BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
can you please clarify what type of advise you are looking for or what question you would like answered?
hi, iwould like to know how to renew auto box oil , & why it would suddenly lose drive , then be ok 10 mins later. regards.
there is no dipstick
the transmission is sealed and fluid can only be added through a fill hole on the transmission itself. the vehicle needs to be raised and level to accomplish this. This makes it difficult to do in a non-professional setting.
regarding the loss of gear it could be due to overheating of the transmission, low fluid, internal clog or leak, or other mechanical failure.
