    Type of transmission fluid to use 1991 850i auto

    I need help. I need to know what kind of transmission fluid to use.

    I have a 1991 BMW 850i with the Automatic Transmission.

    Went to a couple of auto parts stores and they both told me to use different kinds so I don't trust them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Car has 100K miles if that makes any difference.

    Thank you for the chart. However it only lists the 850ci and not the 850i.

    The transmission on your 850i is a 4HP24... look at the chart for fluid type...
