Never done a code check on this car. Can I get a generic code checker for this vehicle? The oil level is good.

well only the dealer can do the code check... its not that bad to spend a bit more for your car...

Change your tranny fluid and filter.

I had one 88 325e with 280k miles. Started slipping and smoking like crazy. Changed the fluid and filter and it shifted like new again.
