A transmission flush is frequently twice the price of a fluid change due to the amount of arduous time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes needless fluid from the cooler lines and other components of your crucial transmission.

BMW 530i Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will frequently require an assortment of different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are ordinarily thinner and are frequently red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is more burly and thicker due to additives and other essential compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and other parts. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is greatly different.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is exceptionally different. Automatic transmissions generate ample heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more usually. If you don't change your BMW 530i transmission fluid, your transmission will have hazardous broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the essential parts of your BMW 530i. You should usually 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 exceptionally difficult to do. Call or visit Nalley BMW of Decatur for more details if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
