My 1994 525 bmw, Auto/Man transmission started with when in reverse feels like slipping. A month later, car broke down while driving it won't engage any gears and manual says transmodule. Noticed that when...


no checking the trans fluid. There is a drain and fill plug. Jack up the car, keep it level, at hot temp, remove fill plug, if a little fluid comes out, it is at the correct level. know the difference between the drain and fill plug. the fill plug is higher.

Where is the oil filter located?


The engine oil filter is located just right of center if standing in front of the car. By removing the LARGE Black cap with the 36mm nut you will expose the filter element, make sure to do this before draining the oil from the drain plug in the pan. Otherwise the filter will still hold oil until loosened a bit. A typical oil change should go like this.
1. Engine Hot, not running, Loosen filter housing, don't remove yet.
2. Drain Oil, Replace plug.
3. Remove and Replace filter and O-Rings
4. Add oil.

I need to change my oil and filter on a BMW 745I 2002, does anyone know how to do it.


The oil filter is located underneath the vehicle next to the drain plugand accessed through a removable trim cover. If I remember correctly the drain plug is a 7mm allen. The oil filter has a drain plug in it to predrain before removing the filter cap. I do not recommend removing the plug because it strips out sometimes. Instead you need to use a socket and loosen the cap slowly. Your engine will take 8qts bmw syn 5w30 oil. I like the factory oil because it is proven extended life oil. When reinstalling the drain plug make sure to replace the crush washer. Also, make sure to replace the oring on the oil filter cap and lube before reinstalling.
