1994 BMW 318is Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 318is’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 318is is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 318is's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your BMW 318is’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.
