    This is the first time I got my oil changed at an indy shop, and after it was done and I drove off, I checked the oil level in "Vehicle Information" and it's only at about half way between Min and Max. I drove it about 20 minutes to the shop, then drove it 10 minutes to work after the change. I...

    I've searched on the type of engine oil to use and there are some varying opinions. I wanted to get a more difinitive response. I realize BMW recommends using 5w30. Some people use Mobil1 0w40. Is the general consensus to use 7 quarts of synthetic 5w30 oil, regardless of the brand? Thank you.

    I just bought a 1995 525i 4dr sedan and i want to replace all the fuses. I have a new box of fuses that look almost like the ones in the car. The metal protruding from the plastic is slimmer then the ones in the car. Do i need to buy those ones? The fuses that are out are my moonroof, and a few...

    Hey anyone changed their tranny fluid and have the tranny go out shortly after? I have 92000 on my 7 and the pan and the seal is leaking so I am going to change it out. Heard some stories of the tranny going out shortly after changing. Even the local dealer said he has had some go out after...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Just got a 1998 528i, the guy I bought it from was the second owner. He got it with 60k miles so I'm assuming the ATF wasn't changed for him. He also was a firm believer of BMWs lifetime tranny fluid so he never had it changed. Now the car has 180,000 miles, and has yet to see an ATF change...

    The automatic transmission on most BMWs is said to have lifetime fluid... we here at ECS as well as many transmission manufactures recommend service every 30k miles. Over the life of a vehicle, the transmission can often be overlooked when performing routine maintenance. If left unserviced...
