1999 BMW 323i Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 it is. 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.
  • When should I have my 323i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
