Warning Signs of a Failed BMW Transmission

All modern cars are now made with computerized transmissions. Of course, nothing is full proof. As sophisticated as these modern BMW transmissions can be, errors can make those gearshifts considerably less smooth. The check engine light is often one of the first telltale signs that your car is having trouble.

You might also notice some strange sounds or vibrations when something goes awry with your vehicle’s transmission. In other situations, your transmission might shift gears in unpredictable ways, resulting in uneven speeds and inconsistencies while driving. Your car may sound like it’s trying to go 100 miles per hour when it’s only traveling at 50, this is known as a transmission slipping in most cases. Additionally, there might be a few seconds delay when you shift from park to drive.

While some of these problems might seem negligible in the moment, ignoring such issues could make the situation worse, decreasing the life of your transmission over time and increasing the costs to repair.

BMW Transmission Slipping

Does your vehicle feel like it is changes gears randomly while driving? Are you experiencing struggling or a lack of acceleration? These may be signs your transmission is slipping and needs to be looked at by a certified technician. Slipping of the transmission may be accompanied by a whining sound. Any of these symptoms may require your transmission be serviced.

Rough Gear Shifting

Does your car feel like it is refusing to shift gears or is just doing so un-smoothly? Rough gear shifting can be a sign that your transmission is failing. You may hear a thud/clunk noise while attempting to shift gears as well. If your vehicle is shifting gears roughly or making odd noises it may be time to contact a local Denver transmission repair specialist.

Fluid Leaks/Stains

Noticing new fluid stains and/or leaks underneath your vehicle? The transmission is a closed system that should not leak fluid at all. Transmission fluid is typically pink/red in color but can sometimes appear brown as well. If you notice any new stains underneath your vehicle, especially a red-ish stain you should contact our local transmission services specialists.

Odd Transmission Sounds

Whining, clunking, thuds, all of these noises can be a sign your transmission is failing in your vehicle. When shifting your vehicle from Park to Drive, you may also hear the engine revving yet it doesn’t appear to get power. Any new noises that your vehicle is making could be a sign of something serious like transmission failure. Our transmission repair specialists are trained to notice all the sounds/signs of a transmission problem.

Transmission Warning Light

Your vehicle may show various “warning lights” depending on specific issues your vehicle may be experiencing. Typically other symptoms will be present. If you’re vehicle is slipping, shifting roughly, making odd noises or even has a warning light on, contact the transmission service specialists at A-Affordable Transmissions Center today.

These guys are SO great. Great job and a great price! My family and I (and even friends that I referred) drive an hour to come to them. They do great work and have excellent customer care! Even when it was closing time they were so kind and helpful, making sure I understood and was satisfied with everything, instead of just rushing me out the door. 100% recommend them!

Hello, had the transmission in my 66 Ford Fairlane rebuilt in October 2021. Nearly 2 years later still working great no leaks shifts just as nice as it did when I picked it up. Great customer service after the rebuild would totally recommend.


Take your car here. If you have any transmission issues this is the absolute best transmission shop you will find in Denver. My cars transmission lost reverse gear, and had a slew of other issues going on internally that I didn’t even know about, requiring a complete transmission rebuild. Devin was absolutely phenomenal, and let me know everything that was happening during the entire service. These guys absolutely stand by their word, and work. The diagnostic is only $90. With 250k miles, I have a rebuilt engine with 50k miles on it, and now a new, rebuilt transmission. Flawless. Another 4×4 lives another day. Drives smoother than ever. Thank you guys!

Brought my 08 pontiac grand prix for a rebuild of the transmission, car was done within two days of dropping it off and the price quoted was correct and affordable (for a transmission rebuild) the shop is very professional and knowledgeable also friendly and don’t make you feel dumb or belittle you for asking questions. Also check back in with you on their work a week or two later. Would definitely return to these guys for any transmission work I’ll need on any of my vehicles and will always recommend them to friends, family and anyone needing work done. Thank you guys!!

Eleanore Thayer

I can not rave enough about thus place. Randy and his team are fast, friendly, and KNOW what they are doing! I had my clutch replaced here after being less than happy with another company doing it twice and blowing it both times in two years… This team is transparent and care about the quality of their work. If you need transmission work or your clutch replaced, this is your company. They made my Subaru ready for the road and I couldn’t be happier! 10/10 tldr: use this company and you will be a happy camper

BMW Transmission Repair FAQ

Do I need to change the transmission oil in my BMW?

Absolutely. BMWs with automatic transmissions benefit greatly from regular transmission oil changes to keep the transmission running smoothly and efficiently. Every 100,000 kilometers or just over 62k in miles, as recommended by BMW, you should change the oil in your ZF transmission. Smooth shifts and reliable transmission performance depend on transmission fluid that has been properly maintained.

What is a ZF transmission?

Many BMWs use transmissions manufactured by ZF. Specific procedures for maintaining these transmissions are suggested by ZF Aftermarket. In order to avoid transmission problems and have a pleasant driving experience, it is important to keep up with these suggestions.

How often should I service my BMW’s automatic transmission?

ZF Aftermarket suggests changing the transmission oil every 100,000 kilometers. But if you observe any strange behavior, like harsh shifts or delays, you might want to get your transmission checked out sooner.

What can cause my BMW’s transmission to slip?

A BMW transmission that slips gears could be experiencing wear and tear, low transmission fluid levels, or computer system faults. Slipping gears should be fixed as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

Can you service BMW DSG transmissions?

We can, in fact, repair BMWs with Dual-Clutch transmissions. To guarantee consistent performance, our expert mechanics are familiar with detecting and fixing problems with DSG transmissions.

My BMW’s transmission is making unusual noises. What could be the problem?

When the transmission in your BMW begins making strange noises like whining, clunking, or humming, it may be a sign of internal friction and wear. Worn parts or contaminated transmission fluid could be to blame. The noise level of your BMW can be reduced, but our mechanics can find the cause and fix it.

Can you service BMW models other than the ones mentioned?

BMW M5, 330i, X5, X3, 540i, 530i, 530e, Z4, X1, X2, M3, M8, and M4 transmission repairs and services are available here. If you own a BMW, you can rest assured that your transmission will be in good hands with us.

How can I prevent expensive transmission failures in my BMW?

Transmission failures can be quite expensive to fix, therefore preventative maintenance is essential. Transmissions in BMWs can be made to last much longer with regular maintenance, fast attention to any strange behavior, and adequate transmission fluid levels.

What transmission fluid should I use in my BMW?

ATF Dexron III is the fluid standard for 4-speed BMW automatics (ZF 4HP). This is also the most common ATF you will find at auto parts stores (it’s compatible with most GM and Ford auto transmissions)
