Question Asked: Should I add Automatic Transmission Fluid?
July 05, 2011, 11:33 AM
My BMW has 60k miles on it. It is gradually taking longer and longer for it to get into 1st gear from Park. It now takes about 5 seconds and in the winter sometimes 8 to 10 seconds. Based on other forums I think the ATF is low also I looked into the Automatic Transmission Fluid container in the engine compartment and it is at the "minimum" level. Should I just top it off (if so which ATF fluid should I use) or should I have an indy shop change it for me? Thanks!

In most cases, only the boot will have to be replaced; however, if it is not repaired soon enough, the <a id="ce_50" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/cv-half-shaft-assembly">half-shaft</a> may need to be replaced. The front outer boots are put under heavy stress because of their involvement with the suspension when making turns.</p>
