1990 535i auto box oil level.

Can anyone please advise on the following:- after a run I check the transmission oil with the engine still running, there is no evidence of oil on the dipstick. Leave it parked and check after 30 minutes and the oil is
way up the dipstick. Run the engine and move the box through the gears and the oil is still above the full mark (with the engine running. Any ideas anyone? TIA John

You need to find the instructions on how to do this. IIRC the engine / car has to be run for a while, and getting it right is difficult.
