It's under the back seat on passenger side. Give the end of the seat a good upward yank and it will pop up

Check the transmission fluid level. If the transmission light is flashing,the car's computer sees a fault with the transmission or transmission controls. You will need a scan tool to retrieve codes stored in the computer to determine the fault.
The "Check Engine" light, which is also called a "Malfunction Indicator Lamp" (MIL) or "Service Engine Soon" (SES) lamp, is there to signal you when a problem occurs that may require attention. This can include anything from a momentary hiccup that has has little or no noticeable affect on engine performance or driving safety to a failure of a major electronic component. There's no way to know what the light means without running a diagnostic scan on the system to determine the nature of the fault.
Fault codes are numeric codes that are generated when a problem is detected. If a sensor circuit reads out of range or some electronic component fails to respond to a command from the computer, the computer recognizes it as a fault and records a number that corresponds to the nature of the problem. The technician must then retrieve the code and refer to specific diagnostic chart or "fault tree" that gives him the step-by-step checks he has to perform to isolate the failed component. It can be a very time-consuming process depending on the nature of the problem. Usually the process works but sometimes it doesn't. An intermittent fault can be very difficult to track down, and may require repeated attempts to repair it.

You can get this with google.

Otherwise ask a deep web research service, like manualfox.com

Your car has suspension leveling. Shocks that automatically adjust the rear level of your car to the weight you have in it, and there appears to be a probelm with it.

It could possibly be the cabin air filter is clogged, especially if it has never been changed. Aside from that it is probably one of the stepper motors that adjust the various vent gates in the air passages under the dash. Although replacing the cabin air filter on this car is fairly easy, comparatively speaking, you do have to remove the glove box in order to do it.

The oil it uses is a 10w40 and needs 5.75litres with filter when doing an oil change. Coolant mixture is always 50% antifreeze and 50% water, this is pretty much the rule of thumb when doing coolant change on any vehicle and has a 10.5L. This includes both the radiator and engine coolant capacity.

Brake fluid is a DOT 4, power steering fluid is either a Dexron II or CHF 7.1/11S. Differential oil grade is a SAE 90W and takes 1.7 litres.

I can supply endless info on these if you need as I used to own own before owning an e39,e36,e38,e46,e93 and now a yamaha r6!

Hope this helps!

If your car has a transmission dipstick, it will be next to the intake manifold on the driver's side sort of toward the firewall. To remove it so you can check the fluid level, you must tilt the handle to the side and then pull it out. Some transmissions don't have a dipstick and the fluid level must be checked from underneath the car by taking out a plug on the side of the pan.

Hi there, I am not sure that I can help but my 1992 520i did the same thing every now and then. I had the nrma come out to look at it and he said that my fuel pump relay was getting stuck on. I replaced it $42 and have not had the problem since. You might not have the same issue but it gives you something to start with.. Good luck
