2000 Manual 528i (transmission problems)

I have a 2000 Manual transmission 528i. The clutch does not move even when the car is off. I called a mechanic and he told me I should add transmission fluid. Is this correct? where do I add the transmission fluid? Thank you ...

The hydraulic clutch actuator is bolted to the gearbox bell housing, the master cylinder (where you top it up with fluid) is under the hood, attached to the servo under the windshield wipers. It's under the air filter housing so you'll have to dig a bit for it.

The brand shouldnt matter, and as far as the type would depend on your driving style(I.E. grandma, slow, fast , I'm a race car driver fast)

Clutch Fluid
Vehicles that have manual transmissions with hydraulic clutches have a clutch master fluid reservoir. It is usually mounted next to the brake master cylinder. Clutch fluid is commonly DOT 3 brake fluid, but always check your owner’s manual.To check the clutch fluid, turn the engine off and look through the translucent reservoir. It should be at or near the top. To add clutch fluid, park on a level surface, turn off the engine, remove the cap, and add as necessary. When reinstalling the cap, make sure that the rubber gasket seats properly.

Maybe this will help as a basic idea.
