2012 BMW X5 - Jerks

car jerks or bucks then when I give it gas it does not want to go, just creeps along have to pull over and shut car off

Is the check engine light on? I’d guess it is. Have it towed to a service center for diagnosis.

No it’s not on. It says transmission malfunction on the screen.

Then you need a transmission shop and it does not need to be a BMW dealer but avoid chain store operations.

Thank you for your time!
