4172Leaking ATF

      Hi everyone,

      I think the 3-spd auto tranny in my '83 520i might be leaking ATF:
      changing up is sluggish, there's a 'burnt' smell when I get out of the
      car, and a bit of white smoke floating around when I stop.

      There's also an 'oily looking stain' on my dad's driveway from where I
      parked last night.

      I haven't been able to look at it yet (although my wife gamely poured
      in about a litre of ATF fluid earlier this afternoon), but does anyone
      have any suggestions as to where I should look next?

      Are these sorts of leaks simple to fix or do I need to take it to a
      specialist?

      Cheers

      Michael
