Where Automatic Transmission fluid?

Where can I find the checker for the Automatic Transmission fluid?? The owners manual does not have it listed? Is this a sealed system?

David, it's usually helpful to state the model and year. :-p
But just in case my psychic powers are strong today I will say that the E36 model had a sealed for life automatic system. Having said that most people recommend having it changed at 100k miles.

You don't say what car you are talking about, but if the owners manual does not mention one it's probably because it is a sealed "lifetime fill" transmission. It requires lifting the car and removing the fill plug to determine the fill level.

I find that document a little worrying, as I was told the level hole was only accurate when the transmission was up to a certain temperature range...

waffled on about something:

temp must be between certain limits and that the level is checked with the engine running.

Yes, Im very sorry, its an 1995 525i (left drive).
The only time I question this comes on Monday mornings. I do not drive my car on the weeks, therefore when the car sits, I have the following problem: Start the car, put the car in drive and nothing. Put my foot on the gas, the RPMs go to about 2500, and then the car moves. Doesnt just or anything, it just slow to go. Once this happens, everything works great for that time on. Even the rest of the week. But if the car sits, I have a problem. Its as if Im in my 49 Dodge fluid drive. The the car in gear, take the foot off the clutch and break, the car will stay there. Increase the RPMs and the car moves. Those who know the 49 will know the feeling
Again, thanks for all your help!
