2012 BMW X3 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will mostly require precise fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are frequently thinner and are mostly red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and other compounds basic to lubricate the gearbox and other components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is precise.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is extremely different. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more normally. If you don't change your 2012 BMW X3 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and back-up corrosive material spread throughout the important components of your 2012 BMW X3. You should normally check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In several cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be exceedingly troublesome to do. Call or visit Plaza BMW for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
