Questions About 1997 BMW 528i’s Transmission

  • 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. 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 528i? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 528i’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my 528i transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your BMW 528i’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.
