Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi MacKenzie, The gear box on your vehicle is filled from underneath the car. It will be better for you to have the filling carried out by a service center, where the correct equipment is available. If you would like to do the job yourself, the vehicles front wheels must be chocked and make sure the chocking is very secure. The engine must be warmed up. The rear end of the car should be jacked to an angle of about thirty degrees. The engine should be left running and then you go underneath. Under the gearbox molded into the oil pan you will see the recessed filler plug. The plug must be removed and the box filled from underneath. As I've said, it's a job rather left to those with the equipment. Regards John

when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20
it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.
hope this helped.

i have to admit without more detail it's hard to say.... my educated guess would be that one of the hoses to the transmission cooler has blow and needs to be replaced. do NOT drive the car till that is done.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.
