SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

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.

SOURCE: cannot find the transmission fluid and power

if you can find the resevoir for the power steering, which is supposed to be located (Driver's side in front of the engine near the ground. See that canister in front of the engine with the screw top? i had to look that up) you will be able to tell by looking at it how much is in there. usually there are some lines indicating what level you are at.

as for the transmission fluid, locate the dipstick It will be located toward the back of the engine compartment. It may be a different color than the motor oil dipstick. The transmission fluid dipstick may even have a picture or words on it. A telltale sign is that the tube the dipstick fits in is smaller than the motor oil tube.(had to look that one up as well) when you pull it out, it too will visually tell you what level you are, full, low or none. pull it out and wipe off the stick, then replace it making sure it fits all the way otherwise you won't get a correct reading. if you need to add some your owners manuel should tell you the exact kind you need if you don't have one, there should be a plate on the side of the transmission.

hope this helps

How do u check the tranny fluid on the 05 645 bmw and where?

Can't find it huh? :) Since BMW does not have a dipstick it is a common question to ask how the transmission fluid is checked. The fluid level is checked (and fluid added) via a fill plug on the transmission fluid pan or just above the pan on the transmission body. Try watching this YouTube video: I hope this helps.

I have a 1997 bmw 328ic standard,,my car only start with starting fluid and when i stop spraying the starting fluid the motor dies out,,,,i also replaced the TPS sensor and the MAF sensor and...

The bank 1 and 2 are your oxygen sensors. Sounds like your fuel regulator isn't working, or either you're not getting gas pumped from the fuel pump. Turn your car on (not running) have someone to listen for the fuel pump to kick on. Or you can disconnect the line going to the fuel rail and turn the switch on and you will see gas come out if the pump is working.

After towing my 93 bmw 318i, the car will not shift to drive or reverse. How do I repair this?

Check the transmission release bearing and the gearing of the transmission check if you need to replace the release bearing.

Where do I add the transmission fluid on a 2004 bmw 545i and how many liters will it take to fill.

The fill drain plug I believe is on the left side of the transmission about 1in above where the oil pan bolts on. I think it is a 7mm allen bolt.If you are topping off the fluid make sure to check the fluid level at the fill hole while the engine temp is still cold. It should trickle out while the engine is in park and running. Make sure to tighten to spec and use approved oil. There should be a label on the transmission pan itself listing the part number for the fluid to use.

Where is the blower motor located on a 1999 BMW 328ic?

behind the radiator fluid fill tank. Be careful. THis is a big job and if your not handy you will break the special plastic clips to fix it after you buy a new "squirrel style blower motor".

Proceed with caution on this my friend. You'll save lots of cash, but be careful and move very slowly!
