SAE 10w40 for bmw engines.

    Please do your research on it. High viscosity oils can cause a lot of problems, as the tolerances in engines determine the viscosity. Basically, the tighter the tolerances, the lighter the oil. This way there is enough oil flow to keep everything working ok. Putting a higher viscosity oil than is required for a modern vehicle can cause things to rub metal on metal, overheat, and you can also blow head gaskets (especially on the BMW M50/52 engines, which is what you have.) Your oil filler cap should have the viscosity printed on it; I know mine does on my BMW 325i, and it's 10W40. 20W50 is usually used for Harley davidson motorcycles.

Hi I'm looking for an exploded view of the auto box on a bmw 325i se 1994. It's a type Z i think. Thanks TPJ


The 1994 325i automatic transmission is the GM made 4L30E (if the car is a US model). BMW calls this the A4S-310R.

You can download the 4L30E section of the Transtar catalog, which shows the parts diagrams. You can order any of these parts through Bavarian Autosport at www.bavauto.com

My 1994 bmw 325i wont go over 20 mph,.


I would run some engine diagnostic tests to determine if it is an engine problem. Then I would aim to look at the transmission system. This also involves looking into the transmission's computer. You need to take it to a shop that has a scan tool that can scan the transmission control system. A lot of the BMW have advanved logic in the computer and the average shop will not have the tool. You will probably have to take it to a bimmer dealer.
