Do you haveto change manual tranmittion fluid bmw 5 e60 525! 2005

It's best to. You can go longer than automatics. Oil viscosity break down. If it's been 11 years, I would change it.

I have a 1992 BMW 525 I manual transmission what kind of fluid do I put in the ATF oil only reservoir?

You should be able to use most Automatic Transmission Fluids (ATF), although if you have a manual shift car, then there is no ATF.
Check the fluid level careful if you do have an ATF container, since it is very rare that you would lose fluid from the transmission.

I have a bmw 330d e46 auto (2003) (53 plate) and a red light has come which looks like a cog with a caution sign inside the cog.anyone have any idea what this could mean

hi this could mean that the transmition ( automatic gearbox is low on oil ) there should be a dipstick under the bonnet towards the gearbox where you pull it out to see the oil level.
to get the true reading you dip for oil level when engine is worm
and ticking over .

Can't find oil level stick in engine compartment 2006 bmw 525i Whould you tell me where is it?

The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".
