My mistake, I also didn't release the pressure while moving in between wheels.

No need to release the pressure when you do the other wheels unless you need to add more brake fluid to your bleeder container.

Ok.... the next day I rushed from work, made sure that this time I take also the oil pumping device, that I forgot home the previous day and pushed the car inside.
No PS , rock hard steering wheel + a lying around engine on a tire + me being stressed= a big scratch on the front bumper. So the day started amazing.
I checked the oil level, midway on the dipstick after 6 liters. Manual said 6,5 with filter. Installed the O2 sensors, pumped the oil in the transmission, 3 liters, filled pan, started the car ,idled for a couple of min, stopped it and checked again the engine oil which had dropped to the first mark, added 400 ml more. And was perfect. In total 6,4 liters out of 6,5. Added aprox 1,5 liters more in the transmission, ran it through the gears, for 10 sec each, 30s at 2000 rpm to be sure that the TC gets fresh oil also, checked it the temperature to NOT exceed 50°Celsius. Opened the plug, some oil was slightly dripping, but the car was not very flat on had a so slight list to the left.
I said Done. Torqued the plugs 30Nm for the drain plug and 35Nm for the fill plug. Clean everything and checked for leaks. None detected.
The ZF transmission kit came with, oil, magnets, filter, gasket, new plugs and instructions, which I follow precisely.
Oil is ZF Lifeguard fluid and it is engine oil color. Light brown yellow. Reset the adaptations both engine and transmission. Car feels nimble and transmission is smooth. I had a 3,9 % long fuel trim and 0% short fuel trim, on both banks. Up to 5% is considered to be normal from what I know. I would consider a job well done.
Now I will be testing the car for the whole week before driving next Friday.

And why did the reservoir bubble up? I really don't like those strain marks on it. Pressure was low 12psi. I bleed aprox 1L of fluid. Was 3 years old an quite brown. The Ate one is light pee yellow.
Anyway the brakes are fine and smooth.

All the service intervals were reset to proper time and mileage for the next change. Small error for the brake fluid time interval, should be 2023 instead of 2022.

Some updates... not good ones...
Apparently, according to ZF the 5HP19 takes about 9.2L ( 9.8qrt) of oil, with my 4,5L I'm quite low on oil.
I have a TCC slip code, a catalytic code,
The original O2 sensors never threw that code. I replaced them with ebay ones .
Took the car for a longer ( 400km) test drive yesterday. Clutch was not really locking up, gas mileage went up a little, code was there. Shifting is butter smooth. Topped at 205km/h in D (199 on gps)
I'm gonna check the level again these days.
Still have the bearing grind noise, probably the back ones. After pushing the car in the shop, the PS spit fluid out the reservoir's hole. Since then I have hiccups in PS,( like the belt is slipping) and my servotronic valve is responding with delay. At stand still is smooth, driving is smooth, I brake and take a corner, stiff as ahit and after a couple of sec smooth again.( that was also prior)
Did a test with ista and it says ( no speed signal from the cluster, but it's coded for speed signal from the abs sensor). Any ideas?

The dreaded o2 sensors are really acting strange. I took some readings with 2 different softwares. INPA and Scanmaster.
From my knowledge the engine runs impeccable.
In Inpa the values for the rear O2 sensors are like they should. In Scanmaster no, one is bound at around 0.125v and the other one is up and down.
Fuel trims are ok.
Last is transmission code

Would help if I could, not a screen time kind of enthusiast. I know I need to get there, would help if I could. New 02’s pre cat from FCP helped a lot on my M54, didn’t need a computer to know that. ‘98 M52 still on originals at ~160k miles, no need to mess with them yet as the thing is really nice to float around on. Next on the list is M/T and diff fluid changes. Wait til something breaks.
