Correct Engine oil

Hi,

I own a BMW 2005 e90 325i auto with about 27k miles on the clock.

I recently had the low oil light come on and I researched oil that I could put in to top up. This resulted in me putting in Penrite 5W-40 oil. It is BMW LL-01 compliant/compatible so this looked fine to put in.

Subsequently, when I slow down to stop, I can feel the car changing down gears sometimes when it stops. This feels like a little bump in the car, nothing too significant but it is new. Also, when I am reversing or going forward very slowly, it feels like the car is trying to pull off. it revs up and down a little bit, a few times.

I am not sure if the oil top up I put in had any effect on this or if this is independent of the oil.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks for your help.

Engine oil wouldnt have anything to effect the feel of changing gears thats the transmission. But being a quart low would do any of those other things you say u feel. Just top it off
