There is no way to see the level in the gear box. There should be a small plug somewhere on the top the the gear box. You will need a very small funnel to put in. If the gears are crunching or grinding then try putting a little in. Just stanard auto gear oil will do.

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 .

Where do i top up a auto gear box oil


You need to get underneath car when warmed up, car in neutral & remove "sight plug" (on side of trans) and fluid should just trickle out sight plug when level is correct. I know, manual trans is same.

TOP UP AUTOMATIC GEAR BOX OIL


Looks like you have a leaks problem in your gear box. You'll need a clean hand pump to top up your oil. Make sure your pump is clean. In your gear box, there should be 2 ports ( fill and drain). Filling port located upper position while drain is lower.
Inject your oil and check your deep stick after run your engine for minutes. Repeat those steps till you get normal level of oil. Never exceed max level of your gear oil.

Bmw 330 d step/auto gear box oil level ,location


Hello There

There is no dipstick to check the oil with. The only thing you can do is to top up the oil to makixum level. There are two 17mm bolts on the gear box, accessed from under the car, the one at the bottom is for draining the oil, there is one on the side if the gearbox which is the one you need to add gearbox oil.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard


hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

My BMW 323C slow down quickly when my foot off the pedal


hello there

Thats interesting considering these BMW auto boxes have about 10 quarts of oil in them, when chainging the trans oil not all of it comes out but it should be at least 5/6 quarts. You need to get the oil level checked asap.
