Choosing & Maintaining the Proper Fluids for Your BMW in Edmonton, AB

Every vehicle is built and designed differently, even when it comes to its hardware and the fluids that help it run smoothly. Luckily, Edmonton BMW is here to fill you in on how to choose the right fluids for your BMW and maintain them for optimal performance over the long term. Find out how you can best tend to your BMW below before getting in touch with us to schedule your next service appointment.

Engine Oil

Your BMW's engine oil is integral to its output and performance. If your vehicle packs a turbocharged engine, we suggest booking an oil change with our Service Centre every 8,000 km or so, and if your BMW boasts a naturally aspirated engine, an oil change every 11,000 or 12,000 km will do. If you're experiencing engine trouble or unusually low oil levels, our technicians will quickly diagnose the problem, rectify it, and recommend the motor oil that suits your BMW best.

Engine Coolant

An engine coolant system may not need maintenance quite as often as your motor oil levels, but it's just as important to your BMW's performance. While some coolant brands claim their fluid can last a lifetime, we still recommend getting your coolant and its system checked every 50,000 km or so just to be on the safe side, as a tip-top system will prolong the lifespan of key engine components and optimize performance and fuel efficiency.

Braking System

No technicians have more intimate knowledge of BMW braking systems than ours, and we'll ensure that your brake pads, rotors, discs, and of course, your fluid levels are in order to help you stay safe at the wheel. We suggest bringing us your BMW for a brake check once, if not twice a year, and we'll flush and refill your vehicle's brake fluid to ensure that your system is working at its peak.


Like your engine coolant system, your BMW's transmission isn't quite as high-maintenance as its other systems, but that's no reason to leave it unattended, as it's one of the most intricate and expensive parts of your BMW. In order to keep enjoying smooth, responsive shifts for the long haul, we recommend getting your transmission's fluid, filters, and seals checked at least once a year, which will keep the system from overheating, breaking down, and saddling you with hefty expenses.
