BMW Transmission Fluid Service in Sarasota, FL

When To Replace The Transmission Fluid On A BMW 

BMWs are performance vehicles; as such, their components are intricately designed, perhaps none more than the transmission. It has been precision-engineered to handle the horsepower and acceleration needs of this super-fast make of car. It is recommended that you make an appointment with your qualified local mechanic to have your transmission fluid changed every 50,000 miles. 

At Jesse’s Garage, your top Sarasota auto repair experts, we will assess the color of the fluid and the smell. Transmission fluid should have a pinkish-clear hue. If there is a burnt smell at all to it, it’s time to have your transmission fluid replaced. And at the same time, one of our certified auto specialists can replace your transmission filter. 

How To Check The Transmission Fluid Level On Your BMW

If you are having issues with your transmission, perhaps the transmission malfunction drive moderately error message light on your BMW has come on, or your vehicle has gone into limp mode, the first thing you should check before bringing your vehicle into a local trusted mechanic is the automatic transmission fluid level. If the transmission fluid level is even a little bit low, it will affect the performance of your BMW. 

To check the level of your transmission fluid on your BMW, follow these steps:

  1. Go for a short drive in your BMW, about fifteen minutes. This will warm up the transmission fluid to the appropriate level of around 100 degrees (F). You want to make sure to shift through all the gears while you are driving.
  2. Put your BMW in park on a flat, even surface and leave it idling. 
  3. Carefully remove the drain plug from the transmission oil pan. If the levels are where they should be a little bit of oil will leak out, if nothing comes out, your levels are low, and you should make an appointment with your local BMW expert mechanic.
