BMW 3 or 5 Series E46 E39 Oil Change DIY

How to change the oil on your 1995-2003 5-series or 1998-2005 3 series BMW. The BMW cars that have this engine are listed in this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M54 Here are the parts you need: 1. A pan to drain the oil into 2. A wrench to undo the drain bolt which is an 18mm wrench or socket 3. A 36mm socket with corresponding wrench that fits it, or a large adjustable (thumb) wrench that expands at least 1 and 1/2 inches or 36mm. 4. Ramps or a jack with axle / jack stands to raise the front of the car in the air. Don't get under the car if it is on a jack. Run the drivers side wheels up on a high curb and crawl up in under that way if you have to.

Part 1: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid & Filter On A BMW/MINI
blog.BavAuto.com -- Most people think that because BMW and MINI call their transmission fluids "Lifetime" or "Extended Service" it doesn't have to be changed. Not true. To get the most out of your transmission and avoid a costly, catastrophic failure, you should change the fluid and filter every 50,000 miles. Watch Bavarian Otto demonstrate how to do this on a BMW E39 (5 series 97 thru 03). You'll find the specific fluid and filter your BMW/MINI needs in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.

Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this DIY and How-To video, we'll show you how to change the power steering fluid and filter on a later model BMW or MINI. Follow along as we replace the reservoir/filter and flush the fluid on a 2001 330xi, The power steering fluid and filter are one of the most overlooked preventive maintenance areas on most BMWs and MINIs. (Think about it -- when did you ever changed the power steering fluid on any vehicle?) On BMWs, this system provides Boost not just for the steering but often for the power brakes and self-leveling suspensions, as well. Time and time again, we'll look at the power steering fluid in a BMW or MINI and it is filthy! (Running on old, degraded fluid will shorten the useful life of the steering rack/gearbox, brake Booster, fluid pump, etc.) The fluid should be bright, clear red or, depending on the application, just clean and clear One of the reasons this system gets overlooked is that there is no direct provision for changing the fluid; therefore the job is a bit more tedious. But it is not so tedious that it should be ignored. We recommend a biennial (every other year) or 50,000-mile fluid change for the power Boost system. Additionally, most systems have a fluid filter incorporated into the fluid reservoir. (A lot of mechanics do not even know that this filter exists!) Change the filter when changing the fluid. (This is also a great time to replace any leaking power steering hoses.) There are three different fluids used in BMWs and MINIs; the correct fluid is typically noted on a label on the reservoir cap. We can assist in determining the proper filter and fluid for your BMW or MINI.

Changing the Engine Oil in a BMW or MINI -- Vacuum Method

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- In this DIY video we'll show you how to change the oil in your BMW or MINI (and even other makes & models) using the vacuum oil changer. This method and tool are applicable to BMW, MINI and others that have an engine oil dipstick (and dip stick tube). Changing the oil in your BMW or MINI yourself is a great way to save money. There are two methods you can use in a DIY (do-it-yourself) oil change. In the first method, you drain the oil from below via the oil pan drain plug. This would typically be accomplished by jacking up the car and supporting it with jack stands, or by driving the front wheels up onto ramps. Ramps are very convenient and can be purchased at many auto parts and department stores. If you prefer to use a floor jack and jack-stands (also handy for future tasks that require the wheels or suspension to hang free), we show you how to select and use floor jacks and jack-stands in the Winter 2009 and Spring 2009 Fast Times newsletters. http://www.bavauto.com/newsletter/2009_n109_newsletter.pdf http://www.bavauto.com/newsletter/2009_n209_newsletter.pdf In the second method (the one we will show you, here), you use a vacuum pump to suck the oil out through the dipstick tube. This method is applicable to BMWs and MINIs where the oil filter can be accessed from under the hood (i.e. without jacking up the car). Note that some late model BMWs do not have oil dipsticks, and some oil filters cannot be accessed from above. In these cases, the oil must be drained from below. Follow along as we perform an oil and filter change on a late model, 6-cylinder BMW. Here are the tools and parts used for this job (Some of the parts or tools may not be needed for one or the other oil removal method (see above) or particular BMW/MINI model: TOOLS: * Bentley repair manuals: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5228 * Oil evacuation/extraction tool: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=PE30899 * Oil filter wrench and oil change tools -- required for certain models: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5112 * Ultimate oil filler funnel: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=OFBMW1000 * Oil absorbent pads: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=25201 * Oil change drain pan -- for undercar method: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=616 * Form-A-Funnel -- for undercar method: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=18609 * Disposable work gloves: http://www.bavauto.com/fland.asp?part=sg%20375l * 13mm to 17mm sockets and ratchet for filter removal (17mm for this application) * 13mm to 19mm socket and ratchet or box-end wrench for drain plug (under-car draining) PARTS: * Oil filter: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5106 * Motor oil -- Lubro-Moly, Red Line or BMW brand: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5107 * Magnetic drain plug: http://www.bavauto.com/se1.asp?dept_id=5283 -------- All products noted in this video can be purchased in our online store, http://www.bavauto.com/, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
