where the hell do you top up the ATF level in these things, can find a dipstick (other than what feels like me at the mo) or any bungs that appear high enough up

i know they need filling up when running and are in drive but still can find where to put the fluid in,

please help

ps its a 51 plate bmw Tdi effort

The auto on the NAS is a ZF 4 speed pinched from a RR Classic.

The fill hole is the dipstick hole so you need a 1 litre plastic bottle of ATF with the long thin spout that fits the tube holding the dipstick.

To check the fluid level from cold, start the engine and with your foot on the footbrake go down from park to first and back again a few times, holding in each position, which ensures that the ATF has circulated all the valves. Select neutral with handbrake on and with engine still running check the fluid level. If ATF needed cut engine, top-up, check from above sequence.

If you do not have ZF then this might be wrong info!

no it is a ZF but there only appears to be a couple of inlets/outletys to the damn thing and these are taken up by pipes running to the cooler

just going to check the link now.

cheers

if you have a close look at the sump on the autobox you will find a hole at the bottom which is the drain and one on the front face which is the filler / level plug,

fill until it overflows, start the engine, it will suck up the oil straight away so you need to then pump like crazy to replenish it, once it starts to stabilise, go up and down the gears, a few seconds in each position, check again, put plug in.

test drive and recheck.
