MINI Transmission Flush

A transmission flush is usually twice the price of a fluid change due to the fee of time the service takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from the cooler lines and disparate parts of your transmission.

MINI Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is thicker due to additives and other compounds imperative 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 explicit.

Not only are the fluids alternative between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is very alternative. Automatic transmissions generate a lot more heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be interchanged more usually.
