SOURCE: Location of Oil Dipstick

i am not sure but try these websites to see if they have any information if you do not have a owner manual try this website and the other one is and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car.

Where is the oil dipstick located?

Check your owner's manual. In my 2007 BMW X3 , there is no dipstick but the oil is checked electronically on the dashboard. I think it's kind of stupidly complex, but many people don't know how to open the hood, I guess!

How do i check the oil in my 2008 335xi?

On the upper left stalk next to the steering wheel, push the flipper up (or down) until "OIL" shows up in the display. Then press the BC button on the end of the same stalk. The oil level should be displayed.
I believe this model has no dipstick (my 2008 335i does not) so this is the only way to do it short of draining the oil and measuring it.

If there is inadequate of transmission fluid in my 2000 740iL will it move if I shift it to drive gear? Where is the transmission fluid hole in order to add some fluid?

Hi there,

Transmission Fluid is the lifeblood of your auto and considered to be the one of the most critical components for a good working transmission, as the chemical makeup & viscosity of the fluid helps determine correct pressure and shifting. For this reason, use only BMW specified fluid - DO NOT use any non-approved fluid.

Measuring correct transmission fluid level is done after the engine/trans has WARMED UP.

If you measured your transmission fluid level using a dipstick, then you generally add BMW spec fluid through the same tube as the dipstick. CAUTION: never overfill the transmission, as excess fluid will cause 'foaming' and this usually creates further shifting issues.

If you have determined the fluid is low, the trans components will still function, but any attempt to operate the transmission in DRIVE with inadequate fluid, will likely cause unneccessary damage.

If there is no dipstick present, then this model BMW (much like the Merc's) denies you the ability to change your trans fluid yourself. This is a precautionary measure by the manufacturer to prevent the owner from changing the fluid. Instead, the workshop will have a special tool to measure the fluid level.

I've never actually put oil in my car before!! (the service people do it) Is the container which says OIL AFT ONLY where the oil goes?? Engine oil that is! (and I've mislaid my owners manual) BMW 318i s...

No! I believe this is the cap for your automatic transmision, do not put engine oil in here. The fill for the engine should be on top along the rockercover. If the you can find the dipstick for the transmission, the oil should be a slight red/pink colour. The dipstick for engine oil, the oil on the stickwill be dark brown to black colour!

Where is the oil dipstick to measure the automatic box

There is none.
The fill plug is your measurment.(left rear corner of the transmission oil pan , on the side not bottom).
Engine running , shifter on park position , remove filler plug ,
if fluid runs out , it's full and doesn't need anymore, if not - add fluid untill it starts coming out , reinstall filler plug.
