when i rev it high and change gears this problem happens.
