1998 BMW 323i Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 323i’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 323i's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your BMW 323i transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
