1994 530i 5 Speed - Minor Issues?

I recently bought a 1994 530i with 170K miles on it. I have a couple of issues I wanted to inquire the all knowing Beemer Gawds about.....

1. Steering. Sometimes there is a whine when I turn and the steering wheel wants to hesitate when turning.

2. Clutch pops out of 2nd and 4th when cold

3. Jet engine noise. The vehicle has a jet engine sound, which I don't mind but I'm worried if its mechanical

4. Engine oil low comes on when I turn the car on and then when I turn it off. But the engine oil is fine.

5. on hard revs, the motor will jump. I think it might be motor mounts.

Anyway, hope everyone is having a great 4th weekend!~

i think number 2 is caused by number 5 and maybe power steering flush or the belts loose?

#3 - check to see if the fan clutch is working properly. I suspect it may not turn when the engine is off.

A minor issue for me is a burnt out light bulb, or a droopy headliner. Clutches don't slip out of gear, transmissions do.
