Questions About 1988 BMW 325iX’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my BMW's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. 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 load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 325iX’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 325iX transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your BMW 325iX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
