SOURCE: I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL.

Depends how competent you are here and what sort of tools you have.You will also need to replace oil filter if you wish to replace oil within the engine.The oil has to be drained from underneath the engine and allow it to sit for few hours while draining as this will ensure all the deposits at the bottom comes off.

Where do I find oil sending unit on a 2001 BMW 740il E 38.. My oil pressure i reading low pressure. But its full of oil..


Full oil does not mean that you have oil pressure.
The sending unit is located right by the oil filter mount.
It is very possible that you have a bad sending unit, gauge, or actually do have low oil pressure...best to have pressure checked by a good mechanic

I need to know how often I am required to change the oil on my bmw 740il (2000)...The recommendation is not in the owner's manual. Thanks!


I would recommend every 5000km / 3000 miles OR 6 months.

If you do high mileage then switch that to 10,000km / 6,000 miles OR 12 months. Use top grade oil though.

I have 2001 bmw 740il and when i cold start my car in the morining, engine makes very loud roring sound and then calmes down.


This is due to a clogged oil pan filter and gunked up lifters. Remove oil pan and clean screen filter. Use and internal engine cleaning solution before your next few oil changes to clean valves and lifters.

I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL. How do I do this? Do I need special tools?


Changing oil in the BMW 740iL is no different than other cars. If you are not comfortable with this find a trusted German Automotive mechanic to do it for you.
You will need a large socket to remove the oil filter housing cover. The BMW tool is expensive. You can use large channel lock pliers with a smooth jaw or place a small strip of cardboard (like cereal box) over the teeth on regular pliers so you don't damage the cover.

2001 BMW 740iL is sputtering when I accelarate and shaky when idl


A tune-up and throttle body clean-up is a good idea, but mind you on those cars, the valve covers usually leak into the spark plugs and coils, causing the car to misfire. If you are replacing the plugs and find them soaked in oil; replace your valve cover gaskets or you will be back to the same problem soon after the oil soaks the new plugs back up again.
