2012 MINI Cooper S Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will frequently require a variety of different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are generally thinner and are frequently red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is more burly and thicker due to additives and other vital compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and other parts. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is vastly different.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is remarkably different. Automatic transmissions generate ample heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more normally. If you don't change your 2012 MINI Cooper S transmission fluid, your transmission will have dangerous broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the essential parts of your 2012 MINI Cooper S. You should normally check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In many cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be extremely difficult to do. Call or visit Crown MINI of Richmond for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
