Questions About 1995 BMW 318i’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my BMW's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a BMW? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.

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.
