Transmission Repair You Can Trust
While BMWs and MINI Coopers are reliable vehicles, the wear and tear these performance models encounter can lead to transmission problems. The complexity of these vehicles makes it important to only trust a qualified, certified technician to make repairs.
Strange smells or odd noises like squeaking, grinding, or screeching are common indicators of a transmission problem. If your vehicle is leaking dark, reddish fluid, this is another warning sign you shouldn’t ignore. Other potential indications of transmission problems include difficulty shifting, low acceleration efficiency, and vibrations or shaking.
Has your check engine light has come on? This isn’t something you should take lightly! A professional code reading will help determine whether you’re experiencing a problem with your transmission or a different issue. Either way, visiting a qualified mechanic is the first step in the diagnostic process.
It’s common for BMW drivers to come across an error message that reads: “Drivetrain Malfunction: Drive Moderately.” This often occurs after heavy acceleration or when going up a steep incline. This message is a good indication that you’re experiencing engine or transmission problems. In this case, scanning for a fault code will give you more information.
Some of the most common causes of a drivetrain malfunction error include worn sparkplugs, a failed ignition coil, a faulty fuel pump, a clogged catalytic converter, or damaged fuel injectors. Using low-octane or low-quality fuel in your BMW or MINI Cooper can also trigger this error code.
Receiving this code in cold weather could be due to having an old battery or having too many electronics plugged into your auxiliary outlets. If you’ve recently changed your oil and then received the message, you may have spilled oil on the engine or unintentionally unplugged a sensor.
Since there are so many potential causes, it’s best to allow a certified professional to properly diagnose it. This will help you avoid ongoing problems.
