1987 BMW 325i Transmission Q&A

  • 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. 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 it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 325i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 325i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1987 325i’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.
