BMW M3 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

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

Not only are the fluids contrasting between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is highly contrasting. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more mostly. If you don't change your BMW M3 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and distinct corrosive material spread throughout the exciting parts of your BMW M3. You should mostly check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In many cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be extremely complicated to do. Call or visit Plaza BMW for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
