Transmission Service

Your transmission is one of the major components of your BMW. Whether it is automatic or manually shifted, it is an absolutely critical component in putting your BMWs power down to the road. Maintenance of your transmission is equally important for the heath of your BMW.

For manual transmission equipped BMWs, there is no filter and no pump, the fluid is circulated by the gears of the transmission. Automatic transmissions will also produce more heat than a manual. Manual transmissions do not require a full service and do not have a computer to store fault codes, but the fluid still needs to be replaced at regular intervals. Strictly BMW feels that it is very important to change the fluid and or in your transmission. Every 30,000-60,000 miles (depending on year and model, please see your service advisor for details) it is a good idea to have the fluid replaced, we have a fluid that meets or exceeds all of the chemical requirements of the factory Lifetime Fluid.

Automatic transmission cars require full services to be performed, which includes replacement of the transmission oil filter and the pan gasket. On certain transmissions (again, please see your service advisor), there are two oil pans, one of which is not normally removed for a service, but may be recommended, depending on how long it has been since the last service. Automatic transmissions require a very specific operating temperature for the fluid to be changed, as well as a very specific fill range of fluid. Every 30,000-60,000 miles (depending on year and model, please see your service advisor for details) it is a good idea to have the transmission service, we have a fluid that meets or exceeds all of the chemical requirements of the factory Lifetime Fluid.
