Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
If you have just purchased a new vehicle with factory recommended transmission fluid and filter service interval, or are a long time owner of a vehicle, you should opt to do regular transmission maintenance and up-keep. BMW now promotes their transmission fluids as lifetime fluid, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t perform fluid and filter replacement on your vehicle, otherwise BMW wouldn’t have made the fluid and filter available to purchase. Most manufacturers recommend replacing it every 50,000 to 60,000 miles. JMP Autowerkz’s qualified service technicians can drain/flush, refill and replace the filter when applicable on your vehicle’s transmission.
