As we’ve observed an increasing number of cases involving coolant entering the gearbox, we strongly recommend replacing your auto transmission oil cooler, especially if you own a BMW 2 Series or BMW X1. This proactive step can significantly safeguard your vehicle’s transmission system and prevent potential costly issues down the road.
Opting for an auto transmission oil cooler replacement is a cost-effective alternative compared to the extensive process and expenses associated with a full gearbox overhaul. A transmission overhaul entails disassembling, replacing worn or damaged components, and painstakingly reassembling the entire unit, resulting in a substantial expenditure of both time and money.
By proactively addressing this issue, especially around the 100k-kilometer mark, and replacing the auto transmission oil cooler, you can effectively prevent coolant contamination. This prudent step ensures you avoid the need for the expensive and cumbersome gearbox overhaul, safeguarding both your wallet and your vehicle’s seamless performance.
