BMW Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is constantly twice the price of a fluid change due to the amount of time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from the cooler lines and substitute parts of your transmission. A BMW transmission flush also uses about 10 quarts of fluid to completely clean and flush out the system.

How do you know if you need a Transmission Fluid Change or Transmission Flush?

A transmission flush is only crucial if your system contains dirt or debris. If the fluid is extremely dark or contains different sediments, we would recommend a complete system flush instead of just exchanging the fluid.

BMW Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will constantly require different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are constantly thinner and are constantly red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and different compounds paramount to lubricate the gearbox and different components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is different.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is very different. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be replenished more continuously. If you don't change your BMW transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and alternative corrosive material spread throughout the extensive factors of your BMW. You should continuously check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In bountiful cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be exceedingly laborious to do. Call or visit Richmond BMW Midlothian for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
