Question 97 528i transmission dipstick!

Is there a transmission dipstick on the 97 528i, if so, would someone
be so kind as to inform me, where, if not, why not?

Thanx!!!!

your bimmer doesn't have a dipstick... unfortunately. And there's an ungodly procedure to follow in place of the traditional dip and check stick. Euro cars circa that production year, came up with the idea("crazy to me"), that synthetic tranny fluid will last a lifetime.

Let me know if u need the tranny check procedure... i'll type it out for u while savoring my daily dose of beer

O.K. DH737, that is the one I read, and I might add, I read somewhere,
which I know is a fact with domestic cars,if you don't change transmission
fluid at some intervals,don't wait til after 100xxx miles and change, because
you will lose most of the fabric on the clutches, and slippage will occur.
Again, you are there, and, thanx.
