BMW 528i Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will normally require different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are normally thinner and are normally red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and other compounds necessary 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 different.

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 frequently. If you don't change your BMW 528i transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and disparate corrosive material spread throughout the necessary components of your BMW 528i. You should frequently check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In numerous cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be exceedingly difficult to do. Call or visit Plaza BMW for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
