The Galleria BMW Service Center has been helping all models continue to run at peak performance for many years. Lately, drivers around D’lberville, Biloxi, and Gulfport have inquired about transmission repairs. To provide insight into this topic in an organized format, we decided to put together a transmission repair overview.

A few common questions are addressed in the sections below, such as: How long does a transmission repair take? When should I have my transmission repaired? How do I know if my transmission is faltering?


How Often Should I Change/Repair My Transmission?

Transmissions should last for quite a while. Most transmissions perform well for 150,000 to 200,000 miles. However, a few factors may necessitate transmission repairs along the way.

To start, the type of weather that your vehicle is subjected to will play a key role. Excessive heat or cold may cause mechanical systems, such as the transmission, to wear down quickly. Also, your individual driving habits and the type of driving you do each day will impact the need for repairs as well. For instance, if you often drive in heavy traffic, it will impact your transmission’s long-term health.

Generally, the transmission fluid will need to be replaced every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. Fortunately, this procedure is a prime opportunity for a technician to inspect your vehicle’s transmission.

How Long Do Transmission Repairs Take?

The severity of the repair will often determine how long your vehicle must remain in the shop. A routine repair might only require a day or less, while more extensive repairs can take multiple days.

Going an extended period without your car can be inconvenient, which is why our service center will be happy to lend you a replacement vehicle to use. As we repair your transmission, you can get to where you need to be as you normally would.

Signs My Transmission Needs Repaired

You can tell when your transmission is beginning to act less efficiently by remaining alert for a few common symptoms.

Your transmission is responsible for moving from one gear to the next. If you find that your vehicle is having difficulty transitioning between gears or dropping gears, your transmission may need to be repaired.

Any sort of unusual noises, such as clanking, grinding, or whining, can signal that your transmission needs to be inspected.

Lastly, any burning smells, puffs of smoke from under the hood, or leaking fluid are immediate signs that your vehicle should be taken to a service center. If any of these symptoms occur, it’s best to avoid driving the vehicle until it’s been repaired.
