Why is Your 2016 228i’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your 228i’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. BMW 228i transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore BMW 228i transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 228i isn’t working at all.

Questions About 2016 BMW 228i’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a BMW? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 228i’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 228i transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your BMW 228i transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
