The oil filter is right in the middle of the engine (between the intake and valve cover gasket) near the radiator it has a 36mm cap over the top of it. the transmission doesn't have a dipstick. the fluid must be checked through a fill plug (transmission must be cool and vehicle running) would not attempt in driveway with vehicle on jackstands

I have a 1999 bmw 323I I bought a transmission.thinking that it was the transmission cause it doesnt drive or revorce.they put in the transmission and still doing the same thing.what could it be!!


Could be the shifter cable broken, bad wiring,bad computer, or(If you bought a used on) could be a bad transmission. Unlikely both transmissions would have the exact same problem though.

Location of oil filter


It is located on the driver's side of the engine. To see what it looks like, go to REALOEM.com and enter the last seven digits of your VIN or month and year of production from the car's name plate.
Select Main Group 11 Engine, Subgroup 11 30 Lubrication System, then select diagram "E93 323i Lubricat.syst.-oil filter, heat exchanger"
For example a 2009 323i uses part numbers
11427548032 for aluminum housing, 11427525334 for the oil filter cover (usually plastic) which uses a special wrench for removal, and 11427566327 for the cartridge type oil filter and o-rings.

Should a 1999 323i BMW transmission fluid be changed when it's mileage is 197,000?????


BMW says that the transmission fluid is permanent. However, you have to keep in mind that they do not greatly care whether a car lasts 200k miles or 300k miles, so long as it makes it though the warranty period.
BMW also said that the previous generation (e36) fluid was permanent, and that has proven to be untrue.
I believe that the 1999 323 uses the later, really expensive, synthetic transmission fluid, so brace yourself for a hefty bill.
I recommend replacing the older generation fluid every 50k miles and the newer generation (yours) fluid every 100k miles. My wife's 330 is approaching 100k miles and I intend to replace her fluid soon.

Location of oil filter on BMW 323i coupe '99 reg and how to fit new cartridge


Both E36 and E46 models have oil filter under the hood, towards the front of the block. You will need a special socket to remove the oil filter cap and once it's out, can replace the filter. Make sure to replace the gasket on oil filter cap, it should come in oil filter kit you bought.
