SOURCE: I cant remove the transmission dip stick on my 1992 BMW 525

Do you mean the brown flask shaped bottle with the black cap? They can get very tight over time. Best thing is to use a dry cloth or rag & give it your all. Anti Clockwise I'm sure!
If it's very slippy & covered in oil, dirt etc give it a wash with warm water & dish washer fluid. Something that will remove the grease. Dry it off then try again.
The bottle can be removed with the hose on the bottom still attached !!! If you need to hold it in one hand while trying to twist the cap of with your other hand.
If all this fails then may I suggest one of those handy gadgets for opening Jars. They can be picked up in most household goods stores. This should give you the leverage needed.

SOURCE: where is the transmission dip stick located for the 2002 525i bmw

it is a sealed trans. you will have to bring it to BMW to have them take a look.... they dont put a dip stick on that car and many other's so you can't do anything except bring it to them to have it worked on... sorry for the bad news.... hope this helps you

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

SOURCE: I have a 2004 bmw 525i after driving for about

3 things it could be
1/ is the oil pump is not getting enough oil
2/ the oil is the wrong type for your car as you should be running 20W 40 SHELL.
3/ You have a OPLS(oil pressure light switch) in the engine and that could be faulty.
SO try No 2 first (drain and refill) then try it on a long run if still playing up then let me know Ron

Sounds like your transmission is approaching being toast. Better get it into a trans shop before it leaves you stranded.

How to change my transmission oil 2005 BMW 525i

If there is no drain plug on the auto Trans sump you undo all the bolts holding it in place and let the Trans oil run into a large container then take the bolts out and remove the Trans sump, there should be a filter you need to clean before putting the sump back in place with a new gasket and tightening the bolts to the correct tension.

Where is the transmissions dip stick on my 1995 525i BMW? '

Assuming an automatic trans, there isn't one. The fluid is checked by removing a plug on the center of the ****** pan. If fluid spills out, it's full. No wonder the Germans lost ww2!

Hi I have a 2002 525i BMW,two days ago while I was driving the computer in my dasboard warned me that says 'transmission fail safe' and the car kind of slipping however it still runs with no problem on...

That is most likely the case, hopefully it just needs transmission fluid. It does give a warning when the fluid is low. I would certainly start with that.

Can't find oil level stick in engine compartment 2006 bmw 525i Whould you tell me where is it?

The BMW 525I doesn't have a dip stick. The oil level is checked using the "i" menu. Select service status and from there you should choose "check engine oil level".
