Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is accessible.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is particularly different. Automatic transmissions generate a few more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be interchanged more typically.

In common cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be extremely difficult to do. Call or visit Plaza BMW for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
