Having problems with your BMW 530 ?

My husband made a stupid mistake. He started to add oil to our 2002 530i when he realized he was pouring it into the transmission fluid hole. He thinks about 1/3 of a quart went in before he realized his mistake. Will this cause damage? What should we do now?

Answers :

It wont cause immediate damage, but could over time. The best solution is to get the fluid changed soon. Transmission fluid Is oil just a different type with a lot of additives. The dilution of what he added should be a problem id dealt with quickly.
Yes it Will! You need to take it to the Dealership and have them Drain and Flush the Transmission Before it gets Ruined. Oil is a LOT Heavier than Trans Fluid and will harm the Clutches inside.
