94 740il trans fail code

when i start out in drive the engine revs up for short bit then takes off.. then sometimes the trans fail code pops up on the screen. some say i need to add fluid to the tranny.. but i cant even find a dip stick. so what would be a solution to this problem.

You wont find a dip stick for the trans oil its all done from underneath.

When was the last time you had the boxed serviced?? they do not have lifetime oil as BMW say, what they mean is around 100,000 miles.
