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.

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.
