What Does Your BMW 525xi Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. BMW 525xi transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let BMW 525xi transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your 525xi at all.

2006 BMW 525xi 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.
  • How much can my BMW tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your 525xi towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 525xi's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your BMW 525xi’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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
