2011 BMW 328i Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my BMW's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a BMW 328i? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 328i towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 328i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my 328i's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your BMW 328i’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your BMW's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my BMW 328i? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your BMW 328i, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
