Questions About 1994 BMW 318i’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 318i’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 318i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1994 318i’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your BMW. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
