2012 BMW X5 Transmission Filter

Changing your 2012 BMW X5 transmission filter isn't as beneficial as substitute filters in your vehicle.

Your 2012 BMW X5 will also contain a gasket, pickup tube, and rubber seal which may all need to be interchanged along with the filter.

2012 BMW X5 Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is frequently twice the value of a fluid change due to the amount of time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from the cooler lines and other parts of your transmission. A 2012 BMW X5 transmission flush also uses about 10 quarts of fluid to completely clean and flush out the system.

How do you know if you need a Transmission Fluid Change or Transmission Flush?

A transmission flush is only critical if your system contains dirt or debris. If the fluid is exceptionally dark or contains disparate sediments, we would recommend a complete system flush instead of just exchanging the fluid.

2012 BMW X5 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

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

Not only are the fluids disparate between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is very disparate. 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 X5 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and disparate corrosive material spread throughout the convenient components of your 2012 BMW X5. 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 hard to do. Call or visit Plaza BMW for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
