Moderate climate calls for 10W40 (10W60 if you use synthetic)

and 4.0 litres which includes the filter change as well.

SOURCE: my on board computer will not work on my BMW 318. E46

possibly a problem with the button on the end of the stalk.
sounds like your indicator stalk needs changed out.
I had a similar problem with the other side and my intermittent wipers. changed the stalk and it was all good.

How do i change oil filter and fuel filter on a bmw 318 ti compact 1997

The oil filter should be in a housing with a plastic top with a big hex shape on top. You remove it with a 36mm wrench or socket.
Then you remove the O-ring from the cover and replace it with a freshly oiled up new O-ring from the filter package. Pull out the old filter and press in the new one. Screw the cover back down. No need to overtighten. The O-ring is the seal.
Instructions for replacing the fuel filter are here:

You can also take a paper clip (can mess things up, but I use it) And have it touch the 7th & 19th pin inside the service port.
