The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms.

They're often easy to notice. BMW 525i transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let BMW 525i transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 525i isn’t working at all.

2001 BMW 525i 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 my BMW tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, 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.
  • When should I have my 525i's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your BMW 525i transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
