Questions About 1993 BMW 525i’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your BMW? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a BMW 525i? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. 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 525i is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my 525i transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1993 525i’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
