X5 bucking like a bronco


Got an issue with my '05 4.4 X5. When I start her up in the morning and place her in reverse to back out of the garage, as soon as i start going back the truck starts to 'buck' back and forth. It has done this maybe once a week for several months but always goes back to normal after about 5 to 10 seconds.

Yesterday it did it again, but this time the 'check engine light' came on. It flashed for a few seconds and now it is on solid. Anybody experience this condition before?

flashing engine lights are BAD, and means you should stop driving.

What was the problem? (i bet something in the 4x4 system)
Many Thanks
