On the drivers side of the transmission under the car is a plug similar to a rear end in the older rear wheel drive cars bmw has
a lifetime tranny fluid setup so take out the plug and fluid should drip out its right behind the shifter cable if it dosent drip out youll need a pump to put it in you can get these at advance auto

Clutch is slipping of and on 1992 325i bmw sedan


This has been a common problems on these models, even with new clutches. May also be more noticeable on inclines. Have your mechanic check the transmission mount. When they wear they cause the transmission to slightly move, which sometimes pulls on the shift linkage. The other thing you mechanic needs to check is to see if your transmission needs new shift synchronizers. Replacing them would be a transmission rebuild.

Are you sure you use the right type of fluid, and have you let it warm up and checked the level with the engine running?
I would only use the recommended oil suggested by BMW.

Try manually shifting it?
Also, is there any chance you disconnected a wire or hose to the transmission valve body when you had the pan off?
Or any chance you got some dirt inside?

Re-check the transmission fluid level. It's possible that the level has "settled" due to the work that you did on it, and may be low now, even though it appeared normal when first topped off.
Just a thought.

My 325i 1992 automatic transmission seems to be slipping and i want to know how to check the fluid level


The 3 series does not have a dipstick in the engine compartment. It is similar to a manual transmission and should have filler/level plug on the side of the gearbox casing.
