ECS Tuning: BMW Automatic Transmission Service DIY
Automatic Service Kits Available At:
Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when
performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced, the automatic
transmission fluid will break down, causing the valve body and filter to
become contaminated with deposits and sludge. This will lead to poor
shifting, slipping, and ultimately transmission replacement.
This tutorial is provided as a courtesy by ECS Tuning.
Proper service and repair procedures are vital to the safe, reliable
operation of all motor vehicles as well as the personal safety of those
performing the repairs. Standard safety procedures and precautions
(including use of safety goggles and proper tools and equipment) should be
followed at all times to eliminate the possibility of personal injury or
improper service which could damage the vehicle or compromise its safety.

Part 1: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid & Filter On A BMW/MINI
blog.BavAuto.com -- Most people think that because BMW and MINI call their
transmission fluids "Lifetime" or "Extended Service" it doesn't have to be
changed. Not true. To get the most out of your transmission and avoid a
costly, catastrophic failure, you should change the fluid and filter every
50,000 miles. Watch Bavarian Otto demonstrate how to do this on a BMW E39
(5 series 97 thru 03). You'll find the specific fluid and filter your
BMW/MINI needs in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.
