2015 BMW 228i Transmission Service

Why is Your 2015 228i’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your 228i’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. BMW 228i transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore BMW 228i transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your 228i’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2015 BMW 228i’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 228i towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 228i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 228i's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your BMW 228i’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your BMW's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
