The short answer is yes. Below is a very handy chart showing the different rated BMW engine oils, their intended uses, and any suitable substitutions.

FAQ 96 bme gear oil type

What type of transmission oil does a BMW use?

From the mid-1990s, nearly all BMW manual transmissions, except 6-speed M models, use a Dexron III ATF oil, indicated by an "ATF" label on the transmission. You can find a Dexron III spec almost anywhere but we are impressed with the performance of Red Line ATF D4 in manual transmissions.

What kind of transmission fluid does a BMW 6 speed automatic use?

BMW recommends using only the same fluid in the transmission when topping off the oil level. They do not recommend mixing ATF oil brands and specs so keep track of what oil is in your transmission. The BMW 6-speed automatic is made by either GM (6L45/6L50) or ZF and was used mostly in mid-2000s RWD and AWD models.

Can I buy BMW oil from Opie oils?

Opie Oils sells oils suitable for BMW cars and meeting BMW oil specifications, but Opie Oils is not an approved BMW dealer and is not connected with BMW AG. If you’re unsure, or have a modified or unique BMW why not ask the Opie Experts for a Custom recommendation.

Where can I find the oil specifications for MY BMW?

If you do not have the owner’s manual for your vehicle, you can download it at the BMW USA owners manual download site (the oil specifications are always listed under the “FAQ” tab). We also strongly suggest you visit BMW USA and download a copy of the Service and Warranty Information Book for your model vehicle.
