You have a 5hp30, in94 they changed a little mid year but they both will work in the 94 530, the early being a 3 bolt torq converter and the later being a 4 bolt,. you'll need to buy the correct flywheel if changeing. the fluid is simply dextron lll. I did this a year ago and the biggest problem was the exhaust bolts.

If there is inadequate of transmission fluid in my 2000 740iL will it move if I shift it to drive gear? Where is the transmission fluid hole in order to add some fluid?


Hi there,

Transmission Fluid is the lifeblood of your auto and considered to be the one of the most critical components for a good working transmission, as the chemical makeup & viscosity of the fluid helps determine correct pressure and shifting. For this reason, use only BMW specified fluid - DO NOT use any non-approved fluid.

Measuring correct transmission fluid level is done after the engine/trans has WARMED UP.

If you measured your transmission fluid level using a dipstick, then you generally add BMW spec fluid through the same tube as the dipstick. CAUTION: never overfill the transmission, as excess fluid will cause 'foaming' and this usually creates further shifting issues.

If you have determined the fluid is low, the trans components will still function, but any attempt to operate the transmission in DRIVE with inadequate fluid, will likely cause unneccessary damage.

If there is no dipstick present, then this model BMW (much like the Merc's) denies you the ability to change your trans fluid yourself. This is a precautionary measure by the manufacturer to prevent the owner from changing the fluid. Instead, the workshop will have a special tool to measure the fluid level.

Cheers,
