Questions About 1989 BMW 325i’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 325i’s towing capacity. 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.
  • Does my 325i's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
