Did you check around the upper timing chain cover gaskets? I found that these should be replaced along with the valve cover gaskets, otherwise there will still be leaks. They are easy to replace if you have been able to replace the valve cover gaskets.

My Bmw High mileage 320i E90 is having oil leaks problems they have changed the oil gaskets pipes from BMW butelp


clean the engine and check where it is coming from. Is it at the front of the rear> do you smell burning oil when you switch off the engine? Clean an area under the engine compartment and see where the oil is dripping from and get back to us. Typical places for leaks are the valve cover gasket, oil filter housing bracket.

My 2000 Z3 BMW smells like it is running hot. The dash gage shows normal (right in the middle) We have not found any leaks anywhere indicating that the water resivor overflows. Any suggestions?


Check the exhaust side of your valve cover gasket for evidence of an oil leak. Burning synthetic oil tends to smell like hot plastic.

Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.

How to replace valve cover gaskets on 1995 BMW 530I


sounds like a leaky oil presure switch. they will leak oil out of the wires comming out of them sometimes saturating the connector of the switch. If that isnt the problem then your oil pump is weak causing the lite to come on or your leak is so bad your oil level is so low the lite is coming on

My BMW seems to be leaking oil from the rear underside


the leak is most likely coming from either the differential cover gasket or the input flange that the drive shaft attaches to, this is called the pinion seal.

Car Oil Leak


bmw has a problem in that the exhaust manifold bolts are through to the rocker cover oil reservoir and the stud threads allow oil past the threads , past the washer and onto the hot manifold
the fix is to remove the studs and use a thread sealer in the threads to seal off the threads
use a quality thread sealer ( suggest loctite red gasket sealer as it is heat resistant)
there is nothing wrong other than a lack of bmw knowledge
discuss it with the bmw shop to see what they say
