Transmission Fluid ServiceI think it is finally time to get it straight. The fluid BMW uses is also known as lifetime fluid. First let me explain why: In general, transmission Manufacturer’s for BMW’s are better built. Its either a zf or gm transmission depending on what model u have. 3 series commonly uses gm and 5 and 7 series uses the zf. I believe the lifetime fluid was introduced back in 1999 as I can remember a synthetic formula of transmission fluid was used. This fluid is less prone to chemical and viscosity break down compared to conventional oil. It was 3 to 4 times more expensive and it was suitable for up to 100,000 miles. This is why it was called lifetime but I think it should be called “long-life”. When working at the dealership we always had requests to change out the transmission fluid. It was recommended as a no-no because due to liability reasons, if the transmission had shifting issues in the future, the dealership would be responsible for it.

Oil ChangeDuring the harsh New England weather, these plastic transmission pans are susceptible to major temperature changes. Over the period, the pan itself tends to develop microscopic cracks. Becuase the transmission is a sealed unit, fluid levels may not be easily accessible to the owner of the car. Symptoms of a leaky pan may include harsh shifting issues or maybe some wet spot on your driveway floor. So it is recommend to just have the pan inspected every oil change. The pan is rather expensive, the pan is aprox $300.00, which includes a bulit in filter and the adapter sleeve, which is approximately $30.00. Transmission fluid is around $30.00 per liter using the orginal factory zf fluid. takes aprox 5 liters.
Fuel Injection Service/RepairI told Alvin that I was looking for more throttle response from the car. I told him that my place was to add a CAI and Dinan Stage 2 software and Cold Air Intake and immediately, his first thought was the same fuel injection cleaning that my dealer offered for about $180. His price was close to half that, and now my 03 540i6 is running like it never has before. Interestingly enough, I am now able to spin the wheels in 1st gear and chirp between 2nd & 3rd!!!
