BMW X3 Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is constantly twice the price of a fluid change due to the payment 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 contrasting parts of your transmission. A BMW X3 transmission flush also uses about 10 quarts of fluid to completely clean and flush out the system.

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

BMW X3 Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will generally require different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are typically thinner and are generally red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and back-up compounds crucial to lubricate the gearbox and back-up 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 back-up between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is very back-up. Automatic transmissions generate assorted more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more continuously. If you don't change your BMW X3 transmission fluid, your transmission will have broken metal shavings and distinct corrosive material spread throughout the tall components of your BMW X3. You should continuously 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 difficult to do. Call or visit Plaza BMW for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
