What Does Your BMW 525iT Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. BMW 525iT transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood.

1993 BMW 525iT Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a BMW? 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. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my 525iT's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your BMW 525iT’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your BMW, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
