BMW 540I CLUTCH PROBLEM

2002 BMW 540i • 146,000 miles

Hey guys,
heres a curve ball, im driving my car back fom maine and noticed pretty instatantly while driving that my cars engine sound inceases by like 50 %, sounds like im driving a truck in low gear up a hill or something. Its really loud and definetly wasnt like that before. I read some threads, some say it could be the fan clutch? Maybe transmission could have low fluid? I tried to check fo the dip stick for it but I cant see where it is.

What is the tachometer reading? If its the fan clutch, remove it and see if the sound goes away.
