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,

How do I add tranny fluid to my 1992 BMW 525i


If there is a dipstick, add the proper fluid to the dipstick fillter tube. If there is no dipstick, there are drain plugs on the side that will have to be removed to check the level, at normal operating temperature.

Maybe check autozone.com for further information. There are two brands of transmission used in the BMWs of that era. ZF and GM transmissions. There are also a number of types of transmission used in the BMW 525i vehicles.

Check online for a service bulletin regarding the automatic transmission used in your vehicle, or check with the dealer.

I found a service bulletin that's in black and white, but it was not pastable to the fixya.com website.
Sorry, about that.

Good luck on finding a solution to adding transmission fluid to your 1992 BMW 525i vehicle.

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

Transmission light is on in the bmw 528i


add transmission fluid. DOT 4 is reverse compatible with DOT 3. the car must be at running temp to do this. the car must be running to add fluid. the car must be level to do this. The new fluid must be pumped in. That being said......the local quick lube place is the best place to go. Too many people crush themselves under a running car to safely do it themselves.

Adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.


On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

Need to know what kind of power steering fluid to use?


Your car, being a 735 iL (the iL being the key here) requires what is called Pentosin 7.1. This is a mineral based hydraulic fluid used in BMW's with self leveling suspension. Since your car is an iL you have self leveling suspension. Not a lot of parts stores carry this fluid. NAPA has it, if it's not on the shelf they can order it. BMW dealers also stock it. The same pump that runs your self leveling also runs your power stearing and they are filled in the same location as they share a common resivoir. This resivoir is located in the engine compartment on the driver's side and looks like a black bottle with a screw type cap.
